Today is the first day of 2024. I browsed the WhatsApp site of my Hong Kong classmates and Facebook. There are many “Happy New Year” greetings. There are also many pictures of celebration and feasting.

But I don’t want to wish you a happy New Year. Rather, I hope your new year will be a good mix of happiness and meaning. As I understand it, meaningfulness is more important than happiness. After all, happiness is fleeting.
