Are you happy? Do you even know what that means?
I’ve been thinking about happiness a lot lately and then I found this amazing quote by Hugh MacKay
“We’re kind of teaching our kids that happiness is the default position. It’s rubbish. Wholeness is what we ought to be striving for and part of that is sadness, disappointment, frustration, failure; all of those things which make us who we are. Happiness and victory and fulfillment are nice little things that also happen to us, but they don’t teach us much...I’d like just for a year to have a moratorium on the word “happiness” and to replace it with the word “wholeness.” Ask yourself, “Is this contributing to my wholeness?” and if you’re having a bad day, it is.”
Happiness vs. wholeness, I dive into this idea and the full quote on my blog. Go check it out (link in bio).
