I think we need to stop thinking that other people or certain things will make us happy for only we can do that. Hoping that the next great job or partner will fulfill us completely is a fallacy and those of who have lived long enough have learned that valuable lesson first hand. The secret to life might just be to be open to experiences with a peaceful inside which is that much more amenable to being pleasantly surprised while taking the shocks that inevitably come and deal with them with a certain grace.

In that sense, there is nothing that can reward more than the perspective which weighs value with a discretionary eye; one that can see through the gloss that society tries to paint over things. The idea might be not to be cynical but instead to get to the root of value with more discernment.
