Congratulations. You are the Happiest Person Today!

HUA-HI adj. happy

(this one is from SISUAHLAH library of unpublished blogs... to coincide with my holiday this weekend)

How much do you value happiness? How much would you pay for something that can increase your happiness to another level?

Why are we, as a nation, getting richer but not happier?

The British Household Panel Survey concluded that most people start off happy and become progressively less happy as they grow older. For many people, the most miserable period in their life is their 40s. Well, if you are reading this and you are under 40, don't despair: You do not have to be the average guy in these statistics!

The subject of life satisfaction is indeed missing from our school curriculum. Our government is obsessed with economic growth and being the world's No. 1, so much so that we are probably told that IT IS NOT A BAD THING to compromise our happiness and well-being for career utopia and wealth-creation! Why teach kids on how to be happy?

We need to stop comparing ourselves with others. Life is not a race or a competition. This is not about survival of the fittest. When was the last time you had to physically chase and wrestle a gazelle for dinner? Believe it, this short life is about the survival of the happiest!!


(1) Learn to trust and respect others
(2) Watch less TV and advertisement
(3) Work hard only because you want to and NOT because you were told to
(4) Celebrate our wealth by helping others to be equally wealthy
(5) Status symbol & status gap are for primitive aninmal kingdom: we have evolved above that
(6) Vote against corrupt government
(7) Remember, the loser amongst us is the least happy guy, and NOT the poorest one.
(8) Travel and meet new people

So I hope you'll take HAPPINESS a little more seriously. SISUAHLAI.
