Happiness conference...

Earlier this year there was a conference on Happiness ... who knew that there was a conference on happiness. There was a piece in Thursdays paper about Hugh Mackay's presentation ... where he reminded the delegates that "through sadness, disappointment, grief, failure, and doubt that people learnt and grew". The idea that we need to fail to learn how to cope (and to my mind find success), resonated along with the comment that if he had to wish anybody something it might be "Be whole' since wholeness strikes me as a far healthier, more realistic goal than happiness."
