Friend sent me an essay on happiness, from site on Medium, or connected to medium.

Pursuit…. That’s part of the problem.  Just becoming the state you seek, that’s an answer.

A run would bring me happiness, but even if I don’t head out for my targeted 4 miles the happy state that I’m adopting, one resistant to negative notes and frowns and some people that just want clouds always around, will be here.  No negotiation… this new happy hue is what I’m to do.
