That reminds me of something else:

There is no heroic poem in the world but is at bottom a biography, the life of a man; also, it may be said there is no life of a man, faithfully recorded, but is a heroic poem of its sort, rhymed or unrhymed.
Thomas Carlyle in essay on Sir Walter Scott

To me, that says that it's not the moment that is happy or un, but the totality of one's life. That's kinda what I hold on to, at times -- although it's very easy to fall into the pit of "my entire life [emulates a Hoover] and always will -- so I'm a miserable loser now, and always will be..."

Hope that's helpful -- and not just, you know, a non-sequitor...
