    Just read a great book,’The Antidote’ by Oliver Burkeman that is about this subject. Kind of Seneca meets Buddha. I’m more the ‘preferences instead of expectations’ school of thought.

      I also read The Antidote. It still resonates. Learning that the pursuit of happiness may not be all it’s cracked up to be, somehow felt surprisingly right and completely counterintuitive.. which, now that I think about it.. makes it feel even more right.
