Why not get away from it all and come visit... My Swiss Chalet ??
For in the moment that you smile, or better yet laugh from deep in your belly, you connect with your joy which is your best self. The suffering of moments past is history and you are free to experience what is right in front of you.
And why not keep an eye out for joy? It is all around you, if you are looking for it.
You can always come back to the suffering later.
