    Wouldn't it be cool if we could trade our

    Maybe "Find" Is the Wrong Word

    I forget the actual origin of my belief, but I remember being taught at some point that happiness is not something you can obtain. It's not a commodity that can be bought or bartered. It's not something you can win in a contest. It's not some kind of prize. Rather, it is...

    It's hard to settle for second best

    when you've always been first priority to someone else. A competitive nature is what keeps you around, you can't stand not to win. Putting happiness on the line just to come out on top again.
