Wow. Came in just handy as a very pragmatic and realistic way to try to handle this hard time in my life. Honestly think that this approach to the idea of happiness and how to achieve a state of peace,contentment or of whatever we conceive as happiness or relative happiness is going to help. Not sureI will be able to put it into practice often enough... yet until reading this I had not seen the matter this way and so I had slimmer chances to ever feel peace the way I was living. Great insight, great examples and funny enough, among my earliest memories of childhood is my wonder when watching with my mother the Nutcracker ballet! :)
