And it was rather difficult for me, because I was brought up to think life was hard, and that success means lots of suffering, otherwise you won't deserve it. So I spent the better half of the evening thinking what exactly it is that brings me joy. And then I realized they are really simple things, some costing nothing at all:
- being in peaceful places with trees and grass
- watching thought-provoking movies
- reading books
- writing stories
- telling people they'll be okay
When really, all it takes to enjoy life is to take it easy. Nobody's after you.
