The Pursuit of Happines

For once, I’ll try to write a post in English. I don’t really know why, but what the hell…anything that gets me to post sooner is a good enough reason, right?

So another new thing I’m trying to do tonight is using a title that has something to do with what I’m writing about.

The “The Pursuit of Happiness” is actually the title of a song I’m a bit obsessed about these last couple of days.

Although I’m not a big fan of rap, I really like this song and a few others by this Kid Cuddy guy. A Youtube comment even got stuck in my mind. It reads something like “Kid Cuddy is not a rapper, he’s an artist”

Well, I’m not really sure about that but who am I to judge?

What I like most is this part right here:

“I’m On The Pursuit Of Happiness
And I Know Everything
That Shines Ain’t Always Gonna Be Gold
I’ll Be Fine Once I Get It; I’ll Be Good”

And  so, as I normally do, I started to make connections between this chorus and what people aim for in life.

Then I remembered my number one motto. The thing I try most to live by: No one is the same! So I don’t even try to categorize people. That’s why in my posts, I usually talk about myself, and the stuff I realize over the years.

I started the process again, only now, the only subject I’m analyzing is me.

And I guess this whole idea of chasing happiness, while avoiding the things that stand in your way, is kinda my goal too.

It’s easy to get distracted by things that seem important but actually are just obstacles in your development. But then again, aren’t all the decisions you make part of your development? I mean, without the luxury of seeing the aftermath before you act, can you really say that you’re making the right choice? I say you can’t, but it’s really important to keep in mind that “not everything is gonna be gold”. That way you will be prepared when, the shit hits the fan and you do the wrong thing. And you will.

Before I quit bugging you with this stupid interpretation of a rap chorus, I would like to ask another rhetorical question, like the many before in this post: Once you get it, will you be happy? I mean, my understanding of the human mind leads me to believe that once you get it, you will want a bit more…to be just a bit happier. So…it’s ironic: do you want to be happy if you know that it will only lead to problems you never even thought about until now?

Let’s just try to be pleased! I mean, it’s a milder adjective, and for me it implies enjoying the smaller joys in life, being contempt with what you are able to achieve and stop giving yourself a hard time for things you are never going to be able to change.

I say contempt, but, by no means do I suggest that you shouldn’t aim higher…you should, I do! But some things will always be out of your reach and worrying about it will only make you unhappy.

Contrary to what you may believe, this post does try to only refer to me, but if you identify yourself with my random ideas…maybe it refers to you too. Who knows:)

Good Night!
