Happiness is the essential idea of life, mainly and mostly because it feels so much better than being unhappy, therefore if a person is unhappy for some reason, it seems logical to simply continue on the path, in the direction of happiness, until it arrives. This way not only do you not suffocate from being miserable, but all of the avenues to happiness remain completely open. You do not have to lie, live in denial, or play games like hide and seek. Just that little bit of freedom is in itself enough to bring happiness. Fear is the worst reason in the world to be unhappy, because you can be as unhappy as you’d like without being fearful at all. They do not require each other, but they are very often accompanied by one another. Fear eliminates happiness, and happiness eliminates fear. One’s fate or fortune is decided by one’s style! dwp

Sign of the Times

I have seen people while on the road, some who have evolved with life and grown beautifully, and others who are still doing exactly what they were 20 plus years ago. I have tried to figure it out, but for the life of me I just cannot comprehend how people can do the same exact thing day in and day out for ever and ever. I can’t understand WHY anybody would want to do the same exact thing day in and day out, when there’s so many things to do, so many things to see & read & experience, and fall in love with; there are so many countries, oceans, and mountains to climb. Oh well, I guess it’s just me…dwp
