Tough lessons learned in the pursuit of "something better". Forgotten passions and broken promises.
I hold firm, the opinion that ultimately, a life well-lived is one filled with some measurable level of happiness. Regardless of the specific ways in which you or I may define happiness, or what it means to be happy, we both understand the value and the enriching powers of happiness. But beware, for happiness is an elusive, shape-shifting clever little creature. It gets us acclimated to one version of itself then it abruptly leaves us. We often spend our entire lives trying to catch another glimpse of it. Most of us often come up empty on our quest to recapture what once was. To put the genie back in the bottle if you will. We often search tirelessly for happiness, not realizing that what we once knew has transformed into a new version of itself. A 40- year old father of three's version of happy looks nothing like that of a 3-year-old boy. As we travel through time and space, we must see to it that we adapt our version of happiness and expectations of, to fit whichever chapter of life we find ourselves on. We must define happiness and seek the tools and resources to help as closely as possible mirror our reality to our dreams.EXCERPTLife on arrival: The Happy Planet Index (HPI)So what is the end game here? No, really - When this life is over when it is all said and done, what would you like to have accomplished? Not to get all gory on you, but this, I think is a real question.
