HAPPYDOM by the name of Nigeria::

“Pleasure comes from the outside, happiness from the inside.” – Remez Sasson
     Nigeria is the happiest country in the world (i read it today in one of the many burgeoning statistical reports). Yet the majority of its citizens live at the poverty level of $2/day (and yep i took the liberty of reading 'bout Nigeria in wiki). They’re not rich, educated or well traveled. They aren’t sky diving, swimming with dolphins, flying around in private jets, getting a thai massage or showering under waterfalls. But they are happy.
     Could it be that advertisers have steered us wrong? That our ability to enjoy life isn’t truly amplified with fancy cars, 5-story homes, picture perfect body, supermodel looks, prada gucci or skin that never sags? I won’t pretend to be wise enough to know for sure.
     But if any of us hope to discover why Nigerians are the happiest people in the world, then I think we need to recognize that which we seek, we already must contain. Its not about the things we have, its about how we see them. Its all perspective. So if you think you are unhappy, how about trying to re-adjust the perspective. We eye on the green grass over the fence just so much that we forget that the people over the fence are eying on ours. Just the thought here.
     Happiness comes from within.
     So here’s my question to you, how do you unlock it?
