Unreasonably happy

I am happy. For no reason. That’s just fine, since reasons can be pulled away beneath your feet like a carpet. There should only be reasons for unhappiness. You can get rid of them.

Reason is overrated anyway, it won’t take you very far and it doesn’t promote happiness on its own. The search for reason behind the unreasonable is actually a source of constant frustration. Sometimes it’s just fine to let go and enjoy life as it comes.

  1. I love your posting on Laetitia Sadier! O, hello, allow me to introduce myself. I’m a doctor! (of Classics). I teach Latin in Indianapolis. I am also an artist (with crayons) and a musician (guitar). I played in punk bands in the 80s (Victims of Society and Sinister Cinema). Cool blog, Dora! And I like this particular entry because I am unreasonably happy and optimistic most of the time even though my life, by most objective measures, SUCKS! (I am separated from my wife and 3 children for months at a time throughout the year–only see them on holidays and summers–which is crazy because I absolutely love my wife and the kids are growing up sooo fast.) Brilliant formulation concerning the disposable nature of reasons, which I surely shall apply to my life in future. Now, on to your other posts!

    1. Thank you! Most of my blog is in german, here I just started to translate some posts. Knowing that there is people who like to read it is the perfect motivation to keep on doing it. A lot of the stuff I write is about local politics which is not very interesting for the rest of the world. But there is a lot of general things I write about.
