I'm in a ridiculously good mood this morning. What is this?!
That exact thought crossed my mind as I was making my coffee this morning. I just woke up in a good mood for no reason in particular and that was enough to make me wonder why I was so gosh-darned happy in the first place. (Did I just say gosh-darned?)
Anyway. I have this habit of questioning my emotions. Like there has to be a solid reason behind every single one or else I'm stupid for feeling it.
And usually, whenever I'm feeling a positive emotion like happiness or excitement, I instinctively tell myself that it won't last forever and that I might as well enjoy it while it lasts---which doesn't exactly help me enjoy it.
So today I've decided to put my foot down on this silly habit. If I'm happy, then I'm going to be happy, damn it. If I'm excited, I'm going to be excited. Why should there have to be a reason? Why should I have to justify it?
This rule should apply to EVERY emotion. Don't question it or stuff it down. JUST FEEL IT.
If you're happy, let yourself be happy. Don't let that nasty little voice in your head tell you that you have no reason to be or that you don't deserve to be.
I deserve to feel happy. And so do you.
