Today was a good day, was yours?

What is happiness?
Is it the absence of sadness?
The ability to feel joy?
If you are able to feel joy does that automatically mean you are happy even if you aren't experiencing that feeling?
And does the absence of sadness really constitute happiness?

Sometimes you just need to let out whats on your mind, even if no one hears it, just writing about it can make you feel better. I believe in the power of words, and just because im not Charlie from The Perks of being a Wallflower, it doesn't mean i can't use this as my Dear Friend letter. (For those of you who are reading this and haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend it, it may change you, it may not, but its worth finding out.)

Somedays you have days that change you, for what ever reason, something is different. The day you realise you now longer care about that ex who hurt you, the moment you see that someone who was once a stranger now means something to you. Often its a book or a song or a movie that you turn to that suddenly makes it all okay.

I have various things in my life that bring me happiness and that bring me sadness. My moment today was listening to covers of my favourite songs, it was like hearing the song for the first time all over again.
