Where is happiness? Is it a tangible thing that we can hold onto, or is it merely an emotion that comes and goes as it pleases? Many people spend their lives chasing after happiness, thinking that if they could just find the right person or the right job or the right amount of money, then they would finally be happy. But the truth is that happiness is an elusive goal. It’s always on the verge of slipping away, and no matter how hard we try to grasp it, it always seems to elude our reach.
Perhaps the reason why happiness is so difficult to find is because it’s not something that we can go out and obtain. It’s not something that someone else can give to us. Happiness is something that we have to create for ourselves. It’s something that we have to seek within ourselves. And once we realize this, then perhaps we can finally begin to create our own happiness.
I didn’t write any of that above. I merely selected it, or perhaps “curated” is the right word. The title, “Where Is Happiness?” was taken from a Sam Harris podcast I intend to listen to in full tomorrow. I just wanted to see what creative output Midjourney would generate with the prompt. I then decided to feed the title into Inferkit and let it riff a bit. I hit the “generate” button four times.
I settled on this output: “Where is happiness? It’s on the verge of slipping away. Is it yours? No. Is it someone else’s? They claim it as well. Happiness is fleeting. The quicker you realize this, the easier it will be for you to keep it.” I then fed that into the “Paragraph Generator” template at Jasper.ai and copied one of the three results it gave me with only two edits to single words.
