"It is only possible to live happily ever after on a daily basis."-- Margaret Bonanno
I have always been a planner. I plan each day, each week, each month. I even plan my happiness. But when those plans don't work out (as is so often the case), I'm lost.
What can I do to get them back on track, to get myself back on track?
A couple of weeks ago, I had come to the conclusion that I couldn't keep up this blog. Writing a blog every day seemed overwhelming. I was more than discouraged and ready to admit that I couldn't keep the promise I'd made to myself. After a couple of days without writing, I realized how much I had missed it.
I realized something even more important, though. I realized that I didn't have to write for a year, or a month, or even a week. I had only to write this day. It is the same with happiness. I have only to be happy for this day.
This I know for sure: happiness for a lifetime isn't possible; happiness for a day is.
