How happy are you―really? We are here to live a happy life!
Start your very own “Happiness Project” today by answering these questions openly and honestly about what you want from your life everyday.
The beauty of these questions is there are no right or wrong answers. They are just meant to get your wheels turning, and maybe help you reflect on the decisions you’ve been making, and the ones you’d like to make from now on.
1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

24. Have you accepted that the life you dreamed about as a child may not be where you are now?
25. If money was no issue, what would the one thing you would do for yourself this year?
These questions are powerful questions and can give us a chance to challenge our own ideals and perhaps shed some light on what we are and are not committed to and what we want for ourselves to make our life a Happy Life.
It’s important to understand that we don’t always recognize that we are always committed to something. If it’s not our own success or happiness, it’s staying safe and comfortable and not reaching out for more. Today, is the day to set goals, be fearless and believe that life is about the choices we make and the choices we take.
