It's not actually natural to be happy and smile all the time.
The idea that happiness is meant to be a constant is a very recent invention! The greeks certainly didn't believe it, nor did anyone in the feudal ages.
It is simply not how your brain works, even if it were able and willing to supply the correct chemicals to your brain constantly then you would fairly quickly become acclimatised to it and will assume you aren't happy.

And paradoxically, people worrying about how they aren't constantly happy actively works to mean that they won't be happy.
It is a goal that is impossible to achieve and thus they are always disappointed and assume they are doing something wrong.
"Being content with life right now" is pretty much the best state you can aspire to.

Well yeah, life without ups and downs can get dreadfully dull, that's for sure. However, since I was plagued by bullying in elementary school, I believe I'm well within my natural rights to be elated for at least a couple more years. :U (a grand down to go with the huge up that is uni, gymnasium was great but dayum bro I haven't been this happy with life since fuggin kindergarten)

Anyhoo, Denmark is a flat country in every way. Worst thing nature can throw at you is what, a little thunderstorm? A fox? A really mean hill? A few degrees of frost? In other words, not much. But as long as you don't expect any extremes at all, it's fine. Norway and Sweden has much more to offer in that department, but they have silly laws about alcohol. :P (either that or Denmark is really lenient, because the full power of beer unlocks already at the age of 16, except on tap which requires 18 years)

Flat? We have flat. But at least half your country isn't below sea level. :grin:
Silly dutchies, living like snorkels.

Eh. At least your area doesn't make half of it's money by having old people look at leaves and pompous ♥♥♥holes snogging up your mountains. The worst thing about Vermont is everybody else who comes into it. I dislike tourists so.

You hit the nail on the head, Natti.

Where my dad came from, depending on which metal was in demand at the local forgeworks, it would either snow pink or blue. When ALL of the metal was in demand, it snowed black.
