Happiness is one of those elusive and mysterious things that all of us seek out but none of us really know how to achieve. In fact, we often find it without really knowing how we got there. It always just seems to happen by chance or it doesn’t happen at all. Isn’t there some kind of doctrine on how to achieve happiness? Certainly tools for attaining happiness have been put into writing by ancient religions and creeds for centuries, but there’s never been a universal method that’s been agreed upon by everyone.
I’m not here to try to convince anyone that any doctrine works above all else when it comes to attaining happiness. I’m not writing this to try and push any one theory on happiness or say that only one way works.
A release from the stress of adulthood, whatever you might consider that. Far too often (I originally typed that out as fart… it’s okay to laugh about it. We’re only human… whatever that means), we become stuck in the mundane monotony of 21st century living. Our fingers are more familiar with touch screens than touching other skin, our vision deteriorates from staring at screens, 95% of our income is locked to auto-pay for bills, and we look forward to… nothing. We’ve found a way to allocate 23.9 hours of the day to what we need to do to stay afloat.
