A COMPLIMENT…

Today I ran into an old friend. We were closer some 8 years ago, but she was a person who knew me well way back when. Let’s just say she knew me when I was at my darkest. She is now married and expecting her first baby in three months. I haven’t seen her for at least two years.

I saw her today at work and I hugged her and we talked briefly. As I was walking away, she said, “how are you?” and I said, “great,” and she said:

“You look happy.”

That means a lot considering where I was (unmistakably miserable). I suppose I am “happy,” and I know it’s because I choose to be. There’s not much more to say than that.

    You are happy because you have so much good in you. : )

    You’re so right. Happiness really is a decision, isn’t it? There are people who are miserable even when everything in their lives seem perfect; at the other end of the spectrum are those inviduals who, despite harrowing circumstances and losses, are happy. I guess I fall somewhere in between, though most of the time I feel pretty content.
