Most of us spend our entire lives on this endless quest: working hard to get good grades, working harder to receive a promotion, earning enough money so that we can retire. But when does it end? When do we conclude that we’re happy enough — that we’re satisfied and can finally live in peace?
I love this post. You have expressed eloquently what I find so hard to express – that happiness isn’t found at the fulfilment of our desires, but in the present moment.
I’ve highlighted a portion of your post that might be a little confusing to readers. I think you’re speaking from the position of someone seeking money, fame, pizza, whatever, but you make it sound like they should choose when their happiness level is “enough”. Yet, you have already explained they are sort of on a treadmill of chasing happiness and will never really get there.
If I get what you’re saying, I think you want to point out that chasing our desires is the wrong strategy if we want to be happy. This is why the sentence about being happy “enough” is a little confusing to me.
Anyway, just my two cents. Keep up the great work!! :)
