All posts tagged: "daily happy"

At some point in your life you realize that happiness is not an event or a goal or an achievement that you obtain. It is not an object. It is not contained in something. It is not granted, given, bought, won, or found. Happiness by those definitions is an illusion, and like any illusion something that might tease you from a distance, but something that will be impossible to acquire by chasing it. Instead, I think this #100happydays has a deeper point: happiness, whatever happiness is, can only be measured as a state of mind.

Happy Redacted

Nothing implied. Nothing over-stated. If you’ve been following along for the last couple months as I did that “Daily Happy” project, you may have noticed a couple things. I hit 50 entries and… well… kinda puttered out. It all neatly aligned with some sad and generally-unhappy moments (ie. a very sore back) which had a corresponding impact on my ability to (a) be very happy about that and more importantly (b) sit at a computer and write happy thoughts. So… hiatus? Pause? Or just the end? Here’s the thing: I’m feeling mostly better (from the back-thing, anyhow) and also I’ve got a great big other writing project coming down the pipes for June. Remember? 30 Posts in June? That’s happening again starting in about a week. So, take it how you will and read into it what you may (though there is nothing but overwhelming lack of time to be read into) but I’m going to call the happy thing over… for now… and maybe we’ll pull it out of the blogging bag of tricks again at some point in the future.
