What is “Shiawase?”

I was browsing my WordPress Dashboard today and saw that the top search on my blog is “definition of shiawase.”  I did a search of my own and realized that it isn’t really defined anywhere here, so here’s the scoop…


From the Japanese Language section of About.com, you can see that the basic definition of “shiawase” is happy.  I juxtaposed the term with the english “life,” of course, to create a blog title that explains my outlook – and in a sense, explains me.  I know things are not always perfect – in fact, they often are not – but with the right attitude, it can be a lot cheerier.  Plus, the title is Jap-english – kinda like the way I speak Japanese!

What is your ‘shiawase’ ?
