True Happiness

True Happiness

Recently, I discovered myself, so to say, and I found true happiness, I believe. I think that people achieve true happiness by discovering who they are, what they like best to do and how to manage this combination with their daily work. I realize that this experience may take a life time and that many will not achieve true happiness. Discovering my happiness, my passion, it was not an easy task to do and I had to look deeply into my innerself.



I went "Under water" as beautifully featured and sung by Delerium.


Ifelt a little awkward to learn to know myself again, at the age of 53, and I wondered if I was becoming a little "Crazy". Do you know who you are ?


"Under water" and "Crazy" are elements of architecture problem and solution analysis where passion may be involved.


Passion, according to me, can be best experienced by music, a good example being "Soul Sacrifice" by Santana.


This experience made me just create this little poem:


The skin is hot
The body is tired
The mind is not.


I was urged to find my happiness as, since a few months, I did not enjoy my work that much anymore. And I was lucky to find it, even realizing that my sense of happiness may change in the future as all things in life may change.

The reasoning above implies that we need to assess and develop architects early in their career. If they are (or become) true architects they may find true happiness and develop the solutions that our clients require.

Happiness is wanting what you already have and it’s within you right now. Happiness is a choice. True happiness can be found in living true to yourself, doing your best and having no regrets.
Happiness and true joy are largely found in the little things, the simple pleasures in life. (AP Tol)

Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably
Ann Clinic Rules

good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
