Missed Giftshopportunities

This is a great article from Medium on how to find more happiness in life. I think we’re all searching for our bliss in one way or another, or we’re attempting to mask things that aren’t giving us joy.

It makes logical sense that if you spend the majority of your time working towards something, you never fully enjoy and appreciate the present.

It would be nice if people were as kind to other people as they often are to dogs, right?

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out, especially with the show’s ever increasing viewer base, and hundreds of thousands of signatures on a White House petition.
