happiness, Success and recognition of worth
represents happiness through self and one’s own efforts
rather than through others, achievement and is often used
as a focus for those needing success.
the Vikings happiness meant enough food, shelter and wealth
and acceptance as part of a kin and although this rune
only appears in the Anglo-Saxon Poem, the symbol is one
who knows few, (sometimes translated as `a little’) of
troubles - but also who himself has power and blessedness.’
The second translation makes more sense, suggesting that
it is those who have experienced hardships who know the
importance of taking happiness as it comes and above all
finding personal joy through one’s own actions and not
expecting life to provide bounties.
