The World of If. 2016-01-02

HappyWhat is happiness? We certainly talk about it all the time. As Americans we have an inherent right to pursue happiness. We spend a lot of time convincing ourselves we are happy or if I just had more money, a better job, a bigger house, that purse that costs a mini fortune, the ring with more carats, the boots from the right manufacturer, I lived in the mountains, I was prettier or skinnier or more popular, my kids were perfect or my parents were perfect, the beige furniture instead of the brown, my appliances were stainless steel instead of a boring white, my life would be more whole, more happy if if if.  We spend a lot of time in the World of If. 

Happiness rules our thoughts and consciousness. It is what drives us.

Someone in Africa, Syria, Cuba, Venezula, or Alaska has an entirely different perspective of what happiness is for them compared to say someone in Upstate New York or the Midwest. Everything we in our ‘if’ bank in large part is based in ‘bankruptcy‘.

What  we’re wearing is of little importance as long as it’s covering us up, is clean, and comfortable. Where I’m from a certain cut or wash of jeans, the perfect hairdo, the flashy car with the built-in wifi and GPS, going to the $50+ per plate steakhouse, frosted hair, etc. is cool.  I agree, it’s way cool, and we are some of the most privileged and lucky people in the world. However, if you think happiness lies in things and other people, you are missing the best of the best of yourself. You are the happiness you seek. I’d believe that only ‘if‘ …Sandy
