“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you. The one who turns to his friends and says, ‘that’s her.’”
Find arms that will hold you at your weakest times, eyes that will see your beauty at your ugliest times, and a heart that will love you at your worst.
Liking Frank Wilczek’s idea of innovation – I one’s perceived the word with help of merriam-webster.com as follows:
* INNOVATION = the introduction of something NEW; a new idea, method, or device; NOVELTY
* NEW = being other than the former or old; different from one of the same category that has existed previously; beginning as the RESUMPTION or repetition of a previous act or thing (e.g. the new edition)
* RESUMPTION = an act or instance of resuming
* RESUMING = to pick up again; to begin again something interrupted; to make a summary
* NOVELTY = something new or unusual; newness
"It is reasonable to suppose that the goal of a future-mind will be to optimize a mathematical measure of its well-being or achievement, based on its internal state. (Economists speak of ‘maximizing utility”, normal people of ‘finding happiness‘.) The future-mind could discover, by its powerful introspective abilities or through experience, its best possible state the Magic Moment – or several excellent ones. It could build up a library of favourite states. That would be like a library of favourite movies, but more vivid, since to recreate magic moments accurately would be equivalent to living through them. Since the joys of discovery, triumph and fulfillment require novelty, to re-live a magic moment properly, the future-mind would have to suppress memory of that moment’s previous realizations. – A future-mind focused upon magic moments is well matched to the limitations of reversible computers, which expend no energy. Reversible computers cannot store new memories, and they are as likely to run backwards as forwards. Those limitations bar adaptation and evolution, but invite eternal cycling through magic moments. Since energy becomes a scarce quantity in an expanding universe, that scenario might well describe the long-term future of mind in the cosmos."

"Everyone searches desperately for happiness but the price that we must pay for it is generosity."
– Frederic Back
It’s a spiritual truth that true happiness requires honest
self-reflection. The more honest you are with yourself, the greater happiness you will experience. Being truthful brings about an inner ease and happiness flourishes when as John O’Donohue writes, “We feel at home in our life.

How To Find Happiness Within Yourself
So all those desires originated from something that didn’t feel so fab. And desire is what fuels our expansion.
Which means it’s actually a good thing when we run across something we don’t like. It means life is about to get even better!
That is, as long as we don’t stay stuck (i.e. focused) on the crappy problems. Since we get what we focus on, if I’m all panties-in-a-twist about what’s gone wrong, then guaranteed I’m creating more things going wrong.
But when I can appreciate the role this “contrast” has played, knowing that it’s leading to even better things (as long as I don’t overly dwell on the ‘problem’), then life can’t helpbut get better.
So that’s actually two reasons to make friends with what doesn’t seem very nice in life(losing a job, getting dumped, going broke, getting sick, etc.):
The first reason is that it’s what leads to things getting even better than they were before,
and the second reason is that if we don’t make some sort of peace with it, then we get stuck in it!
We NEED to know what we DON’T want in order for what we DO want to become more clear.
Being content is worse than having problems when it comes to your personal growth.
Take the time to asses and welcome your next problem and you might discover you knew how to find happiness within yourself all along.
What are some “problems” that you can look back on and be grateful that you had them?
