Greeting: Love and Happiness
Love and Happiness.
Happiness and love.
One thing’s for sure. They’re related.
One might say intertwined.
But does happiness lead to love?
Or is it that love leads to happiness?
And then, what kind of love is it? . . . To feel loved? To love others? To love thyself?
We don’t have to choose.
But is one dependent on the other?
Do you have to love yourself before you can love others?
Does feeling loved precede both (and begin at birth)?
Ultimately, we’re all capable of loving and feeling love from others.
With lovers. With friends. And even with strangers.
And we are all capable of being happy ☺
And to those who can’t or don’t feel loved, the remedy is giving it.
And to my love [Alice],
Happy birthday ☺
Love and happiness,
Alan B. Havis and Alice B. McGinty
