A must read.

Is there a difference between a happy life and a meaningful life? How do the happy life and the meaningful life differ?  

In a new study, which will be published this year in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of Positive Psychology, psychological scientists found that a meaningful life and happy life overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately very different. Leading a happy life is associated with being a "taker" while leading a meaningful life corresponds with being a "giver.

Take this: "Happiness without meaning characterizes a relatively shallow, self-absorbed or even selfish life, in which things go well, needs and desire are easily satisfied, and difficult or taxing entanglements are avoided".
