Moods are weird things
Like how do we explain what we are feeling.
We don’t say our brain is releasing dopamine, but we feel the effects and say we are happy
so where exactly is that change between the chemical and a smile?
I think it is awareness
When we take a moment to feel, we can have experiences.
When we take a moment to slow down
Turn off the screen
And instead focus on the distractions around us
Sitting here on this porch eating jello while I watch the sky change into its pajamas, I am happy.
