Why Are We Happy?

It seems counterintuitive that people who have something tragic wrong with them are as happy as someone who has everything going right in life. Gilbert challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our “psychological immune system” lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned. Synthetic happiness is every bit as meaningful and enduring than natural happiness. Synthetic happiness or choosing happiness has the same effects, has the same health benefits, and makes us feel just as good as natural happiness. If something is out of our control, but affects us, we make the most out of it even if that is not the dream path you wanted, but we adjust.

Ederly Animals

It seems counterintuitive that a photographer, Isa Leshko takes pictures of ederly animals, but does not take pictures of her parents that are ederly and are being taken care of. Leshko was visiting family property and fell in love and was memorized with this old horse named Pete. This was therapy for her, but it also turned into a big project for her that was a great journey. When she takes pictures, she wants it to seem that the animal is happier and less in pain. Pictures are just pictures, but each one presents something more than being just a picture. When these animals pass away their owners look at those pictures and just see happiness and know their animal was happy and shows joy.

Pizza Hut at the Pyramids 

It seems counterintuitive that people travel to explore and see things that were very popular way back when, but in the video right across from the Great Sphinx and the Pyramids of Khafre is a city with commercial places such as pizza hut and kfc. The Great Sphinx of Giza is a limestone statue of a reclining sphinx, a mythical creature with the head of a human, and the body of a lion. The Pyramid of Khafre is the second-largest pyramid in the Giza Plateau. Having those companies right across from there great agent sights is kind of disrespectful to history and shows what America is turning into and how it expanded there.
