I heard this from a homily.
Filipinos are the second happiest and most optimistic people in Asia, having a positive outlook on life in general, a joint study by Axa Asia Life and research company Taylor Nelson Sofres showed.
On the other hand, Filipinos rank 78th among 167 nationalities rated as the happiest in the world, according to a new survey published Friday that measures health, wealth, education, sense of identity and the aestheticquality of the landscape. (Haha, we shouldnt be that happy at all!)
There may be three kinds of lies:
2. Damn Lies
But still I believe in the above statements.
We may be Not So Happy, So So Happy, Plain Happy, or Extremely Happy- but all of these fall under the caterogy happy instead of the other choice unhappy.
Filipinos are the happiest among Asians, and one among the happiest people in the world despite the many problems they have to face everyday. Huh?
Do you know the secret behind this?
I know why!
Because there is a MEANING.
And meaning is rooted in our RELATIONSHIPS.
Relationship with God, with family, with a partner, friends, etc...
We have lots of those, so di tayo mauubusan ng reasons to live! This explains siguro why we are a happy nation- despite and inspite of.
Ikaw, are you happy? (--,)
