Welcome to The Muses of Happiness!

These musings are about a journey back to happiness.  Three years ago, I began a two-year trek through the wilds of a toxic workplace.  By the end of that time, I was in depression and suffering from acute anxiety attacks.  While I did things I liked and loved, the enjoyment of them was dulled by the unhappiness of my day-to-day life.   You know you’re really depressed when even during all-mind-consuming activities (such as making music), you are brooding over what makes you anxious.
