Unfortunately, concern. Happiness has been fleeting, at best, in my lifetime. Personal experience gas taught me that nothing good will last…

A humble feeling of gratitude.

It’s usually the thoughts or events before that give me the rush of happiness. I would say it’s contact with my sons, painting, being out with my friends or walking by the ocean.

That was fun, now comes the dip down to depression.

@MrGrimm888 By the same reasoning, nothing unpleasant will last either.

^Good point…

@TheVaal You made me realize something interesting. At least for me, nothing joyful or amazing has ever lasted even close to as long as pain or sadness.

@anniereborn I used to take a bad 20 or 30 minutes and call it a bad day. That led me to calling most days bad days. I think, for me at least pain seems to last longer because I was not as good at dealing with it. I have gotten better. Now, using the same logic, I can take a good 20 or 30 minutes and call it a good day. If I am really on point, and staying in the moment, each day is just that, a day.
