Hello my dear happiness nerds, welcome (back)!
Sorry for the relatively long absence, I’ve been very busy with real-life deadlines. As this state of affairs will likely outlast this January, I’d thought I’d give you a little gem of a quote in the meantime (I’m also working on a retrospective of the 2010s in terms of happiness, so stay tuned!). I encountered it in this beautiful conversation during my lunch break today.
”If you purify the pond, the water lilies die.”– William Stafford
I’m curious to hear your interpretations in the comments. I’ll reserve mine for the discussions there, just this much in advance: As a passionate purist, I know that internalizing the truth behind this aphorism would bring my happiness to the next level. One challenging task towards more happiness is to make peace with the complexity of life over and over again.
If you like what you see, please like and follow! If you think that somebody else might, too, please share—it would be my honor! If you want to receive and e-mail every time I post something new (which is usually twice a month), but you don’t want to open a wordpress account for that you can do that, too (see sidebar or below the post, depending on which device you’re reading on right now).
