Eudaimonia is that contented state of being healthy, happy and prosperous.
That human flourishing, bursting feeling in your chest when you travel or are in love. When it all feels right in your world. The constant change in travel often puts our senses in overdrive and the highs are higher than ever.
In Greek philosophy, Eudaimonia means achieving the best conditions possible for a human being, in every sense–not only happiness, but also virtue, morality, and living a meaningful life. It was the ultimate goal of philosophy: to become better people—to fulfill our unique potential as human beings.
“Eudaimonia is commonly translated as happiness, but I believe a more accurate translation would be fittingness: how well your actions match your gifts, match who you are.” (Derrick Jansen)
Living life as YOU, following your Passions, Gifts and Core Values.
So, instead of just happiness, Eudaimonia could be translated as: fulfillment, living a good life, human flourishing, and moral or spiritual success.
Eudaimonia is created from an image of a Bird of Paradise flower.
The Bird of Flower carries symbolism of:
-Freedom and the ability to travel, due to the flower’s resemblance to birds in flight
-Magnificence, excellence and success
-Royalty and a regal bearing
-Paradise on Earth
-Joy through challenges and successes alike
-Faithfulness in romantic relationships
-Optimism towards the future
The movement suggested by the spiked petals brings to mind a flock of birds gracefully departing.
The Bird of Paradise Flower’s Message Is stay open to new possibilities and seek your freedom wherever you can find it. Explore the world with a sense of optimism and excitement.
