Paths to happiness - not just for 2022!

Today I want to tell you a short story that I find particularly beautiful.

A teacher gave each student a balloon, who had to inflate it, write his name on it and throw it into the hallway.
The teacher then mixed up all of the balloons. The students had 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite a
hectic search, very many did not find the balloon with their name on it. Now the teacher asked the students to
take the first balloon they came across and give it to the student whose name was written on it. Within 5 minutes
everyone had their own balloon. The teacher told the students, "These balloons are like happiness. We will never
find it if everyone is just looking for their own. But if we care about other people's happiness ...
we will find our own too."

With this in mind, I wish you all a happy & healthy new year 2022!
