I just wanted to share with you all right now that I feel utterly content and quite happy at this precise moment in my life. This is a rarity for me in my life seeing as how I'm sometimes happy and almost never content.

Such an unalterable hope as I feel now I have rarely experienced thus far into my life- that is mostly stemming from my stressors decreasing and going to college in the fall, which is approaching seemingly slowly yet steadily. It is as if I could live an eternal life within this one moment and I would be happy. I even feel like writing fiction- something I haven't felt like doing in 2-3 years.

But anyways- I just thought that I would share that with you guys this evening.

There are ways and means, but short term only.

Alas Phanto that particular feeling was still only short term- it abated during the night's sleep. Nonetheless I find that while it was nice- I'm more glad I experienced it and it is now gone than to have never had that particular combination of thoughts and ideas and emotions last night.

How wonderful for you, Shawshank. I know exactly how you feel because I feel the same way! Things are going so well for me that sometime I feel like doing a Julie Andrews!

[Group Hug] <-- that really is the perfect smilie for this.

I have also found myself content of late. I find it much better than occasional paroxysms of joy. The calm joy of contentment is pleasant and not stressful. [Smile]

I would love to have what all you are on.

What I mean to say is I'm not content and I'm sort of in a rut as to how I'm going to fix it.

Good vibes would be appreciated. [Smile]

I find my mood is highly dependent upon the weather and also on gatherings of family and/or friends. Lately I've been very happy, and coincidentally we've been having mostly wonderful weather, and I've gotten to hang out with lots of people I love, and I've been giving gifts and growing flowers and making art. That-all is what I'm on!

A slight interesting turn of my feelings of contentment here of late is my wish to write. Now many times I feel like writing- but most of the times to write down my pseudo-philosophical notions that twitch in my brain. But this I have been wishing to write some fiction- something I thought I had moved beyond- since I don't think fiction writing is really for me.

Odd. Must think about, maybe write about.

[An observation: The ad at the bottom of this thread currently reads "Learn about bipolar disorder. Click here!"]

--j_k, who isn't sure what to make of that

Very odd- some of my family is bipolar too. (Two members of my immediate family who live in my house).
