At what point do you stop and say, “ok, this is it. I’ve arrived”? It’s always “when I (fill in the blank), I can be happy.” Is it elusive or is anyone ever right when he or she says “when I’ve completed/accomplished/achieved this, I’ll be happy”? We genuinely feel like we will. We genuinely believe we will. I genuinely believe that when I’m no longer in a permanent state of uncertainty that I’ll be happy. It’s hard not to think in that way. And if I just sit down, what is it I can do or accomplish or become? Maybe it’s just me, but I believe a different plane or level or state of being has to be realized before happiness can be achieved. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’ll be happy when I find out.
