I never really thought much about happiness until I came to live in America. In Rwanda, in the poor area where I grew up, most people were happy just having enough food to spare their family from starvation. I guess that’s why I always assumed that people who lived in rich countries, where everyone had so much of everything, would be happy all of the time. But when I left Rwanda and began traveling I realized this wasn’t true, and that so many people I met in Europe and America weren’t happy at all. That’s when I started wondering about what true happiness really is, and how we can all find it and make it a part of our lives.
