Today I have been trying to think about what happiness means to me. True pure happiness. Do I remember a time when I felt truly happy with no worries, anxiety or guilt? I'm not an unhappy person, usually I'm quite happy but to me, in order to be truly happy or blissful, I would have to be completely free of all of these. I don't think anyone over the age of 1 can ever be completely blissful. Maybe the Dalhai Lhama or truly spiritual people. Is this true? Will I only ever to be able to catch fleeting moments of happiness? Maybe this is better than being happy all of the time, I will appreciate it more. My hope is that the time between these fleeting moments becomes less as I let things go.
**These musings were prompted by this. I love that I am thinking hard about these things instead of just walking blindly through life**
