Gift #473

The cult of happiness seems to be rooted in a sense of entitlement. When an economic downturn takes away what some thought they were entitled to, we hear bitter cries of blame and doom. “My right to happiness has been violated.”

Those not affected by entitlement are still experiencing positive emotions, are engaged in life and find their lives to be meaningful, even though they may have to do some belt tightening. Come to think of it, that is how Dr. Martin Seligman, who pioneered modern positive psychology, defines authentic happiness.

This authentic happiness is what you are entitled to...just keep reminding yourself about it.
