Oh happy day

You'll see a new link on the right to the New York Times Happy Days blog. To me, the blog's reason for being is so awesome: "Happy Days is a discussion about the search for contentment in its many forms — economic, emotional, physical, spiritual — and the stories of those striving to come to terms with the lives they lead."

So often, instead of being content, I spend lots of time thinking about other people's lives and analyzing my own. Too much. Most of us do.

The most recent Happy Days entry is by Tim Krieder. It's unmarried take on marriage and a reflection on the very human condition of comparing one's self to others -- "the married and the single, the childless and parents, careerists and the stay-at-home." It is particularly poignant, equally hilarious, and scarily true.

Tomorrow's Friday. So here's to a "Happy Day," and here's hoping you find contentment in it.
