Daily Prompt: Happily Ever After

“And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?

I am living happily ever after. Twenty plus years with the woman who promised to always be there is just one of the components of my great life. I also have the love of two great kids, a boy and a girl who make my life so full. It is a smaller family than some, but certainly enough to fill my home with so much love I could not help but be happy.

I am also blessed to be part of a great church. On an average Sunday we will have around one hundred or so in attendance, but out of that number I know almost all by their first name. During my recent illness there is always someone asking about my progress, which again is a component of love that drives everyone’s happiness.

The job I have is the best in my life. I get to work with computers all day long, which is what I wanted from the beginning of my college experience. The amount of interaction I have with other computer people keeps me growing and relevant. The job also allows me the freedom to work remotely which is a convenience I never had in my other jobs.

Another big component of the happiness quotient I enjoy right now is the ability to express myself through my writing. I have tried this on several websites, including Helium, Hubpages and now here on WordPress. I find the most interaction here and enjoy so much reading others work and commenting on their posts.

Is there other things that could add to my happiness? Of course. I hope eventually to welcome a son-in-law and daughter-in-law to our family. Eventually I hope to have grand children to spoil. Of course, every writer eventually wants to be published. But those things are rewards yet to come and to hinge my happiness on them would be folly.

My happily ever after is in progress today. I hope yours is as well. If it is not then perhaps you can reexamine the things you see as making you unhappy and find more happiness in the other great things going in your life.
