    Hi Carrie,

    As Luis said, happiness is the ultimate state to which we all aspire - hats down to you for being proactive in reaching this goal state! 

    Personally, I am always happiest when I have 2 things:

    1. Direction

    I always have a list of personal short-term and long-term goals that I want to achieve by a certain date. This helps keep me motivated in my life, and brings a great sense of inner fulfilment when I achieve these goals. 

    2. Connection

    I believe that life is all about connecting with those around us; it's about creating and maintaining meaningful relationships. Having a small and close support network is incredibly important in leading a happy life, as they are there for you during your ups and downs and provide external support and advice when you're in need of a helping hand.

    Hi Carrie!

    Happiness is what we all aim for in life, whether that be through wealth, family, career etc. Ways in which I have been able to be fully content with my life is accepting who I am as a person. There were many times in my life where I pretended to be someone who I wasn't trying to please the people around me. Accepting who I was initially made me lose some of my closes friends, but I eventually realised that if they did not accept me for who I truly was, well then they were not my friends at all. In saying this I found many new friendships which allowed me to be immersed in people that encouraged and supported me fully. This new attitude also helped my career as I focused more on the tasks at hand, rather than trying to impress my superiors. 

    Accepting who you are and embracing it, not trying to impress anyone is one of the greatest tips that I can give an individual. 


    Hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck!
