Today, it suddenly hit me: I don’t think I’ve written about Seattle yet. About a year into this blog about my favorite subject, namely, getting happy, and I haven’t said anything about how happy I am to live in the best city in the entire world.
(I mean, okay, I haven’t been to Europe yet, but does anywhere in Europe have as much coffee and rain and as many nerds? I doubt it.)
Well, the silence ends today.
No, I’m not going to go on and on about how much I love “all the conveniences” of being in a big city and “there’s always so much to do.”
I’m just going to say: I love it because I love it, and so, this is where I am.
And where you love is where you should be, too.
I do recommend Seattle, though.
Seattle is the new Chicago for coolness, after all.
Of course, if you’re reading this and you’re familiar with this city, I know what you’re thinking: What about all the traffic?
My answer: Well, of course there’s a lot of traffic. There are a lot of people who like being here.
Are you in the city you love? Does being there make you happy? Write and let me know!
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
