The Concept of Happiness
This post is pretty simple- I think I can legitimately say I'm overall happy for the first time in about a year. I'm not happy because I won the lottery, or because Im buying 8 Cadillacs and 4 Ferraris. I'm happy because I love my friends, I love my boyfriend, I'm about to graduate highschool and move on to bigger and greater things, and life is moving in a very optimistic route at the moment. I hope my optimism and happiness is able to rub off on some of my friends going through a hard time. I know life can be overwhelming at times but thats why we all have friends and family- not to share a few good times and then forget they even exist- but to be there during the good and the bad. No suffering lasts a life time unless you allow it to. We are as happy as we allow ourselves to be, and some of us don't even realize it.
