What is happiness? It’s spending time with family and friends, and taking the time to appreciate nature and art. We foster it when we enjoy activities, old and new hobbies, or learn new skills. It is created by appreciating the small qualities in ourself and others. We experience it when we know that we can make changes, even small ones. My OT mentor would say: “start out each day ready to change lives, even if at the end of the day you did that just with a smile.” Happiness is defined by our relationships and our ability to experience self-growth.
