Usage notes: The French expression trouver son bonheur is used both literally and figuratively. It can mean to search for and find something real, like a photo lost in a jumble of old souvenirs or the perfect shirt at a garage sale. Or it can refer to something a bit deeper, something abstract that makes you happy.
|Tu as trouvé ton bonheur dans ces cartons ?||Did you find what you were looking for in those boxes?|
|(dans un cours d’art)
Alors, vous avez trouvé votre bonheur ?
|(in an art class)
So, have you found joy? Are you working on something that makes you happy?
Trouver son bonheur usually refers to something fairly short-term or temporary, as opposed to trouver le bonheur which means “to find true happiness.”
