For – an idiot of a woman, who’s not such an idiot really, actually probably smarter than me, if that’s possible. Hard to believe I know !
To foster happiness – Switch on the TV, go watch a movie, eat a pizza. Do whatever makes you happy, don’t work at it, take the shortest route, happiness should be easy.
START OF CREATIVE WRITING
Happiness, that great illusive what-a-ma-jig thing-a-me-bob, that no one can quite define. Temporary it’s said. Elusive it’s said. Not to be found in drink, drugs or sex, or at least only temporarily.
Why are so many people so unhappy ? Beats me. Well it doesn’t actually, it makes a lot of sense to me.
The imagination, unexplored and largely left to run riot on it’s own. The supercomputer of all supercomputers left to run idle, do nothing, well not nothing, more mischief than nothing. Switch on the TV, watch some reality TV, let someone else’s imagination entertain. Movies, love ’em, but what happened to thinking and feeling for myself ?
So what then of the before, before we had TV, before we had movies, before we had newspapers. What then did people do to entertain themselves ?
I’d hazard a guess that the answer may not be in the without, but in the within. With one’s own private supercomputer at one’s disposal, anything is possible, the imagination does not limit. Pink elephants are real, who knew !
The first step is to untangle the mess that’s created by quick fixes. The letting someone else entertain, program one’s mind for their own gain. Reorganise, rebuild, reprogram, reboot, get that ginormous machine working for what it was designed for. Become master of oneself as opposed to servant.
Explore, have a look around, yes there’s some scary shit in there, but there’s also some state-of-the-art cool shit in there too. Learn to drive, instead of being driven.
My TV’s broken at this moment, landlord will fix it in time, no biggie. So I have a look inside for the entertainment, what can I imagine ? could be more fun than a movie ? … quite possibly. Use my imagination, it’s the control panel for my supercomputer. Potential unlocked. What has this to do with happiness ? Happiness is something we can generate inside. We don’t need someone else to entertain us, to “make us happy”, we can do it for ourselves. Is it easy ? No takes effort and persistence. Happy people were either born incredibly lucky or they worked on making themselves happy. I could hazard a guess. Put the effort and the hours in, and the results happened. Maybe this is the way of things ?
What do I know, maybe the answer is on Google or channel 38 ?
END OF CREATIVE WRITING
Is there a summary for bottom feeders ? Yes, here it is …
Fostering happiness – Switch on the TV, go watch a movie, eat a pizza. Do whatever makes you happy, don’t work at it, take the shortest route, happiness should be easy. Everyone knows this Don … DOH !
Watch out for the purple Zebras 😀
