Happiness... (Originally posted 7/8/14)

Like Miss Hannigan said in Annie: "Do I hear happiness in here?" The orphans were living in a nightmare, but they made their own fun & happiness. My life is NOT really a nightmare - the typical human thing; but, I do go through bad moods & good moods. Suh-prize!!! EVERYONE does - but it's what you CHOOSE to do with it, that makes ALL the difference in the world!!! Believe me, Connie's got a dark side; & when it comes, it comes!!! But I don't just sit there. It may seem like it to some people; but I work/talk/journal/keep moving forward!!! Then, before you know it, am back to my annoyingly cheerful self!!! The afore-mentioned "Essence That is ME!!! The point I'm trying to make, is that you don't make yourself happy; you CHOOSE to work through the crap to GET to the happiness. Sometimes you DO have to "grin & bear it", or "smile through the pain"; but if you keep current with your feelings & keep it real, those dark times WILL get less & less; & last shorter & shorter times. A good support system is helpful - AND MINE IS AWESOME!!! I'm happy, that in over 20 years of the "healing process", I've FINALLY been paying it forward, also. Have a good day & be safe...
