Recently I was approached and asked, “Why so happy?” At first I was taken back by the question and I was almost mad. Why would someone question why someone is happy? Are they trying to remove happiness, so that that happy person becomes as sad as the questioner? Is the questioner sad and trying to find a way to be happy? As if they can not find it themselves?
I stopped all the questioning…and thought. It is amazing what shutting off the internal voices asking all the questions does. It releases the body to act. It was at this point I realized that the answer was, “Why not so happy? because its boring.” Being unhappy is not about being depressed or sad or in a bad mood, it is in fact being bored silly and maybe even a member of the walking dead.
Remember the last time you truly lived! Maybe it was 30 years ago when you hit the game winning home run in little league…maybe it was the day of your wedding 20 years ago…maybe it was the day you graduated college 10 years ago…maybe it was the day you found happiness. Make it today and everyday forward!
Good luck….email me if you are having trouble finding it.
