My friend and I discussed an ongoing debate. If given a choice, would it be better to experience both happy and sad in life, or just be happy all the time?
I chose to be happy all the time. But, now everyone I ask says it's important to experience both or, "how would you know what being happy is?"
I say, "The question clearly asks about happiness. But, let's assume you are correct and I couldn't experience true happiness making this choice. I wouldn't think I was missing anything either. I wouldn't have to process all the issues and deal with all the ups and downs. Just remain in a state I am familiar with."
For some reason, I can't wrap my head around why I am in the minority in this thinking. Must be missing something.
I think colors and nature are forms of happiness, but maybe not for everyone. If they are, these I share with you.
From the archives of memory card #1, here are some of my seasonal best.
