Quitting Your Job, Sailing Away... Is it always rosey?
Ah, if it's happiness you're looking for, well forget it. We are who we are. Cruising won't change that. As Yoda says in response to Luke's question, what will I find in there? "Only what you take with you."
Things, experiences, money ... research has shown none of these do much to change one's happiness level. There is a quick hit (either positive or negative) but then most of us return to our 'normal' state. Relationships, cognitive therapy, meditation and drugs have the most impacts on long term happiness levels.
I don't cruise to be happy. I cruise to be free(er).
P.S, congrats on the engine fix. I bet that felt good solving that one.
