From a purely selfish point of view aside from adequately and comfortable surviving and succeeding in life, a fundamental goal is to be happy.
I remembered watching this television program an episode devoted to answering the question, “Are you happy?’

I just re-read a post by Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen, MD “Keeping a Heart Journal: It Works” (source: www.rachelremen.com/keeping-a-heart-journal).
It came to me after a person asked me what can they write about should they keep a journal.
I told them to SIT.

But does that mean you should take a martial art to experience mindfulness?
For some. Yes.
For others, it can be as simple as taking a quiet walk on a beach or pretending to be on a secluded planet you call your own.
No big deal, but I was a terrible writer; got C’s in grammar (and by the grace of God, may I add). Truth was that I couldn’t write a decent sentence to save my life; but despite this handicap, I collected a huge box of these note books and journals.
On occasion, I’d pick one up, and funny thing, some of these journals were over 30 years old and remembered when, where, and why I wrote on them.
It proved how important it was to keep a journal even if the contents were terribly embarrassing and illegible.
