Yesterday, I participated in tweets of a trending tag for “#WhyImUnhappyIn5Words“. I posted an eight-part entry for this topic, all parts referring to the issue discussed in this post.

Afterward, I felt like I should at least partly counteract the negativity by posting reasons to be happy. I came up with a few, but not an entire eight.

The four reasons #WhyImHappyIn5Words are:

  1. My new job isn’t toxic.
  2. I have some great friends.
  3. Finally writing, even if slowly.
  4. I’m part of the #WritingCommunity.

All of these reasons are good, valid basis for happiness in my life. One & two are not to be underestimated in their significance at all! But as a writer who is trying to complete several works for publication, I must say three & four can’t be beaten.

To be finally writing, after all this time — even if I’m doing it at a snail’s pace — is an achievement in itself. It’s one of those small victories which inspires me to keep moving forward. I just have to remind myself on a daily basis that slow progress is still progress.

The #WritingCommunity on Twitter is absolutely amazing as well. I stumbled upon them in February and was just blown away by the support and camaraderie of these thousands of amazing people. It was like finding a home and a long-lost family that I didn’t even know I was missing. I truly think number three would have fallen by the wayside if not for the love and support of number four.

So I guess the entire point of this post was:

  1. Yay, I’m writing!; and
  2. Thank you, #WritingCommunity!
