Everything Ends

8_everything-ends---black-print-web

I stumbled upon old blogs I used to follow. These people who used to post almost every day for a few years – started to gradually post less and less, and now nothing at all.

I see my own dailysatori, and see that I haven’t posted in over six months. Who knows when the next entry will come? I might never post again.

Everything ends.

Even the infinite wall of the internet will one day erase its existence from this plane. So what are we to do?

  1. Don’t take life too seriously. It’ll all be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
  2. Enjoy each moment – and person – and experience – to the fullest. It will all end, but it will all be perfect in the end.

It would be unnatural not to always want more.

It’s part of the human growth process,

A lifelong endeavor.

But I guess it’s about redefining what happiness is

to me…it’s an overall feeling of harmony.

Yes, I need a new job. Yes, I should get married. Yes, I could be living a healthier lifestyle.

But I am healthy enough, I have good friends and family (though the drama within fluctuates), and I have money (just not a lot).

So really…the question should be, what exactly is making you unhappy/unsatisfied?

Are you going to wait until you’re 40 to say… “Oh, I’m happy now” because you have a job, a house, and a wife?

Probably not…you’re going to be like, I could be richer, my wife could be sweeter, my house could be nicer.

And then you realize you’ve been chasing it your whole life, feeling like something is missing, when you should have just lived in the present and appreciated how good you had it.

Happiness

“I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy. You know, we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that fixes everything. But happiness is a mood and a condition, it’s not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry; it’s not permanent, it comes and goes, and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often.”
