Happiness?????


Guest

670 views

I woke up at 4 a.m. this morning, courtesy of Petey the Pom. As soon as I woke up, the mind kicked into overdrive. The thoughts weren't good, positive, peaceful ones, nah, just the opposite.

Yesterday, was a good peaceful happy day. So my question I am trying to solve is this. Is happiness only a state of mind? Is happiness so fragile, that it books off at the first sign of a negative thought? Is it so tentative, that it is a constant focus to keep it in place? I don't seem to ever remember happiness being such a chore. Which that could simply be explained that I was never truely happy before, because I never stopped and examined who I was or how I was.

It is all interesting from a detached stand point. But something I no longer feel like examining. Maybe all the blog readers have some thoughts on happiness and if they find it fickle?

 

I hope it doesn't still smell in here, I sprayed it, I was on moldy page two! I also scraped all the mold off of my blog, no science experiments coming from my blog.

OK, I just found happiness again..... it is 6:30 a.m., I'm the only one here and I just ran naked through the the forums. Being the virtual world, I could run. /Yup, it was freeing and fun, that brings happiness around.

I read someplace about happiness and it makes perfect sense though I will wait for mom's input, but happiness is state of mind, and in life every episode has positive twist to it ok now I forgot beautiful line itslomething about every enconter could be bad it depends on 90% on our attitude and 10% on situation in life

P.S. Pam, I've been meaning to tell you that I found bit of info. a few days ago that said you should expect that it will take one month per year that you were married to move through all the emotional stages of getting through a divorce.

Hi Pam

 

Wow mum that's deep!!! Only a month per year? Don't you believe it. A breakup is more like a death but worse.

 

Pam Happiness to me is "Wherever a laugh goes happiness follows".

 

I will try to attach a joke that Bette of Frank sent me (can't remember which) lol_2.gif to fill up your happiness cup eh.

 

Subject: Young Boy!!!!!

 

A young boy had just gotten his driver's permit and inquired of his father, a preacher, if they could discuss his use of the family car. His father took him into his study and said to the boy, "I'll make a deal with you, son. You bring your grades up from that 'C' to a 'B' average, study your Bible, get your long, shaggy hair cut..... and we'll talk about the car." Well, the boy thought about that for a moment, and decided that he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it. After about six weeks, the boy came back and again asked his father! about using the car. Again, they went to the study, where his father said, "Son, I've been real proud of you. You've brought your grades up, and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, and participating a lot more in the Bible study class on Sunday morning. But, I'm still disappointed, since you haven't gotten your hair cut." The young man paused a moment, and then said, "You know Dad, I've been think."

ng about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had Long hair... and there's even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair." His father replied, "You're right, son. Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?"

 

 

Have a "HAPPY DAY" Pam

PAM,

 

SOMETIMES I JUST "PUT ON A HAPPY FACE'. THEN I START TO BELIEVE I'M HAPPY, SO MY DEMEANOR CHANGES. LIKE YESTERDAY, AFTER BEING DOG-TIRED, MY GRANDSON ASKED ME WHY THE LOBSTER WOULDN'T SHARE HIS FRENCH FRIES? BECAUSE HE'S SHELLFISH. OK, HE'S ONLY SIX.
