The secret to a happy life

Day 200.

How could I not post on such a lovely round number of a sober day???

And …. how’s that for a teaser title??? LOL

In the current Hack Spirit newsletter (I highly recommend), there’s an article reviewing the results of a just-published 75-year Harvard study conducted to find out the secret of happiness.

I’m going to give away the ending here:

The #1 thing we need to live a happy life is each other.

That’s what apparently keeps us humans happier and healthier, relationships with other people.

I am currently visiting my father. It’s a relationship — in all its complicated glory — I treasure.  And so many other relationships in my life, during my life, that I have valued and/or do value and am thankful for.  (Did I say this is all easy-peasy smooth sailing, these relationships?!?! No. But let’s savour the moment.)

People who need people are the luckiest people in the world!
