I don’t want to mislead you into thinking that a human being can be euphoric 24/7. That is not how the emotional landscape works; in fact, extreme prolonged emotions in either direction require professional help. Sometimes, however life is just hard. Sadness, anger, irritability, frustration, disgruntlement—these feelings are also part of human nature. Legitimate circumstances can trigger these reactions as can our own thoughts when we choose to dwell on painful situations beyond the point where we should have moved on.  Even while in the throes of your challenges, however,  will come a momentary glimpse of relief  to reassure you that  nothing lasts forever, and that you have the capacity to rise above your obstacles and get back to focusing on the joyful aspects of your life, like kid with a Good Humor popsicle.
