There’s contentment, which is about being okay with who you are medium- to long-term. And then there’s happiness, little bursts of random, positive energy — these bursts mostly come from random connections in our life! A talk that went well, a comment a reader gave us on our article, finding a dollar on the ground, etc. Even when you’re content, truly carrying this self you like so much to the outside, aka seeking opportunities like this, engaging with people, creating art and sharing it, whatever form it takes, makes those little moments more likely to happen more often!
