Do what makes you happy. Part 10

Do you have a favourite place? 

What place or memory of a place makes you happy? What memories can you recall from your childhood that give you that warm and fuzzy feeling? A comforting thought that you wished you could relive or pass on to your kids or partner.  

We all have those feeling and I feel that striving to have that special attachment to a place is important. For me, it was visiting my aunt and uncle’s 100-acre farm in the middle of nowhere. Being free as a child and having these long hot summer days wandering around in the forest and dirt roads.  

A car would pass at a rate of maybe 1 per hour and we never had to be careful crossing the roads. We had two dogs that would accompany us and they ran around without a leash. They were country dogs that slept outside no matter what the conditions were. They were covered in snow and made little mounds as the snow fell on them. Only their noses would be visible.  

Happy as kids and adults. 

Why is it that as we get older we grow grumpy and forget what it was like to be children? Why can we act like kids up to a certain age and then turn sour?  

Is it life experiences that kick us around so much that we do not know how we used to be? Is it that our happiness has been chased away by all the bad we have experienced. Do we get sick and tired of life and forget how we were jackasses as well at one point in life?  

We had to learn from our mistakes as much as our parents did. Our kids’ will, you’re kids will and their kids’ will. It’s the process of life. No matter what you say and what you do, we learn from experiences.  

Somehow we lost it. 

Look at the grumpy old men and women all over the world. We lost the meaning of fun because of the way the world has been shaped by our elders.  

Some people we knew as kids have turned out to be lying politicians. Some people we knew as kids have turned into alcoholics or even passed away. Their life has been turned upside down by trauma or circumstances. The happiness we shared as kids is so far buried in them that they do not have the means of finding it.  

How do we reset all this? 

I wish I had an answer. For me finding happiness is one thing and for you, it is another. However, I feel that going back to some old memories and chasing those feelings is where it is at. Getting to know you and your past is one way of reconnecting. 

It could be a favourite cottage you used to visit with family or a loved one. It could be a place… One of my favourite places is a diner we used to go to and to this day when I am in the area, I must visit it and eat there whether I am hungry or not.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
