Waiting For That Thing To Make Me Happy

Just in case anyone was wondering, happiness is not a passive experience.

Despite the pandemic, I am about as happy as I have ever been in my life. If anyone told me when I was 22 that I would feel the way I do today, I would not have believed them. But I’m here. I have a life and I’m not really sure what to do except to keep doing what I’m doing. I write this not to gloat or to brag. I write this to demonstrate that happiness as a state of being is within the realm of possibilities. Even during a pandemic.
