Happiest Day In my Life

 I was looking at participating in a writing contest where you write about the happiest day of your life.

Could you really tell someone what THE happiest day in your life has been?  For me there have been many.

The day I got my drivers’ license.  The birth of my children.  My marriage to husband #1, or was it #2?  Maybe it was to husband #3.  hmmm…

I can remember a day, walking through the woods.  It was summertime and the sky was blue, the sun was warm and the breeze raised just the slightest of  goose flesh on my arms.  I was young and in love.

Was this THE happiest day of my life?

Or was it when I was in the arms of a man that loved and adored me, feeling the highs that only come when real love is included with the lovemaking.

Happiness is fleeting.  Our lives are filled with ups and downs.  I’ve had countless of these moments.  To pick just one is impossible.

Happiness is dished out in tiny dessert dishes, not on serving platters.  It’s the tiny moments in life.  It’s the day your child learns to tie his shoes.  It’s getting your high school diploma.  It’s a sweet kiss from your spouse of 30 years.

If you are looking for Happiness to be this big piece of your life, you are going to be terribly disappointed.

The ups and downs in our lives IS our life.  The tiny Moments of happiness are the cherry on top.

Cherish the moments.  This is Happiness.

    Happiness like the flow of time is a continuum. The human mind conceives one speck in a cosmos of moments that help us make sense of the changing events in our lives.

    All the situations you descried in your article are highlighted moments that add dollops of joy to your existence.

    Remember that these moments are not isolated incidences in the fabric of your being but a patchwork organic fused into your DNA and synapses of your brain.

    Many times in life it pays to reminisce, appreciate and cherish all that has happened to us.

    It is more of a time for celebration than melancholy. 🙂
