Happiness

Happiness (below) is a short film made by Steve Cutts. It’s a masterpiece.

We live in a society where the focus on wellbeing, wellness, and mindfulness is in the ascendant. It’s the natural corollary to lives lived in the shadow of an exploitative system. I’m not championing being workshy here, far from it. I am talking about the myths we are sold – about the true path to happiness being just ‘x’ or ‘y’ and hang the consequences.

Perhaps the true path to happiness doesn’t lie in unrestrained consumption, but rather in developing yourself and your own resilience?
