What is the beginning of happiness?

What do sad people have in common? It seems they have all built a shrine to the past and often go there and do a strange wail and worship. What is the beginning of Happiness? It is to stop being so religious like that.

Grass-fed Beef — The Most Vegan Item In The Supermarket

I was thinking about that heretical idea as I drove through my neighboring countryside, scanning empty cornfields for signs of life and wondering at the hubris of mankind. When did we decide that we…

Fighting Depression

I am/was depressed today.

My sister texted me.

We never text and she usually has an agenda when she does text.

MY business is growing slowly. I hate being poor.

I live in a city that does not inspire me. So I have to learn to inspire myself.

I am in relationship that helps me grow, but is still unfulfilling.

My condo has another issue. I am thinking of selling it at a small loss.

That makes me sad.

I am out of shape.

What should I do?

My answer usually is Do Something.

I do not have a clear plan and need one.

I worked out and rested today.

Unproductive, but I am feeling better.

Tomorrow is another day.

Hopefully I will be happier tomorrow.

Baby steps to my ultimate goal.

Living in Japan.

Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself.

Love Yourself

Balance, true happiness, being present in the moment

This weekend I sat with a friend. He is highly intelligent, and has been seeking peace, balance, happiness. Like most millennials he loves to travel, do yoga, and Chase happiness. One thing he started noticing is most millennial’s that he goes to events with are broke. They’ll be happy whatever event they’re attending, but then when they get home they’re unhappy again. They do yoga, they travel, they do events, that most don’t have plans. They don’t have realistic goals. They are so extremely in the moment, that they forget about their future which eventually catches up with them. So for the first time ever he started thinking about How to help them. How does he improve on these seminars that make everybody so happy? How can he help the seminars have a more lasting impact? He wants to talk about finances. He feels it is an element missing from exercise travel spirituality eating diet friendship food, but there’s nothing about planning and finances. Most millennial’s I made her really happy. I’m a little shocked to find some millennial’s are deep in debt. That they have no plans. I feel my friend is probably right. Finances are a dirty word. Nobody likes to talk about them. Thoughts?
