Day 288 by ErinBird Day 288 by ErinBird
Name: Happiness is ~ 288.366

"Happiness is not about being stupid - it's enjoying the little things ."

For some reason this quote pratically sums up the word 'YOLO' (you only live once) . don't be stupid and be like "YOLO" whenever you want to do something wild and huge , just understand it's just the small things in life that make you happy .

There is a lovely person called ~sumgie1 who told me this quote . I really like it and I wanted to use it as a photo . I need to find a new way of doing quotes .. I've done the paper on the cork board about 3 or 4 times ..

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

I think that what the quote says is that we have to learn to see the little details at the same way we look at a paint or any other artwork, thinking of it will ruin it so you have to just enjoy it!

Ok, I read your explanation and I still don't follow. How are you suggesting that 'you only live once' is based in stupidity?

You don't think YOLO is stupid ? Maybe it may just be me and my generation , but I know a lot of people who get drunk under the legal age and they're all like YOLO . It's like , they think that being happy means being wild and doing something stupid that they'll probably regret the next , and just because they were think YOLO at the time . By the way , the term "YOLO" was made by this american singer called Drake -.-

Um, no. I don't think 'you only live once' is stupid. I believe there's a misconception here. At least in my mind, it means 'don't knock it till you've tried', or more simply 'anything once'. You know, variety is the spice of life, step outside your comfort zone, that sort of business. Just because people misuse an ideal as an excuse for their idiocy does not mean the ideal is a bad thing.

Omg I don't mean the actual phrase "you only live once" is stupid . But I think the word "YOLO" is . I agree with everything you just said and I too go out my confort zone because of it . But in like April last year an american singer called 'Drake' made up these lyrics of "YOLO" and then EVERY SINGLE PERSON SAID IT . It was so annoying and then the actual phrase just lost it's meaning . I'm not disagreeing with the actual meaning behind "you only live one" I'm only disagreeing with the word "YOLO" because it's stupid .

i agree to the "enjoy the little things" part
but together it sounds like when someone says it must be a nicer life when this person is stupid the person isn't stupid just more happy ^^
i know this wasn't the point but the rison why i only agree to this part is
as better your understandmend is so more you see of the bad things... but also of the good things... but my level of it is enough to see that maaaaany things go down special with humans and blabla bla
i don't wanna whine around shortly said ... when you see what the "stuipd" persons don't see or better... don't really understand/notice it's sometimes very cruel
so they come up with "the stupid ones must be happy" ok some ppl just say it couse they are emotional but i think i said what i meant^^

but ye it also makes easyer to understand the happy things the weather a simply smile the life of a flower or just a peaceful moment and so far^^

nice text and also nice way to picture it

I sort of see it like this. It's a response to people who think that happy people are stupid and that happiness comes from not caring. Intellect is not the point here and happiness comes from caring - from being able to appreciate. And there's nothing grand going on every day so, if one is able to appreciate the minor things, one can love life. And, at least as an example, one can imagine how simple things can suddenly bring great value to one who is lacking them - which is more or less a situation I'm in... :)

Also, thanks, you're so sweet. :hug:

You could try doing quotes according to the associations they give you. For example, I associate this quote with golden fields of wheat. :D It may add a sort of an additional intuitive/emotional dimension to the piece.

Maybe you could try photo manipulation if you sometimes can't find the right things to photograph. :)
