Happy For a Week straight. That is the 'prompt'. Forget it.
Happiness is definitely a subject I think about a lot. ALOT.
I think the elusive happiness is what everyone is after! My life has been filled with MOMENTS of happiness. I'm pretty fortunate.
I was never planning to get married and have a family. It's rather funny really. I never believed in 'marriage' when I was younger, thought it was the stupidest concept. I'm very common sense oriented... What sense does it make to claim you will be ONLY interested in the SAME ONE person forever?? That's what I thought. And years of history and divorced friends have proven I had a point.... Funny though, and a bit ridiculous.... I'm still married! Things have changed a million times, don't think for a second that this marriage has been blissful for 30 years...NOT even close. But interestingly, it has shown me certain things. He's a decent guy. I think if one of the people in a marriage isn't a decent guy... its more likely to fail. I think our children occupied so many of our years that we didn't notice them passing. We were so in awe of our children and so interested in their personalities, we never really thought much about ourselves. Interesting to look back and realize this. Now our kids are grown and gone or going... and that is how it should be...But it presents an interesting scenario. One in which I wonder.... what now? What do I want to do? What will make me happy? (Where is my Happiness for a week?)
I think I'm a fairly happy person. maybe. kind of. somewhat. in Spring and Summer.
I have millions of Happy things that have happened or are in my life! I see beautiful sights every day. I should be happy. There is no reason I shouldn't. ( WTF is wrong with me?) What even is it that would make me feel HAPPY for a WEEK straight??
Maybe no one is that kind of happy. Maybe happiness truly is fleeting. a minute. a while. a day.
It's a trick question...When were you happy for a week straight? I've been happy for years. But a WEEK straight??? dunno.
Anyway, Life marches on. Time waits for no one. It's a real cliché, that whole LIVE for TODAY thing. But it's also accurate as hell.
I'm happy daily. ..for moments perhaps, but still. At least once a day. That's pretty good, I think.
I am trying to do things these days that I think bring me satisfaction and happiness. Other people play a large part in this... i.e. : friends. I think Friends are keys to happiness..as well as Creativity. Excercise. Health. and Money. I have 3.5 out of the 5. So I can't complain. Just think, though... if everyone was happy. The world would be sane.
