I'm learning that there are all different levels and types of happiness. For example, there's hyper happy, mellow happy, content happy, deliciously tired happy, i-just-met-a-goal happy, musical happy.... the list goes on and on and on.
I don't want to jinx this in anyway, but I'm the best kind of happy right now. I'm content/peacefully happy. There are lots of factors involved: my family is doing well despite all odds, teaching is going well, I was able to grieve and get over all the stuff that happened at home this summer, that new chapter I mentioned is amazing. Again, the list goes on and on, but basically, I'm just in a really good place right now. I'm content, I'm busy, I feel loved, I'm having fun, I know I'm in the right place. I feel easily inspired. I'm happy.
And on that note of reflection and gratitude, I'm headed out for my evening walk under the big, Montana Sky, quietly hoping for a little stress release from school (good stress) and a Montana Moment. It's really cold out there, so If I don't come back... send out the troupes! (Don't worry. I won't actually be that far from my house; I'll be fine.)
Happy Monday! :)
