If you're happy and you know....

"The first thing to do to become happier, paradoxically, is to accept painful emotions, to accept them as a part of being alive. You know, there are two kinds of people who don’t experience painful emotions such as anxiety or disappointment, sadness, envy; two kinds of people who don’t experience these painful emotions. They are the psychopaths and the dead. So if we experience painful emotions at time, it’s actually a good sign. It means that we’re not a psychopath and we’re alive. The paradox is that when we give ourselves the permission to be human, the permission to experience the full gamut of human emotion. We open ourselves up to positive emotions as well,"
– Tal Ben-Shahar, Psychology Lecturer at Harvard

Hi B-muses

Hey Tiffany,

Thanks for your support. Reading comments from you really make my day! Yes, was fending off some issues/readers earlier so I "close shop" for a bit but I'm back in business....

Haven't had much time blogging these days but will try to blog as much as I can. Thank you :)
