Sunday Seesaw

Sunday Seesaw

Here in the midst of the holiday season, it is unfortunately true that many people find this to be the un-happiest time of the year. This is due largely to expectations. It is the jolly holiday - we are supposed to be, and expected to be - really happy, exceptionally so, at this time of the year. But for many, this adds just another pressure to an already stress filled month, and happiness becomes more elusive than ever.

So take a step back.  Take a deep breath. Happiness is never constant and is more like the high side of a seesaw ride.  It doesn’t last and shouldn’t be an expectation. High seesaw points usually come when they are least expected.

What we need to focus on is not whether we are happy, but whether we are content. The majority of time on a seesaw is spent enjoying the movement of the ride in between the highs and the lows.  And being launched into the high point or slammed into the low point is not where we will be most of the time.

So are you content this holiday season?  Take another deep breath.  Enjoy the ride.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #48:  
“Contentment is a seesaw.”
