Hello, my name is Tanya, and I’m a happiness immunity survivor.
What is this disease? It’s the inability to recognize happiness unless it is over the top, wham-bam-thank-you ma’am, fan-freaking-tastic.
Everyone talks about wanting to be happy. I’ve noticed when we do – we speak of thrilling, momentous events: falling in love, winning the lottery and so forth. I did too. The ordinary no longer satisfied my thirst for happiness. Nope, I needed a big gulp of extraordinary to feel truly happy.
So does that mean only over-the-top moments can bring true happiness? Yikes, I hope not.
