Behind The Butter

Final Feta Friday

Welcome to the last Feta Friday! Is it just me, or did July FLY by? I can’t believe Sunday is August 1st! I love summer but am really looking forward to fall.

ATHENOS-Feta-Fridays-1023x768.jpg
Today’s deep thought-provoking-feta-winning question: are you happy?
It’s a simple question, really, but can be pretty tough to answer honestly. I’m not asking if you are happy in your life or anything…just today, July 30th 2010, are you happy? Today?
As always, a winner will be picked at random this evening and announced tomorrow morning.

    hmmm, maybe i am the only one with a negative answer so far, but today i am NOT happy. a friend of mine died a few days ago and her funeral is this weekend. so perhaps i have a good excuse? i generally look on the bright side of life, but today i need to just accept my unhappiness and grieve before i can move on. i’d rather let myself feel grief and sadness than push it away.

    I am definitely happy. Actually, I have joy. I am a devout Christian, and from my experiences, Biblical studies and growing relationship with the Lord, I know that the joy I have is not dependent on any thing or person, season, or time of day. The only two things constant in my life are time and Jesus. So, although there are things in my life that I am happy to have, and people in my life that I am happy to know, including my precious children, they are NOT the SOURCE of my joy. Because I’ve learned to depend on Him for my joy (happiness and gratefulness for the moments I have now) I’ll always have it. As a well-known gospel song goes β€œthe joy I have, the world didn’t give it, and the world can’t take it away!”

I’ve been stressed about what I’m going to do for work now that I’m done university, but yesterday I spent most of my time reading and just doing stuff I like to do. This morning, I feel SO happy and content with myself, and I think part of it is because I’ve decided that whatever is meant to happen will happen. πŸ™‚

    to me, happiness comes and goes and can depend on a lot of factors outside of your control, including things you may not be experiencing directly, but that could be going on in your loved ones’ lives. to me, joy is something that can never be taken away or lost despite life’s circumstances.

I’m so excited to see what happens next. Every moment counts and I’m so happy to be aware of that!

    Yes I am very happy. While there may be some emotional stress going on in my life at the moment, I have so many wonderful ways to de-stress. Be it running, yoga, bloggin’ (!!), or just talking things out with my amazing friends. It doesn’t get better than knowing that no matter what life throws your way, you will have the greatest support system to get you through. And that makes me so happy I just might cry!

    I think Happy and Content often get mixed up. Happy can be such a fleeting feeling…I can be happy to see someone, to find something, to have an experience. To be content, at least to me, is a more lingering emotion. To be content is to know I am where I need to be at this time in my life. When Happy (in the moment) and Content (with life) both happen at the same time, I think those are truly the sublime days. Since I am a teacher well into my summer break and relaxed and refreshed I can be Happy in the pure wonder of my day today and also be content with my life’s work and progress. So my answer is yes : ).

    I’m happy: It’s Friday. The weekend is coming. I love my husband. We’re moving into a house soon. The husband got a part-time job after 7 months of searching (so finally we have enough to “budget” and our finances will make sense). I’m eating brisket and Blue Bell tomorrow, and Dublin Dr Pepper if I can find it in Lubbock.

    I’m less than happy: I don’t enjoy my job. I have to work full time, thus never have time for anything I actually enjoy doing. My house is a wreck (again, with the time thing). The husband is out of town on business. After 7 months of searching the only job he could find was a student worker position on campus, which means he has to take more classes. So much for business degrees.

    I’m content: God is God and He provides everything we need. We are drawing closer to our friends, stronger in our church, and are following God without any idea of what’s going to happen in the next year. And it’s okay. πŸ™‚

    Yes, I am happy, but sometimes I feel like I have to keep reminding myself that I am happy. I just graduated college and am kind of in limbo, and I find myself looking forward to future instead of really enjoying my life right now.

    Actually, I look at it this way. There is happiness and there is joy.

    Am I “happy” at this particular moment in time? No, not really. I’m at work. The husband is out of town. My house is a wreck. It’s all circumstantial.

    But do I have joy? Yes. Joy surpasses circumstance. Joy is related to peace, and despite the economic struggles and other circumstantial stress, there is a sense of peace in my life that only come from God. I know that I have everything I need, and I am blessed to have as much as I do, even considering the fact that I qualify for government assistance. Happiness is temporary, but joy is peace and confidence beyond what this world can do to me. [Psalm 27:1-3, Psalm 56:3-4, Philippians 4:11-13, James 1:2-4, Jeremiah 29:11, Psalm 118:24, Psalm 16:8-11]. πŸ™‚

    I guess I will be one of the few with a mixed answer.

    I have many things to be happy about: Overall I have a great life, wonderful family and good friends. My husband and I are moving in about 6 weeks back East to a place that I am already in love with and out a place that I have hated. We have an amazing trip to Europe planned in about two months for our wedding anniversary.

    But today, I am emotionally spent and not happy. We have been trying to have a baby since the start of the year, and yesterday was yet another doctor’s appointment with less than stellar news and a line that I’m already tired of hearing – “I’m sorry the medication didn’t work this month…….”. I cried for most of last night.

    I constantly have to remind myself that God’s timing is always perfect.

    This is a seriously poignant question today!
    For the past almost 6 months, I have been going through the hardest time of my life. I got married last September, and we took our honeymoon a little belated in February. Five days after we returned from our trip, my husband of of just over 5 months up and left. I found out in the following weeks that he never wanted to get married (why would you date for ten years and then ask I say?) and he was having an affair; one he started 3 weeks before the wedding with a woman he met at his bachelor party. So, for most of the last 6 months, I have been going through a sticky divorce and have not been too happy.
    But (!), I have to say that today, I am very happy. I will be divorced in less than a month. Over the last week, I have chosen to celebrate the fact that he is no longer around, rather than be sad about it. In the past two months, I have started running and will be running my first half on Aug 14th. And I have started to make new friends, and am going out with one of them tonight to meet even more new friends. As much as the situation stinks, I am starting new life and am happy to be given the opportunity to do!

    No and Yes… No because I am more nervous than happy, but happy is a close second on the emotional scale right now… I have my first 5K tomorrow, and am freakin out a little bit! Not gonna lie! It’s the unknown that makes me nervous, but I am happy because I have my first 5K tomorrow!!! Woo Hoo!

    I am a little of both. My life seems to be finally getting back on the right track after fighting an injury that made me quit my job and sit on the couch for the last 9 months. I am starting to walk again and feel almost back to normal. However I have been living long distance from my husband for most of the year so far and that takes its toll. He has been there through this tough year, but it is hard being apart when I am finally back to myself. So I am getting happy again, but some days it hits me that I would do anything to be with him. So long story short, today has been tough…

    Wow, great question! And I must say that yes, I am happy! After a lot of soul searching this summer, I have stopped racing towards the “next thing” or dwelling in memories of what happened years ago. Instead I am learning how to enjoy what is happening at the present moment!

I’m happy today because I’m in a location I love, have the most wonderful, supportive friends and family, great opportunities in my near future and no longer have negative thoughts. I am finally happy.
    p.s. It really helped to sit for 5 minutes just smiling on my yoga matt with the lights and music/tv turned off. You should try it!

    I am happy but even more so I am joyful. I think joy is where you find it, and you make your own joy. You have to seek it out and change your attitude and find joy in everything you are doing. For example- i hate scrubbing the toilet, and i can either scrub the toilet and pout, or i can scrub the toilet and think about how i am serving my family and blessing them, and that brings me joy.

    Today, I was scared to get back on my road bike because it had been two and a half weeks since I’d done so. I thought my legs would be flimsy, my lungs on fire and my stomach in knots. I was afraid I would stop or throw up.

    Well, I totally underestimated my body and not only did I make up the two-mile climb without stopping, throwing up or crying, I did so with a SMILE.

    Today, I am happy because I have a strong body and an even stronger mind.

    I have to say that today, I honestly am happy. After having battled an eating disorder for over a year, many of my days are unhappy. Today, I ignored the mirror, I put on a pretty dress and went out with one of my best friends and MADE myself happy. We went to whole foods, and THAT made me happy. I had an amazing lunch and sampled a delicious array of new foods, and I bought some really exciting things, and THAT made me happy. And then, we got lost on the way home, and had to drive through a very sketchy area, where we almost drove the wrong way on a 1-way street, got hit by a truck and attacked by a mob of gang members –but none of those things happened to us (the almost did though) and the fact that I survived that and I can look back and laugh at it — THAT made me happy.

    Yes, today, I am happy. I am happy that my parents worked so hard so I don’t have to LIVE in that sketchy area, I’m happy that I am who I am, and I am happy that whole foods exists.

    Thank you,

    Happily can answer “YES!” to your question. Happy today and happy in general with my life. Married to my best friend, just wrapped up a solid week of marathon training, recently promoted, blessed with wonderful family and friends. I am a very lucky and blessed girl!

    It’s taken me a long time, but I think I’ve officially reached a time in my life where I am truly happy. I’ve thrown away the diets, negative thoughts and harsh criticism of my body. I’m slowly learning to not only accept but LOVE the person I am! Everybody is different and that in and of itself is beautiful. I’m learning to love myself more and more each day and that is true happiness.

    I am at an extremely good place in my life right now & I am very happy, but at this exact moment, I’m not as happy as I would be otherwise because I am missing a beloved pet who died this past Monday. I am happy in cherishing the memories I had with him though <3

    On the spectrum of happy to sad I am definitely on the happier side. However, I wouldn’t say that I had a fabulous day. It wasn’t terrible either. It was pretty blah. I’ve been in a rut lately and I am anxious about some good news that will hopefully be coming soon. I hate the waiting game.

    At the current moment, I’d say I’m not quite as happy has I could be, but making the best of it. Yesterday I had a skin graph in my mouth, and for a foodie, this is pure torture πŸ™ Everything I eat must be soft and mushy when all I really crave is crunchy, summery salad. Let’s just say I’ve had a healthy dose of oats, sweet potatoes, and milk shakes here recently. Overall though, I’m a pretty happy person!
