Life is an infinite loop. I get the sense that nothing is ever over. The hope for things to be over so we can sit and be happy about is is an illusion.
Knowing this there's only 2 choices. Either accept and enjoy every moment as it comes, depending on the situation, or resist and suffer through the experienced rotations.
As I become more aware I choose to accept and on many occasions I choose to bring joy to the moment. It's worth the effort but it's not always easy. Getting identified with my ego and its desire for suffering is strong, but all I have to do is notice this and the ego ceases to exist. It's amazing when it happens, only if for a moment.
