    Today I choose to allow myself to be happy for small things. I am worth it. I would want a friend like me. Being lonely does not mean I cannot find joy and happiness on this journey of life!

    I am striving to keep in mind happiness is not a destination but a journey. I refuse to be angry at myself because I am not. I believe I can he happy even for a moment today. In that celebration perhaps I can be happy twice tomorrow

    108 Steps Of Happiness
    I’m happy most of the time. I’m happy that I can even say that truthfully. Recently, a friend of mine revealed to me that he had a nickname for me – “Irish Spring”. I was a bit nonplussed to be som…

    Strange goal, emotions kinda happen. I do my best to understand them and appreciate all of them. Fear, anger, happiness, sadness . . . all apart of the rich fabric of life. Some of deepest most profound moments have come when I was feeling sad.

    Spent a good chunk of my life fighting emotions, trying not to feel. WOW! That was soooo hard, what a waste of time. Emotions come and then they go if you let them. Like anything the more you fight the harder it fights back. This is as true with emotions as it is with a raccoon.

    I honestly think there is some danger in 'being' an emotion. To me, I experience feelings and have thoughts. I am not either, I am the watcher of these things. A teacher of mine expressed that we must always strive to witness the watcher. That is our center. So to focus on being just one emotion . . . 'happy' . . . seems very far from that center and missing out on many things.

    For example many here suffer from depression, which having been down that road, I now see is 'being sad.' Hence the danger of being an emotion. We are so much more than our emotions.

    BUT I think perhaps I am being too literal once again, and what this goal is all about is: have a life that encourages happiness to occur on more frequent basis. Which I am all for!

    So be grateful, eat well, exercise, socialize, get out a do things alone or with others. Focus on being present and appreciating where you are and what you are doing and viola, happiness! Easier said than done I know, but we can do it.

      @Airos You raise some good points - about "being" an emotion. I wonder if there's a word that's more persistent than feelings (which can be so fleeting...). Perhaps it might be joy or joyfulness?
      I've felt this at some level even at the same time as being angry, sad, and even happy.
      Your thoughts?
