Kai Ford Q n A


Siena Juhlin

Q: Is there anything you’re really passionate about?
A: Passionate… I’d say happiness. Strange answer, I know. Happiness is relative, unique and fluctuates between abundant and absent. When it’s found though, it’s a feeling like no other. Happiness is distinctly visual because it radiates from people and it’s absolutely infectious. I want to be able to cultivate my own happiness no matter my situation and share it with others. I observe happiness in the form of aspirations, dreams, and most often in art. I adore visiting festivals since happiness seems to permeate the air. All worries are forgotten and I obtain an “in the moment “ kind of feeling that can’t be replicated when I leave. Im passionate about finding out how to create this happiness for not only me, but for everybody, regardless of their background. [I want to make] them live in the moment and make the moment forever occupy their memory. Hopefully they’ll recall on it to bring themselves delight or contribute to the merriment of others. I’d say I’m passionate about that.
Q: What’s your definition of happiness?
A: A feeling of pleasure, contentment, or excitement that comes from an idea or action.
Q: Where do you think happiness mostly comes from?
A: I think it’s relative to each person. Normally, happiness comes from ideas like jokes, movies, dreams, etc. and partaking in the interests of the individual. It also comes from others who are happy. Being in the vicinity of happy people boosts your mood and assists in getting you excited for any event.
Q: What advice would you give for someone seeking happiness?
A: The hardest part is focusing on the brighter side of things because people seeking happiness have a lot going on. “If you look for the light, you can often find it. If you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see.” Searching is the first step and normally you’ll succeed in finding happiness if you truly look. Another way is surrounding yourself with positive people. People who look at the world with bright eyes and are portraying a happy outlook normally rub that off onto others. Finally, choose a happy place or moment, it can be made up or something you’ve done before. Whenever you feel sad, remember that time or thing and add details to the happy place. Add sounds, feelings, objects, anything to help further the idea. It’ll become a great way to release stress and hone in on a positive feeling.
Q: How do you plan to pursue your passion of happiness?
A: Honestly, I have no set plans on a large scale. I’m trying many new activities to see how different communities interact and enjoy their time. My goal is to travel with friends and find new stories and ways people enjoy life around the world and share them with a variety of people. I’ve also heard of people refurbishing buses into party buses and with that I could bring the joy of festivals and parties anywhere I wanted. People could hold concerts and group jam sessions where local artists come and share their work and talent. They’d be able to connect to bigger businesses and get the word out, raising individuals and communities with a collection of music, art, and general fun. Okay, I might be leaning toward travel and party buses.
