happy

Ah, Martin Sexton….sounds like you have a handle on “happy”.

Good for you.

I’m pretty happy most of the time….and that’s a good thing….but sometimes that Norwegian thing must kick in and I’m kind of morose.

Must be something genetic that might let me stare out into some raging fjord and withstand another hard winter….

it might just be the lack of sleep.

But most of the time, in spite of myself, I’m pretty happy….and when I’m not happy, I really try to fight my way back up to the surface.

It’s a funny thing that I’d expect to be happy….I don’t think that I remember anyone ever saying that happiness was a birthright or something that was supposed to be ever-present.

Sometimes we just muddle through….push through the deepest muck┬áto get to the clear water on the other side.

I don’t know where we suspected that something was wrong if we weren’t happy 24/7.

We just aren’t happy “right now”….that’s no guarantee that it won’t swing back around again.

Listen to the lyrics of this song…..it’s a little roadmap….lots of simple pleasures that combine to let the happiness invade….a sneak attack that might stick around for a while if we don’t overthink things and get in our own way.

Happiness is always a good possibility.
