If the sun is shining, stand in it- yes, yes, yes. Happy times are great, but happy times pass- they have to- because time passes. The pursuit of happiness is more elusive; it is life-long, and it is not goal-centred. What you are pursuing is meaning- a meaningful life… There are times when it will go so wrong that you will be barely alive, and times when you realise that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else’s terms.
Now are the days, of humblest prayer,When consciences to God lie bare,And mercy most delights to spare.Oh hearken when we cry.Now is the season, wisely long,Of sadder thought and graver song,When ailing souls grow well and strong.Oh hearken when we cry.The feast of penance! Oh so bright,With true conversion’s heavenly light,Like sunrise after stormy night!Oh hearken when we cry.Oh happy time of blessed tears,Of surer hopes, of chast’ning fears,Undoing all our evil years.Oh hearken when we cry.Chastise us with Thy fear;Yet, Father! in the multitudeOf Thy compassions, hear!
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
People’s lives change. To keep all your old friends is like keeping all your old clothes — pretty soon your closet is so jammed and everything so crushed you can’t find anything to wear. Help these friends when they need you; bless the years and happy times when you meant a lot to each other, but try not to have the guilts if new people mean more to you now.
A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
Sometimes I heard voices muttering in my head, and a lot of the time the world seemed to smolder around its edges. but I was in a little better physical shape every day, I was getting my looks back, and my spirits were rising, and this was all in all a happy time for me. All these weirdos, and me getting a little better right in the midst of them. I had never known, never even imagined for a heartbeat, that there might be a place for people like us.
When you are not separate from the creative process, time ceases to exist. You might start to feel tired and suddenly realize that much time has passed. It isn’t necessarily a happy time – and may be very difficult to start if it is a job or an obligation. But if’ you start with all the concrete needs and proceed in a thorough way – the creative process will take over and you will forget whether it is work or play. Working in the here and now is one of the most uncontaminated ways to work.
