There’s more to life than being happy; the key is leading a meaningful life that rests on 4 pillars

A meaningful life

Our culture is obsessed with happiness, but what if there’s a more fulfilling path? Happiness comes and goes but having meaning in life — serving something beyond yourself and developing the best within you — gives you something to hold onto. Learn more about the difference between being happy and having meaning. Esfahani Smith offers four pillars of a meaningful life: belonging, purpose, transcendence and story telling.



In short, happiness is not a place or product but lies in processes. The four activities  that Emily Smith is outlining are not the only routes. There are as many as there are people; each unique to the circumstances in which a person lives. The trick is to be completely mindful during any process, allowing it to flow without resistance. Ancient wisdom, but valid even today.
