Happiness is a prominent feature of exuberance.

A recent Psychology Today article by Suzanne Degges-White entitled Four Keys to Happiness: Live in Harmony with Others to Best Enjoy the Music of Life (July 2015) focused on just four qualities essential to happiness. One of these is gratitude, which has already been recognized. The other three are cheerfulness, kindness, and compassion.

Unlike the way we learn language and religion, namely from parents or guardians who educate us and others who influence our early years, most of us don't think much independently about our unique purposes or other existential-like questions. Only after years of experience and personal development do we develop the ability to identify and describe our own vision of goals and meanings, if ever.
As time passes, we often make new discoveries, and our ideas about meaning change and evolve. Just when we think we've found our purpose (s), things happen and we realize that additional adjustments are in order. We can do well to learn to expect this, to stay tuned to further possibilities that seem interesting, sometimes compelling, and even consistent in reshaping our reflections on such matters.
