We’re talking about happiness once again. We’re in our sixth of a series, called Being Happy, and the title of today’s presentation is Meaning. This is how Martin Seligman defined meaning (He’s the scientist, by the way, that’s doing all the research right now on happiness.): Using our strengths to contribute to a larger purpose. Meaning – meaning in life.
If you live in a rural village in China, helping your family to plant rice in the spring would be contributing to the greater good of the family and you would, possibly, feel a sense of belonging and contribution and, thereby, have a sense of meaning and, thereby, be a bit happier. If one of your resources is spare time, walking through the neighborhood with a trash bag and one of those pick-up sticks might make a person feel better.
