Happiness becomes less the high-energy, totally-psyched experience of a teenager partying while his parents are out of town, and more the peaceful, relaxing experience of an overworked mom who's been dreaming of that hot bath all day. The latter isn't less "happy" than the former -- it's a different way of understanding what happiness is.

Amen to that!!!

Interesting quote, Matt.  And to Adam Rifkin-- LOL!  I've taken an online class w/ Heidi Halvorson & read her books.  I like her and her material.

If the rest of her material is this good then I want her on my reading list!
