Unchanged ~ Silhouette Saturday

An hour before midnight, a few hours ago, the family of my siblings and wife had returned to their respective homes. They came to celebrate my wife’s birthday because most of them could not come together that day.

We are gathered, from various age groups, from teens to 80s like my mother. We had dinner, joking, and chatting together. One of the interesting things that I can conclude from the conversation is that, in whatever age we live, whatever we wear, whatever vehicles we use – past or present, and to what extent technological differences in the past with the present, in words other, no matter how far the changes have brought us to this point, no matter how old we are, the essence or taste of happiness has never changed, whatever the cause, such as the sweetness of sugar throughout the ages. Likewise with longing, falling in love, or sore from wounds. So, what are we looking for?

  1. Not sure if I told you. But, having get-together with my own family, it erased everything that ever happened and the only things that remain are love, joy and gratitude that life blessed me with these people in my life. The past became irrelevant.

    • First, I feel grateful that you have all that with all the happiness that follows, which of course is supported by love.

      As a feeling and mental state, happiness does not change, “the taste” of happiness is always the same, maybe in different strengths or intensities, with different triggers. Of course, if happiness is associated with external stimulants.

  4. i would send you happiness as energy my friend.

    There is so much that can be shared, so much good in the world! Love is the most giving of the emotions for and of happiness.

    But we can also rise above pain to find happiness.

  5. I have read a lot about the state of happiness. And when you do that, you get many opinions. One that stood out to me said that happiness is a global pursuit. Researchers find that people from every corner of the world rate happiness more important than other desirable personal outcomes, such as obtaining wealth, acquiring material goods, and getting into heaven.

    As for how to find happiness, I think we all have to do that in our own way. I am always searching for ways to be more happy. I will get there eventually.
