Life, Love, Happiness

Life, Love, and the pursuit of Happiness... where did we go wrong?
Happiness: We all had the thought as children that a simple thing like the a toy would make us happy for ever. It did for a short time, but then we realized that it wasn't new anymore. When the newness wares off it isn't as much fun and that lessened the happiness we felt because of it. I think the idea of short term happiness has grown to an epidemic in our current social world. Devoice rates are only one example. Car leases is another great example. Get rid of the car before you really don't feel that it isn't new anymore. Everything is built to be throwaway items now. Even people just create and toss relationships like it had no effect on them. And I am guilty of this short term happiness trend too.

Life: Up until now I thought this was because I was young and stupid. I did things like a foolish child would. Without thought of the end results. It was these stupid ideas and decisions that I look back on as the worst things in my life. They are wrong... almost evil looking now that I know better. I still have a lot to learn about how to survive in this world but I have found that my short term happiness can suffer as long as I am happy with the road ahead. It is in looking to the future that I find happiness. Because I know now that I doing right in my life. That I am truly a good person!

Love: Over the next few weeks I am going to be writing about the future as I see it. There will be a lot of geek things, computer talk, life choices, and a little about the love. Love is one of the hardest things for me to write about. It is strong feeling and an elusive one I haven't had a lot of experience with. It isn't an easy emotion to handle. I don't believe the feeling of real love is as simple as we have made it out to be. I think it is deeper than we can imagine. I think there are many people that don't have the ability to understand or feel what love really is. I am going to explore this within myself. I think we should all take the time to figure this out, because if you don't, you may meat someone that you love and never know it.

It is in the pursuit of happiness that we find that we may not be chasing the right thing. I think I need to change directions!



  1. I agree with what you said about relationships... it is really scary. We are all in search of the right "one" but that "one" 50% of the time asks to leave the relationship. Not really encouraging if you ask me.

    Life: wicked - wizardry :) Good person? Yes, you are. However... I ask you this. WHO determines what is good and bad? Where does that ideology come from?

    Andrew, what are you chasing?

  2. I am chasing the life of a good person. Who... everyone has there own idea what is good. Even the "good book" isn't absolute. Sometimes you have to have faith and believe what is within youself is good without having a source. If God or Christ is that source... than that is your source.

    In the end, true faith, has nothing to do with anything other than your own heart. And you have to believe that it is "right". faith is more than God or religion. It is a state of yourself that understands more than the human mind can.
