If there’s one thing all right-thinking readers of this blog can agree on it’s that there are few things sadder than the first ever United Nations International Day of Happiness.
It was on Wednesday, 20th March. I sat it out and feel none the worse.
Here is Action for Happiness.
Here we learn that ‘The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal‘. I wonder where they got that idea from.
Pursuing happiness is like trying to catch a wild horse on the open prairie. Futile. One must be oneself and the horse will decide if you’re worthy of its presence. If you pursue it, it will run away.
Most of us wouldn’t know what to do with happiness if it dropped into our lap. Strive instead for equanimity.
There’s something deranged about this International Day of Happiness.
