Planning to be happy
aspect of imagining the future proves to be troublesome for men, though
generally we are totally unaware of it. Men seem to have this amazing tendency
to arrange their lives around future expectations of happiness. Think about
this for a moment. Doesn’t this tendency of always contemplating a future life
of happiness actually reveal something about our lives in the present—that we
are unfulfilled and not content?
When we are not content, looking towards the future and hoping that it will be more satisfying than our lives today is only natural. We are convinced that one day we will be happy, yet our happiness always seems to remain just beyond the horizon.
