The space inbetween

I agree with my friend and colleague Jonathan Kopp, who wrote this:

"We act as if happiness is happiness. But it's not all one thing - there are different types of happiness.

In my experience, CONTENTMENT is a type of happiness that is underrated and even disparaged by our current culture. Every day, I see people in my office who really struggle to actually enjoy each new accomplishment or adventure. Their happiest moments are when they are *just* about to get there, and then the moment they do, they are lost to an anguished longing for the next, bigger thing.

This piece (linked below) says it well. I know that the word "mediocre" was used for effect , but I wish they hadn't. I think it undercuts the piece's strongest message.

Thanks to Claudia Bates Physioc for the pointer."
