I'm SO happy that you are curious enough to ask WHY! :-)
One of the countries I was lucky enough to experience during my teens was Singapore. I went to high school there for 5 years. It's there that the colourfulness of the Chinese culture grew on me. I have been wearing a gold pendant of the Chinese "Double Happiness" character practically ever since. A character often used for weddings. 1 + 1 = 2; two similar figures, put together to form one. So simple, so logical.
For me Double Happiness represents being happy in life generally. It is about the past, the present and the future, and how it is my goal, or choice even, to be happy and content with all of it. The past has given me the present, the present creates the future. Actually Triple Happiness then! ;)
I had the character tattooed on me the day I turned 30. Having it done meant a lot to me and it has become an inherent part of me, daily reminding me of this intention.
Evidently, the whole point of being aware of your past, present and future, and realising that you can influence how you perceive and live it, is also how you can actually 'enjoy the journey' of it all!
And that is exactly what I hope RITTRSHAUS will inspire you to do.
Thanks for listening:)
