Philosophy for a Happy Life

I am fairly certain we all at some point or another, maybe even many times, have had thought what it was that made / make us happy.

This afternoon, I stumbled on a TED Talk by Sam Berns entitled “My philosophy for a happy life“.

At the age of 2 Sam, as you will have learned if you watch the talk I have embedded above, was diagnosed with Progeria, a rare, rapid aging disease.

  1. Be OK with what you ultimately can’t do, because there is so much you CAN do.
  2. Surround yourself with people you want to be around.
  3. Keep moving forward
  4. Never miss a party if you can help it

The Trap

Jan 1, ’14 – Just found the Full Movie on YouTube and am watching it on my TV via my Apple TV.

Oct 21, ’12 – The first time I watched “The Trap”, I was still in middle school (7th ~ 8th grade) and it was one of the best movie experiences. That memory has been with me. I have tried quite hard to watch it again, but without any success. Till a few years ago when I finally found it on Amazon (I think) – but on their UK site and the copy was not NTSC 😦

I still ordered it and got it shipped to my brother-in-laws place in London and later had him ship to to me. Needless to say it was not watchable – but I still did try to watch. Though I didn’t get to actually watch it – I did come to the conclusion that being able to watch it would most likely take away the beautiful memory of watching it the first time around that I still treasure.

If I am ever able to find a decent copy that I could watch I’ll most likely get it, but not watch it.
