A touchy story indeed! I do agree that the process of pursuing happiness is more important than the end results.
Well, if pursuit is the key to happiness, is this kind of happiness sustainable? And if so, what might it look like?
There’s an example that made it into the book last minute because I’d just watched a movie, a Canadian film called “One Week” about a guy who gets diagnosed with cancer. He gets on his motorcycle and rides west and comes across all kinds of people and places. At one point, he goes on a hike, gets lost and meets another hiker there, a woman. They end up camping around a fire and he asks her at one point, “If you knew you had one week to live what would you be doing?” And she says without any hesitation, “What I’m doing now.”
