There are three primary forms of happiness, the happiness of pleasure, the happiness of grace and the happiness of excellence. The happiness of pleasure is largely sensory like a hug, a good meal when hungry or the smell of air after it rains. The happiness of grace is gratitude, its basically like taking inventory of what you do have. The happiness of excellence is like falling in love with the hike, the meaningful work and its flow, this builds character."
