Being happy is subjective. Feeling good about yourself and your life is also subjective. This, however, is what is most important to us. The challenge is how to identify what exactly makes you happy and what is necessary for your well-being, and how to sustain this over time. When searching for happiness it is important to be clear that your criteria must come from you and not from others. Look inside yourself and think about what would make you extremely happy if you lived on a distant island. Why? This realization will provide you with a new sense of clarity and control over your life. This is your opportunity to start living on your own terms.
