Started to read Flow, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Woof, what a name. It is interesting, but I don’t know if I am going to like it. Basically, he is saying that we can control if we are happy or not. Despite having said this before to people, something just strikes me odd about it.
Happiness. Such an elusive goal. Ethan is often unhappy. How can we help him to be happier?
I described to him what being ‘in the zone’ means when you are playing. When you can not miss and everything you do feels just right. Everything is so new to him. It is so funny to have to explain words in the middle of explaining happiness.
What makes you happy? How often do you do it? Could you do it more? Ooops, gotta run. Have a great weekend!
