Remembering Happiness

At some point in our lives, we have been happy. We have felt pleasure and joy. Consequently, we have blissful memories, memories which are unforgettable. They linger in our minds at all times, but you forget them. We keep them filed and alone and don’t revisit them unless something triggers that remembrance. As life moves on, we focus on the present and expect a better future. We label our past and consider it finished, and it becomes dusty in the compartmentalized storage of our minds. That past is sweet and bursting to be remembered. Just remembering that happiness will make you smile as you think of the feeling you once felt. You giggled because she said, “You look beautiful today” when you woke up. You smiled because he said, “Let me draw you, please” as you both sat naked on the bed kissing. You cried with laughter when she made a humorous face by puckering her lips and scrunching her nose. You grinned when he gave you a yellow tulip on a Tuesday, while talking about your favorite book. You know what memories I’m talking about. Those ones tucked inside your chunky brain blanket. Set them free! Take an excessive amount of pleasure in remembering. Smile by remembering that you have been happy … Then, you are happy remembering, and you will be happy again by just remembering. This is confusing, but it makes sense, I promise you. No matter what happens right now, remember, happiness awaits us all in the future by just remembering our past.

Here is a bit about me: Name is Wuisa! I’m a nonconformist nomad, adventurer and seeker of pleasure. A twenty-one-year-old explorer. In search of those petit unforgettable blissful moments in life. Born in Bogotá, Colombia in the Andes Mountains where fall-like weather is eternal. I’m in my last semester of college at Randolph College in vintage Lynchburg, Virginia, taking 20.5 academic credits. An Environmental Studies major with a minor in French. I love to stay busy and go for long distance runs in the forest. If sunbathing naked were a sport, I would have countless gold medals. I find Ayn Rand’s views on objectivism brilliant, and I think Chuck Palahniuk is a creative genius. I am obsessed with Frida Kahlo‘s paintings and Pablo Neruda’s Poems. In my spare time, I write poetry, cook and watch foreign films. I promise you this, one day I’m going to stop whatever I’m doing, buy a ticket to Paris, then buy a ridiculously expensive camera and sleep in a tent near the Eiffel Tower. Never forget inspiration is endless. Pas.


About Wuisa Fernanda

I’m writing for pleasure to share my ideas and thoughts to the world. I’m in my early 20’s and I want to accomplish a million extraordinary goals. I belief we all need a creative outlet; this is one of many that I have because limiting oneself to one thing is too ordinary. The world is filled with nonconformist nomads, adventurers and seeker of pleasure and I’m one of them. WE NEED TO SPEAK OUT! My truth is I seek those unforgettable blissful moments in life that inspire me. Never forget inspiration is endless. Life is what you make it, so go change something for the better, starting with yourself. Pas.
