"If you make happiness your goal, then you're not going to get to it. The goal should be an interesting life."
So says Dorothy Rowe in a recent Guardian article, and I think she is right. I know that when I start aiming for happiness, I flounder and begin to resent intrusions. When I search out things that I find interesting, or simply wait for them to appear, then I begin to expand and possibilities open up like a fan.
'I will have an interesting day today' allows for endless permutations. I like that.
