So this is the beginning of happiness...
I love the movie The Hours, by Michael Cunningham. This is one of my favorite quotes from it. I watched it, again, today. For some reason this movie always reminds me we are not as alone as we may think, and ALL people carry some type of burden with them. I just want to try for a while to remember a part of this quote..."It never occurred to me it wasn't the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then."
Why do I want to remember this, you might ask? So that I can remember that happiness is not some destination that is far off and often unreachable, so I can remember to take the little moments and make big memories out of them. So even if for a brief moment in time I feel good...I can feel good and I can remember what it is like, in the moment, and later when I am not feeling so good. I want to start trying to make the happy outweigh the not so happy.
(By the way if you read my blog often, as I do...haha, would you not think I am really UP and then down in my emotions? This is why I have questioned whether or not I might be bipolar...who knows!)
