Piggy of Happiness

There are trillions of philosophical dissertations and articles on how to be happy or why one is not happy. Being happy is simply deciding to want to be happy, sounds too simplistic right?

‘The Pig of Happiness” explains wonderfully why some people are happier than others. Feeling upset and sad are feelings that we all have and they are very normal but they should make for fleeting moment of our life and not what life is all about.

Watch this short cartoon film with piggy as the main protagonist teaching us a great lesson on happiness.


As you can see this is a very simple cartoon with no fancy effects or elaborate plots but very effective at delivering it’s intended message. Happiness is simple, simple and small things you do bring happiness to your self and even other people.
