Sometimes the things that bring the most happiness can unravel into the things that only bring sadness. But I guess that’s how it goes. Pain and pleasure make the same coin. For instance, someone I once loved is now someone I hold in very lowly terms, in fact, I almost despise him. Or one day I found happiness in eating healthy and maintaining a strict diet, then I found sadness when I couldn’t indulge at my favorite restaurant. Tis a strange and beautiful paradox. 8 months ago

To understand happiness I have to consider what makes me unhappy. This ranges from misplacing my____(glasses, keys, remote, left shoe, right shoe, credit card, batteries, important form, time,etc.) to Spilling my drink on the way to work to missing the last train to feeling guilty for feeling jealous. If I can look objectively at these moments where it feels like bliss has left the body then maybe I can find a way to change em, prevent em, reduce em, or accept em for being a part of me. a very narotic, frustrating part of me. 8 months ago
During any moment of stress, frustration, or crisis, we have the chance to ask ourselves to either be Mad and angered or happy. I’ve decided to choose happiness. When the harsh winter wind blows its best to brace it with a warm scarf and smile. To be gentle with understanding love for others. So often, I find myself running off metal lists of critique about other people but what if I chose to list things about them that make me happy and then share it with them. Life may be sweeter. indeed. 8 months ago
