Happy Lately?

February 7, 2010

Sooo, since my last post, I’ve been concerned about my blog having a dark aura (for lack of a better word). I’ve been trying to think of something positive to share.

Dictionary.com defines “happy” as: delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing; characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy.

When was the last time I was happy? My happy moments comes in brief spurts, mostly. I had one this week when I was complimented at a temporary job assignment. I had one yesterday when I realized people were reading my blog. I had another one yesterday when I got to see my beautiful 8-month-old nephew.

This is a good lesson. So much of my time is spent thinking about how miserable I am… all the time, miserable. NO – not all the time. I do have good moments. I can tuck them away, and pull them out of my memory when I need to smile.



  1. Wow! Didn’t know about this but very excited to read it. I know your conversational voice so well-it will be very interesting to read your inner- voice and get to know that without your bossy sister interrupting you! Way to go!

  2. Yeah, it’s very weird to be able to hold both thoughts in your head: Life is beautiful, life is crap. I have no words of advice as I endure the same thing. Writing helps, don’t you think? And talking to some one who understands. So if that works, you know how to reach me. Thanks for reading and for the link. I’ve added yours to mine as well.
    Be well, Marco

    • Writing really does help. I had forgotten that.
