Subject: Passport To Happiness?
If you possessed a Passport To Happiness, what would it look like? Where would you be traveling from, and where would you be traveling to, let alone the departure date and length of your stay? Who or what would have the power or authority to issue the Passport? This question is a sequel to the topic Fame, Fortune, and Romance. Some thoughts on the subject may include an individual wanting to be younger, or moving to a new city, meeting that "special" person, or even hitting The Lottery. For others it may include a level of self awareness, realization, or accomplishment. In other words, what is "Happiness?"

My topic post, "Passport To Happiness?" asks a lot of questions. Viewers of this forum may ask, Wentworth do you have your Passport? Sometimes questions are easy to ask, but when it comes to one's self answers are not that easy. Let me give it a try. For example, do I wish I lived somewhere else, yes. Do I want more money, no. Do I play the Lottery, no. Someone may ask, how about that "special person," well I've been there, done that, and it's called heart break hotel. Hello...maybe someone else can identify with that one. As for self realization and major accomplishments, let's just say I am a work in progress. In other words, am I happy? Yes, and no. P.S. SUNLIGHT, now it's your turn to kick in, as no doubt you will. Other comments on this "topic post" would be appreciated. Sincerely, Wentworth

Me.

"Where would you be traveling from, and where would you be traveling to..."

From womb to grave.

#

"...let alone the departure date and length of your stay?"

I'm 51 years into this trip...lookin' to squeeze out at least another 50.

#

"Who or what would have the power or authority to issue the Passport?"

Me.

#

"what is "Happiness?"

For me: autonomy.

I don't think it would look like anything, because it would not exist. You don't become happy by going somewhere or acquiring some thing. There is an old saying "Happiness is not having what you want, happiness is wanting what you have." Likewise, happiness isn't some thing or somewhere, happiness is in you or it isn't. You can be as happy as you choose to be.
