The Time to be Happy is Now

Why now?  Because now is the only time you’ve got right now.  Unless you have an actual tragedy pressing down on you in the next five minutes, unhappiness a lot of times is fear of the future.  Well, a lot of us have that–have you seen America lately?–but right now, in this moment, how are you doing?   If it’s pretty good or even just okay, wallow in it.   

Right now, in this moment, it’s a rainy Sunday, I have three dogs who are annoyed they can’t go out (they can, they just aren’t fans of unnecessary wetness), I have a book to write I really like, and there’s a pancake mix from Krissie and pecans in the kitchen.  I’m happy.

How’s by you?
