A couple months ago I watched a few TED talks by Matthieu Ricard, who researchers at the University of Wisconsin have called the "happiest man in the world". For thirty-five years he's dedicated his life to happiness. He has studied the science behind it, lived it, and shared his experience with the world.
Since watching these videos, I've tried to be conscious of what makes me happy, but it wasn't until last Thursday when I became a father for the first time that I understood what it feels like to be the happiest man in the world.
