Sometimes happy

And then again some days are happy days. As with my post yesterday, being happy or being sad is absolutely no refection or for that matter indication of me level of gratitude.

For so long I believed the lie that emotional sobriety was indicated by a steady almost lifeless state, flat lining if you will. I thought that this was a direct result of a soul filled with gratitude. I now know this to be a pile of proverbial shit.

Emotional sobriety is a living moving thing. It involves good days and bad days alike. The gratitude comes from seeing this and rolling with it no matter what. Today I've mostly been happy.
