A very sweet and dear friend of mine asked me recently what I thought about happiness and sadness, and why I believe happiness should over-way sadness...
That's a very tough and difficult question to answer, as all know being sad is one of the worst feelings one can have...but being happy is one of the best and most rewarding feelings.
Happiness and sadness run parallel to each other, it never fails when one stops to take a rest the other one tends to take up the slack...you can not escape either one of them.
I've learned through this journey that happiness sneaks up through a door you didn't know you left open, a door that brought in the sadness.... Happiness comes at just the right moments in your life. Happiness comes from accepting your troubles and appreciating your journey. Happiness can come wherever you are in your life!
I know at times sadness seems as though it completely takes over, I know this feeling all too well unfortunately...but thankfully throughout our trails God has given me the patience and understanding to know that you can and are allowed to be happy as well!
I can't tell you not to be sad, it's human nature to be sad, and cry--that makes us normal. I can however tell you that if you can try to find comfort in the sadness that God is with you and has his arms around you at that very moment and is walking with you side by side during whatever situation you are in, then that can help you become happy during your trails.
