Hitchhiking to Happiness Monday September 30, 2019


I need you; you need me.

Oh, and that's a good thing... a REALLY good thing.

That's a BIG lesson to learn in life because for some daft reason we've been sold a lie. The erroneous interpretation is that needing other people is a sign of weakness. It isn't. It defines what it means to be human.

We are tribal. We are family. We are strong together, and weak apart.

We need 'difference'. Different viewpoints. Different skills. Different insights.

I like the metaphor of hitchhiking. A hitchhiker knows where they want to get to. What they don't have is the capability to get there quickly enough. They need help to accelerate their achievement of their dreams, goals, and ambitions. They need other people's capabilities, resources, and willingness to help.

I want to get to a town called, "Happiness."

I've heard it's a great place where you aren't judged for the journey you've taken to get there. You aren't judged for what you wear. You aren't judged for the company you keep. You aren't judged for the way you are - not age, not race, not gender, not education, not nationality.

I might get there, eventually...

...but I know for certain I can get there faster in good company – with you.

I wanted to take this opportunity to say, "Thank You!" to everybody who has commented over the years I've been writing for Moodscope. Every comment has flowed out from the best of intentions, and every comment has moved us forwards together.

We are tribe. We are family. We are Moodscope.

Of course, as a Hitchhiker, it is really helpful to put your desired destination clearly on a card while you are thumbing a lift by the roadside. I'm off to 'Happiness'.

I suspect 'Happiness' is a place that's a long way away, but that's where I'd like to go. Who'd like to go there with me? Anyone travelling my way?

Here's the flipside. I've got a great vehicle that could give YOU a lift. I know how to organise my thinking, I'm pretty good at time management, and I'm awesome at Social Media. Am I bragging? No. I'm advertising the direction I'm going in.

I want you to know that I'm here for you, and if I can do anything to make your journey to Happiness easier, faster, and more enjoyable, I'd love to give you a lift.

What can I do for you?
