I was talking to a friend today about some recent changes in her life. She told me she still had some sad days but was overall doing well. She said much with a few words; she said, “This is life.”
It reminded me of something I was contemplating on the day before…
We, as humans, are not meant to be “happy” always. Just as we are not meant to be “sad” always. We are meant to be content with our lives, and moments of happiness and sadness, like anything else, come and go.
But I think Denis Leary said it best:
“Happiness comes in small doses folks. It’s a cigarette butt, or a chocolate chip cookie or a five second orgasm… You come, you smoke the butt you eat the cookie you go to bed, get up in next and go to fucking work… That is it. End of fucking list! ”
Yeah, me and Denis got this life thing nailed!
