Die Happy

Check out the guy in the pink shirt.

He’s in the moment, he’s one with the universe, he is totally elated and about ready to die happy… It’s more than enthusiasm. It’s more than glee. Feel it!

Whether it’s the first time you ate a Twinkie (Oh. So. Amazing.) or two whole weeks in Vegas (24 hour buffets! Bellagio Fountains! The Deuce!) Joy is joy – wherever you find it.

When’s the last time you felt overwhelmingly, heart-palpitatingly, NBA-guy-MPGingly on top of the world? Total joy – where do you find it?

Keep kicking ass!

  1. I think he’s trying to swallow, have you seen a seal eat? He’s definately got a herring down the back of his throat, one more shake of the body and it’s curtains for that fish.

  2. @Rachel – super yay 🙂 I can’t wait to see what happens for you next!

    @Fickle Cattle – sooo cool! And if you get to yell “I want the truth!” Tom-Cruise-style, I’m totally jealous 🙂
    …Scratch that, you get to say “I passed the Bar”, I’m still totally jealous 🙂

    @Kari – how great are babies*?
    *Especially other people’s!!!

  3. @Steph – I know what you mean, a feeling can totally take over a city! And sports are great for doing that 🙂

    @Sylvia – Congratulations!

    @Ibdiamond – Contentment is an awesome feeling – and after 9 months? Pffoar!!!! That must be some serious satisfaction!

    @Jenny – Glee, joy, and triumph, you’re so right! Now, if we could just bottle it… 🙂

    @Julie – How cool to find joy at the dinner table (along with gravy!)

  4. Mine would be along the lines of Sylvia’s, I suppose. I feel lucky to feel joy every day–there are moments with my kids where it’s so profound that tears spring to my eyes. But that guy felt…glee mixed in with the joy. And triumph. Those 3 things are a powerful combo. Thanks for posting.
