We have happy days, we have not so happy days.
And some of those sad days are crushing and horrible.
What if you could trade a fantastically happy day to avoid having a horrible sad day?
Would you do it?
If yes, would you keep doing it, so you ended up in a kind of blurry middle without any happy or sad?
I wouldn’t do it.
That little thought experiment helps me realise the transience of emotions when I am feeling like %^$&!
It reminds me of the wisdom “This too shall pass” (sometimes attributed to King Solomon).
How are you feeling today compared with yesterday? Last week? Last month? Last year?
What does that mean about how you will be feeling tomorrow? Next week? Next month? Next year?
My best wishes, Paul
