Are you living a wholesome life?

The video here makes the best argument for living a wholesome life that I've seen in a long time.

Wonderful.
Imagine what it will be like for the girl to see this video of her parents when she grows up.

Hi Ann,

I'm curious why you use the word "wholesome" to describe this video.

Very well done, almost like a part of a movie. I felt a lack of an emotional element though. Who are these people that always seem so happy and have a lot of stuff?

One reason: it didn't seem overly focused on work, which is wholesome compared to some people, including myself.

What is meant by "wholesome" and how does it differ being "well-rounded".

I think you've linked to the wrong video, which is about someone making a video of their pregnancy.

They are (and she in particular is) full of joy throughout the 9 months captured on the video. That's wonderful. Wholesome means "promoting health or well-being of mind or spirit". Who WOULDN'T think that a wholesome life is more likely to lead to happiness than an unwholesome one?

Yeah, well that's what a well-rounded life does for you. I have my work. But I also have my other activities as well, which mostly involve outdoor activities (and international travel when I have time). So, I have a reasonably happy life that is not always centered on my work (which is engineering) that gives me plenty of psychological "sunshine".

Again, I fail to see how this relates to the video, which is about someone's pregnancy. I think the link is to the wrong video.

I think this was really sappy (is that a real word?)

Wholesome as in whole as in circle of life as in reproduction as in evolutionary fitness. It's a matter of perception and reality. What's not to like? At least until we learn otherwise.

We should celebrate conception day, without which there would never be a birthday. There has developed -- and has been nurtured -- a distinct disconnect between conception and birth which needs to be remedied.
