H is for Hope and Happiness

H is for Hope and Happiness. We need both to survive.

Hope comes from believing that things will always get better and that anything is possible. Happiness is living as we believe, the life that we want without worrying what others will think of us. It does not actually matter what other people want for us if it makes us miserable.

We are all different for a reason. Each of us wants different things from this life, whether it is to immerse ourselves in the digital age, or to do everything in our power to return to a simpler time. Living the way we desire gives us happiness.

Hope from thinking that we can achieve something that we desire. When we give up hope we become miserable. In this way hope and happiness are directly connected. Less stress is put on us when we our happy, living a life without regret and full of smiles means that we our not wasting energy on the negative aspects of the world. 

Here's hoping you keep your hope and increase your happiness.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.

“He knows he’s dying.”
