I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness. More specifically, the pursuit of happiness and how it can be this all-encompassing marker of success.

Being human is complex.

And so often we can feel so many feelings at the same time.

I’m happy that I reached this goal.

But I’m a little annoyed because I haven’t eaten in a few hours

And I feel a few pangs of guilt for having to flake on meeting with my friends

Lately, I’ve been trying to embrace all of those feelings. Instead of projecting this image of always having it together, I’d prefer to be the living embodiment of all of these little nuances.
