When you feel the happiest, what are you doing?

Do you ever ask yourself this question? I think it’s a good one. Can you answer it straight away? I can give a myriad of answers but today I felt a form of happiness that I hadn’t felt for a while and it came about through video editing of all things.

I’m not sure if it was the act of editing video, or of creating resources for learning English, because I have had the same feeling from this before. But for whatever reason, it felt good, even though I know the video quality isn’t there. Perhaps it was just the creating part?

I was at a Zen conference in September when the CEO of a huge gaming company in Japan was giving a speech. He said that people feel the happiest when they’re able to express themselves creatively, and that’s the gift he was giving through his games. I think there is some truth in that. And that’s why even if I have to force myself, I try to be creative every day. And I think you should too.
