At one of my yoga classes, our teacher always begins with a short talk about something she’s been thinking of or feeling and today it was about happiness. She asked, “why can’t we hold on to happiness? Why is it that we’ll always remember the worst part of our days but never the best?” And this really struck a chord with me. When something wonderful happens to us, we experience a surge of happiness but that excitement dies down over time. However, when something terrible happens, it almost feels like it gets bigger or worse over time.
