mEAniNg & HaPpiNeSs

I have been searching for a long while. Not for the elixir of life. I don’t want to live forever. But I do want to know this. How do I live a happy and meaningful life? For happiness seems so fleeting, and meaning so ambiguous.

Many many years ago, my best friend and I tried to define what happiness is. I don’t think we were too successful. Happiness defied definition. Many years ago, I embarked on a personal journey to discover the meaning of my life. I don’t think I was too successful. Meaning defied discovery.

Is happiness what makes life meaningful? Is meaning what makes life happy?
