This Thought Could Make Your Day or Week … Or More

Here it is

We all want to be happy, right?  But happiness is elusive. We cannot just order up a happy sandwich and feel the effect. On the other hand, we can “get into” stuff. We can feel the flow, for example, of a great story or game.

That “getting into stuff” is very powerful. It stokes us into mental states that open doors. It is a path to happiness. And a lot of that door opening happens because of a release of dopamine.

That is enough background. Here is the idea

“Dopamine is not about pleasure; it’s about the anticipation of pleasure. It’s about the pursuit of happiness rather than happiness itself.”

Think about it. All you need to do is pursue. Go for it!
