Examination of life means for me world exploration. Life is created from many different activities. Through these activities humans are examining their lives. People during their lives are learning many new things, are creating new things, and are meeting new people. Moreover, they are developing their interests. These activities are giving people happiness. Unexamined life means for me very sad and boring life. Consequently, not exploring life is not worth of living. People who do not have any interests are losing a lot of enjoyment. I can not imagine, if somebody do not have any hobby. For example I love drawing. When I have free time I am making small sketches. Moreover, I am drawing them when I am angry or stressed because this activity helps me calm down. Drawing is part of examination of my life because it is part of me. As well drawing is giving me a lot of enjoyment and fun. I can not imagine my life without making these sketches. People are learning all the time. My parents showed me and explained how to cook some meals. They also taught me how to ride a bike. I was laughing when I started ride on bike, and I was happy when I baked my first cake. However, I am still learning because I am attending to the college. Moreover, English is my second language which I am still improving. I am very happy when I have good grades because I know that I know something new. For me all these activities are part of examination of life. These facts are presenting that people are learning at every stage of life. I can not imagine what I could lose in my life when I not bake my first cake, ride a bike, and learn English. Consequently, I will be learning some new things in the future as well because through them I examine my life.…
innocent little kids, we played with our Barbie dolls or GI joes, with no worry in the simple little world in which we lived. As easy as life came for us during our childhood years, we all were too eager to grow up already. It is not until we finally get there and begin to emerge into adolescence or in other words developing into a teen, we begin to acknowledge that life is much more difficult than we had imagined. Goodbyes were far worse than a simple “see you tomorrow”, pressure of acceptance and rejection…

Happiness Throughout Life
In this day and age jobs can take up a big portion of your life. If you are unhappy at your job, you will be unhappy a large part of your life. Thats why I would rather have a satisfying job over a high paying job because, I want to be happy in life, you can’t buy happiness, and money causes problems.
Everyone goal in life should be to be happy. When my grandfather graduated high school he got a job at a recreation park in Carrollton, he loved playing sports in high…
that there can be a good life that can be defined for all humans generally? If not, why do we think that certain lives (like those of great humanitarians) are more worth living than other lives (like those of career criminals)?
Defining happiness can seem as elusive as achieving it. We want to be happy, and we can say whether we are or not, but for all can it really be defined? And can we use this learning to become happier? Aristotle believes that there can be a good life that can be defined for…

~Happiness as the Chief goal of Ethics
Is and/or should Happiness be the Chief goal of Ethics?
One may argue that other entities in life make up the top
priorities of Ethics, such as Religion, Moral Code, as well
as other virtues. Yet, is it not true that happiness is all
derived from the aforementioned. Therefore, by being able
to stand for something and have morals to believe in,
humanity has the chance to obtain happiness. The real
question lies in the difference…
decide to do another activity of their own. After that, the skill meter should stay above their head until you start another Cooking, Fishing, or Gardening skill activity. As an added bonus, you can train two skill points at once. For example, work out and both the Athletic and Cooking skills will continue to rise. If you keep repeating the steps until each skill channel has been viewed, the Sim will keep learning the three skills as he or she goes on about their daily life, and four when doing skill…

Week 1: The Hedonistic Component
For my first week of the happiness project, I decided to relax and listen to music. I decided this would be my “me” time because, like the late Bob Marley said, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” The multiple genres of music spark my interests and lift my spirits in ways only seen I movies. After listening to large quantities…
The meaning of happiness is contentment and satisfaction. Finding true happiness is a worthy goal. The problem is many turn to material possessions to reach that goal. Even if that new car, diamond ring or cute outfit makes a person happy, it will be short lived and will leave them longing for the next high. The new car smell fades. The diamonds collect dust. The outfits become outdated. True long-lasting happiness comes from positive relationships, life experiences…
Hunting for Happiness
Here I sit, staring at this blank page document on my laptop screen,1 thinking of a way on how to start this book that will easily grab your attention. My introduction has to be outstanding and be able to persuade you into continuing to read this book you have on your hands. But reading a long introduction paragraph about what you’ll eventually be reading about is not what you want anyway, is it? Since I’m more of the “cut to the chase” type of girl, my introduction, just…
Philosophy: Guide to Happiness. Epicurus on Happiness
April 20, 2015
Ever since ancient times human beings have looked to philosophy for the secret of happiness. Epicurus found more knowledge on the pursuit of happiness than any other philosopher out there. Very little of Epicurus has survived over the years, most of his books have been lost over the centuries leaving his suggestions on happiness to be reassembled with few remains of information. Epicurus did believed that we could…
