Happiness #9 – Conquering Unhappiness

As mentioned in the previous post in this series, I have discovered the hard way that happiness can never happen when you become fixated on your unhappiness. I think this post will be the end of this series, as I am becoming happier each day now. So, what have I learned.

  • Happiness is a state of mind, not a destination
  • Until you lose your focus on being unhappy, happiness will never happen
  • What you do and especially think about daily has much to do with how happy you are
  • Happiness is a balancing act
  • Happiness is doing what makes you feel good
  • Happiness is enjoying each moment
  • Happiness isn’t about things
  • Happiness is a state of mind, not a condition of being

If I had to decide what the most important thing as to why I am happier now than when I started this series, it would be:

Happiness is about removing things from your life that makes you worry, especially things that you can’t do anything about.

When I was a young whippersnapper, I read every issue of Alfred’s magazine. So, maybe I just had to go back to my youth to understand what happiness is all about. Forget Socrates, Einstein, and the rest, Alfred taught me about happiness years ago. I just let all the stuff that has happened since drown out that message.🥸

Isn’t it interesting to know that even in 1956 as shown on the cover of Mad magazine, the Republicans and Democrats were going at each other. I really wasn’t aware of that then, and I hope to forget about all that negative stuff going on now.
