There’s No Rules To Happiness
Okay, well maybe there is but it doesn’t mean it’s someone else rule. You know what I’m saying?
Someone finally has an epiphany and all of a sudden they have the answers to life and happiness. Now you get the opportunity to be force fed their ideology!!! Yeah you!!! Feeling lucky….hell no, you’ve been through this before but it’s your friend so you tolerate. Sad. And this still won’t bring any happiness to you.
So, what rule is there for happiness? Diet, nah. Exercise program, nah. Vacation, nah (that’s a temp fix). New career, quite possibly so, but I think that’s only a small part. A mate or new mate, nah (another of those temp thingys). Music, (for me!!! yes!!!!).
If you think about it regarding the few options presented above, the pursuit of happiness can be an adventure. You’ll find that your adventure will bring about a lot of more diverse opportunities of pleasure and enjoyment. So much happens when we journey outside our normal structure. I’m thinking fear of the unknown holds us all back.
But back to rules to happiness. Me, I was born in the 50’s and became part of the 60’s love and peace generation with a touch of ‘fuck you’ I’ll do what I want…. You too!!!! Cool!
I’m not much on rules. Rules is just us giving permission to someone else to control us…..not my cup of tea. Don’t let it be yours. I understand some people must have a structured life and rules help build that structure. I say to you, ‘Enjoy’. After all that structure puts you in your ‘happy place’ and there, you are happy. You have found your ‘happiness’ and that is what this is all about.
So, those rules…… Ah! How about this? If you’re not happy and you want to be happy change. Change something!!! Change the side of bed you sleep on. Change the hand you brush your teeth. Change the time you wake up. Change the bed (I couldn’t resist). Change your job. Change your mode of transportation. Change your geographical location. You may be a person that actually loves changes and you’ll keep experiencing a freshness because of those changes and that will be your happiness. But my point is here, if there is a rule………you’re not happy, make some constructive changes in your life. It doesn’t have to be something big, perhaps an interesting course at the local junior college (personally I wouldn’t do this on line, in person to interact with others unfamiliar to you) or recreation center. Start with something simple. Change things that you do, if you don’t, don’t expect different results. That’s about the only rule.
So, maybe there is a rule to happiness.
But even with that rule, There’s Is No Rules To Happiness.
Go, ahead, enjoy yourself!!!! Don’t let the opportunity pass you by. Break what ever chains are holding you captive and if a door isn’t open, climb thru the window.
Peace, Love, and Beaches,
