This weekend I’ll be attending John Curtin Weekend for the tenth year in a row. While volunteering is something that looks good on a resume or enables you to go places cheaply, these aren’t the reasons as to why I do it.
I’m not an expert on happiness, but I believe there is one thing that happiness is not – pleasure.
To me, they are different feelings. Don’t get me wrong, I think they are related, but one thing I see time and time again is people justifying unhealthy or destructive choices by saying “Well it makes me happy, so therefore I will continue to do it.”
