Few people are that deliriously happy all the time. I'm not sure we're meant to be. Or maybe there are a few lucky euthymic souls with just the right brain chemistry.

For most of us, I think happiness is relative. I think I'll always be relatively dysthmic. But I also think contentment and satisfaction are easier goals than happiness. Not physical contentment and satisfaction, necessarily, but emotional and spiritual contentment and satisfaction.

I won't get there until I start doing better at work, and stop spending and eating so much.
