Chase Meaning, Not Happiness

I see such an obsession with happiness these days. It's sad.

There's different sorts of happiness, but the one people seem after the most is the lowest, saddest form of happiness - a pleasurable mix of biochemicals.

Do you know how cocaine works? It's what's known as a triple-reuptake inhibitor. It makes some of the happiness chemicals - serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine - cycle out of your brain more slowly, giving you wonderful feelings.

And - so what? You've got more happiness chemicals in your brain so you bliss out? How could anyone in their right mind think this is the meaning of life?

I try to do things that I find meaningful, ideally on the largest scale I can. I'm not there yet, but I'm trying. I still need to get stronger in other areas, get more disciplined. But I'm working on it.

My rusty bucket list

On Rgooglin Around

So I'm over 55 and I still have things I need to accomplish. The problem is even tho a lot of these things are dreams and goals I made in my 20's, my body cannot do (as easily) what it could all those so many years ago.

My bucket is getting rusty and my list is gonna fallout if I don't take better care of me and start crossing some things off of the list!
