Are You Happy

Are You Happy

“Are you happy?”
“In all honesty? No. But I am curious –
I am curious in my sadness in my sadness,
and I am curious in my joy. I am everseeking, everfeeling.
I am in awe of the beautiful moments life give us,
and I am in awe of the difficult ones.
I am transfixed by grief, by growth.
It is all so stunning, so rich,
and I will never convince myself that
I cannot be somber, cannot be hurt, cannot be over-joyed.
I want to feel it all – I don’t want to cover it up or numb it.
So no, I am not happy.
I am open, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Hey! I love reading quotes on the internet because I feel they are the best way to express your feelings without saying much. When I am not poring over quotes, I love to bake and play with my adorable pit bull, Max.View Author posts
