and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.

our skepticism leaps to our defense.

than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.

Beyond that, the path to happiness
lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
