No. I know I have alot to be thankful for, and I'm very aware that it could be worse. I have to live apart from my husband (have been for 4 years) for another 10 months. Hes currently deployed and we rarely get to talk. There is drama in my family and I work in a very hostile work environment (currently interviewing for another position). I'm try very hard to remove the heavy stressors from my life. I know i need to make myself happy, that no one can do it for me, but there are things that I need to be rid of before I can do that.

I was stressed this morning from too much time with my arguing boys, but I stood in a sunny window, closed my eyes and breathed deeply, releasing the tension. I know we can CHOOSE to be happy if we want it bad enough. I changed the negative thoughts in my head to thankful, positive ones, and it worked. Now I'd say I'm pretty happy. emoticon

I am really not happy right now. I did say a little prayer before I got up (something I am focusing on doing beginning yesterday) for help in being positive and choosing to be happy. I learned from a great friend of mine that we choose to be happy. I'm trying to do that and I am using SparkPeople to help me work toward my goal of being truly happy again in the future. I have a lot to be happy about, healthy children, a warm place to sleep, a great job and so on, but the space I'm in right now is just not happy for me and I'm choosing to take the steps to change that. That I am happy for.

I've been reading a really good book lately and it talks about our relationships between our brains and our emotions. The theory being that we can decide to be happy if that is truly what we want. Not to say that everyone is happy every day, but overall we can change out thoughts, feelings and behaviours and therefore effect our happiness.

I hope you all find your happiness.

Am I happy? the truth?

Right now, no. Not really.

There have been far worse times than now, but it's the those times that I never want to forget because it's those memories that help me stay focussed on my food, exercise and daily good habits and routines and it's sticking to those that will get me through to happier times ahead (I hope).

Fear can be a good motivator and right now I suppose I've come back to Spark to make sure I keep hold of all the great stuff I've had going now for 3 or 4 years.

Am moving into a little flat on my own in a month and I'm really looking forward to having my own space and a new start - for now - am focussing on good daily stuff.

This exact second... Chopin's Nocturne in B. That's another thing keeping me on track - my classical music.

OK - that's it.

Big hug to anyone else out there who is going through challenging times.

At this very moment, the most I can say is, I am content.

I am not a person who thinks happiness is a permanent thing. Happiness is a temporary emotion, much like sadness, pain, regret, etc. You don't feel it all the time, which makes it even more unique and worthwhile when you do. Without making room for the other emotions, you would never really know if you were actually happy.

So. For today, I am content. I am up late, just finished a 1/2 mile on my treadmill, had a wonderful night with friends and will be seeing my family after a few hours of sleep.

love & junk
