I Was Thinking About...

The things I would like to have in life to be happy. And that's assuming if I'd recognize true happiness when it does come. And as I pondered the things and experiences I thought would bring happiness, I kept going back to what is happiness. I wrote down some things, like, being stuck in traffic but a favorite song comes on the radio. Or giving someone spot on directions. My kids are a constant well of happiness but even they have their grey days. Even waffles, hot, with lots of butter and syrup. A new lover, I wrote, but that's not happiness. Its not the person but the conquest that makes me happy. I'm trying to remain hopeful because I have some tough road to cover in the next few months. These are my happy thoughts.

"Its not the person but the conquest that makes me happy."

I completely agree. Good luck in the next few months.
