Recently I stumbled onto a YouTube video. It instantly helped me mentally coalesce all those reads about positive psychology and happiness ingested over the years into a pithy one liner. I intend to constantly re-chant this one liner to help me orient myself to the right goal.
“Happiness is doing
new things with old friends”
Being another soulless hamster chasing the double mortgage ? It’s a no from me dog. The senior designation where you get 300 emails instead of 200. It’s a no from me dog. Or the pitiful upgrade to platinum card where they now give a complimentary cookie on check in. It’s a no from me dog. Instead a shachiku like me (and you ?) ought to maybe try working at making time to do new things with old friends.
