Discovery of Happiness


You will eventually remember the important things. Sure, over the years you may
have been sad. How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child
suffers, or even when a car hits your beloved pet? But broken hearts are what give us
strength and understanding and compassion. Without be ing sad you will never know the
joy of being Happy. As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what
other people think. You have even earned the right to be wrong. You are not going to live
forever so do not waste time lamenting over what could have been, or worrying about
what will be. Just eat that sweet (If you feel like it) and be happy

SCIENTIFIC APPRECIATION
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of
human existence.
--Aristotle
Evolution through ages
Science over the ages has evolved based on hypothesis, experiments, analysis,
interpretation of observations and results and revisions due to better methods and
instruments becoming available. In medical c ircles, the experience of being happy can be
ascribed to having a proper abundance of the chemical neurotransmitter serotonin in our
brain.
However seeking refuge in "chemical happiness" alone can be quite a
challenging and ba lancing act in the long-term. Other scientists have theorized that
human be ings have actually evolved by being dissatisfied, suggesting that early humans
who were dissatisfied were apt to try a little harder to acquire the necessities and
comforts of life. Perhaps this trait of dissatisfaction would inspire them to hunt a little
better, to stash away more food, or to find a way to keep a bit warmer -- practices that
would have increased the likelihood of a longer life. With this longer life, came more
opportunities for passing on the ir "dissatisfaction gene " for generations to come - and
here we are.
