Is That All There Is?
There are a few things that people can agree on: bacon is good, Robert Downey Jr. is awesome as Iron Man and we would all like to be happy. The first two are a certainty but would you be surprised to find out that happiness is not an ideal that people believe is attainable? Happiness is seen as the unicorn being ridden by a leprechaun holding a fairy. People don’t think it is possible. We strive for contentment or a state that is somewhere in between but most of our needs are sated. Being content is that feeling after watching your favorite TV show; you aren’t bouncing off the wall with glee but you are not sad either. In other words, you feel neutral.
That idea just makes us conjure up images of Peggy Lee singing “Is that all there is?” If we really believed that all there was is contentment to look forward to then let’s chuck it all in and leave this place. Seriously, meh is what we are working towards???
We are here to reprogram how you think and one of those things is to remove any idea that there is no such thing as happiness. Before we get into the hardwiring, we need to get some things clear. So tell us, what makes your life worth living?
