One can not sustain happiness all of the time. (Excerpt from The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet)

This book I am reading has some very good points in it. A person truly cannot hope to be happy every moment of the day. It is nearly impossible to hold that level of emotion for any length of time. It normally wanes into contentment. I was always annoyed when people would say, “Be happy!” because I knew you couldn’t sustain it. So keep that in mind when society is pushing you to always be happy. You don’t have to! It is ok to have sad times or angry times. That is normal and 100% acceptable. It is your actions when you are in any emotion that defines you, not the actual emotion.

Sunday Mediations

I have had a rough go of things lately. Even though I try I do take things personally. I think we are all the same in that. It’s hard not to get frustrated with the injustice of the world. However, it won’t do us any good if we focus on these unchangeable things. So to counteract the negative we must be extra positive. Bring good things into our lives isn’t easy. So stop and smell the roses, or any flower you see. Take in the shapes of the clouds and ripples on the water. Be awed by the different shades of colors on the cars in your gridlock. Just look positively and it will change your whole day. I know it is a struggle for me so we must be supportive of each other!
