Just a couple of thoughts today -- When I say that something makes me happy does that mean that I need that thing in order to be happy? Is it more appropriate to say that something "brings me happiness?" Is the difference between the two just a matter of semantics? And if something makes me happy then wouldn't my automatic response be to want to keep that thing and to be afraid to lose it? I know when you are afraid to lose something it means that you are attached to it. So when something makes me happy do I automatically become attached to it? If so, then that leads me to wonder -- is it wrong for something to make me happy?
