I’m joining the Gypsy Mama and her Five Minute Fridays. Rules are: for only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?
Remember a time when you were happy. Obscenely happy.
When was that? How long has it been since you been so happy that tears flow from your eyes and laughter escapes your mouth in such force that you cannot breathe? Do you remember?
It takes me a while. I don’t think I’ve been that happy for several months. I did take a vacation back in July where I found some laughter and genuine happiness, but before that? I can’t really say. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve not been unhappy per say, I just struggle to remember a time in the last year that I’ve been overjoyed. In fact, turning to my memories and remembering details from the past few years has actually been a source of sadness lately. I miss people who were once staples in my life. I miss my friends. I miss my Grandma. I miss my Papa. But, I remember the good times I shared with them. I remember thier smiles, their laughter, their words. And that tides me over until I can find my smile. my laughter. my happiness.
Thanks to Gypsy Mama for use of the button.
