Now consider your present life. It’s a compromise between happy and sad. We can’t realistically expect to be elated 100% of the time. Nor do any of us wish to be extremely sad all the time. The challenge is to recognize those elated moments and cherish them. Likewise, sad moments need not dominate our lives. Both happiness and sadness are extreme emotions. Life happens. Your challenge is to mitigate both extreme emotions, know that they will come, and navigate towards that first horizontal line you drew. That middle line that we shall now label contentment.
