Life doesn’t hand you happiness. Birth was never a guarantee that you would be happy. It meant that you had a chance at it. Having worked in mental health services for a number of years I came to have some understanding of biochemistry and how it affects our brains. I began to believe that if someone can be biochemically depressed then there must be others who can have a propensity to be happy. I honestly think I’m one of those people. I wake up, about 95% of the time, in a good mood, sometimes for absolutely no reason at all. I know that this is a blessing beyond blessings. And TRUST ME, I am very thankful. But the fact still remains that I’m left with my day. And what to do with it. Good or bad I have to strive to keep that happiness alive. Some days are WAY easier than others. Some days are impossible. But if I can EKE OUT even a smidgeon of happy I consider my day a success. Happiness is definitely an inside job that takes a heck of a lot of work to obtain and maintain. But dang, it’s worth it!
Well, I hope you all have a day where you find your joy!!!
