Bouts of Happiness

Sometimes happiness sticks around for an hour. Sometimes it hangs out for days at a time.

The last couple of weeks have been meh. Not for any particular reason; just a series of days strung together where I felt off-kilter. Each morning I would wake up feeling a muddle of mixed emotions and think, "Still? We're still doing this? Okay..." and go about my day.

But I woke up this morning and immediately felt the shift in my mood. I queued up my February playlist on Spotfiy, added a handful of new songs, and danced about my room while I got ready for work.

So while it's not my job to figure out why there's such an ebb and flow to happiness, it is my responsibility to embrace it, no matter how long it sticks around.
