    Here is what you need to know about happiness. We get pleasure from what we do for ourselves, but we get happiness from what we do for others.

    Once you understand that happiness and pleasure are in fact opposite of each other, you can be happy.

    Many of us may be somewhat happier after the 2018 midterms. And a LOT happier after the 2020 presidential election if Donald the Destroyer is voted out of office. We might not surpass Finland's happiness index, but maybe we could surpass our own. What a refreshing change.......
