If you’re happy and you know it…

Posted Friday January 25, 2013

So this morning a few questions crossed my mind.

 “Will I ever be truly happy again?” 

“Is it OK to be happy?”

“What will/does happy feel like?”

I think every woman or man in my situation has or will ask themself these questions as some point and time.  As I worked through my grief at Amanda the Panda it was interesting to me how my “Pie chart of emotion” changed in 8 weeks.  At the beginning a good 60% of my emotion was anger.  By the end of the 8 weeks that 60% was now occupied by acceptance and happiness.  This change makes me smile but still confuses me from time to time.  I still put sadness after 8 weeks and the part that gets me is how can I be sad AND happy at the same time.  My only thought is that I need to let go of the guilt I feel for thinking about happiness.

After thinking about this all day my answers are the following;

Yes, Yes and I guess I will know when it happens.
