About Happiness

In the twenty years that I have spent on this planet, I have never achieved long-term happiness by getting somewhere or achieving something.
Take materialism as an example, the thing you buy now will be ordinary to you after some weeks. It’s almost always like this.
Heck, even if it’s an individual you are trying to chase, once you chase them you might end up getting bored of them after some months (talking from experience :P).

Do What You Enjoy, Before It’s Too Late…

I have had my fair amount of existential dread in the past few years. It all led me to read books like “Sapiens” by Yuval Noah Harari or “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Victor Frankl but what really clicked my mind were those tiny extractions of lectures given by Alan Watts. I ended up listening to complete lectures. Man, he had this really soothing voice and he really knew how to convey his message. It was like he mixed all that Taoism in some liquid and injected it into my mind.

P.S.

I don’t write regularly because it’s something that I just enjoy doing as a side hobby and I really don’t write until I feel like writing.
I sometimes feel like my brain is hazy and my thoughts are foggy. I feel like I lack words to express what I truly wanna express but maybe it’s just part of the play. Maybe one day I’ll be able to truly express my thoughts through my words or maybe not.
