On Being Happy

As June comes to an end, I'm thinking my own little Happiness Project should not. Although making sure I blogged every day was more difficult than I expected, this whole month of posts has been very rewarding. It made me really take a look at my daily life to figure out "What makes me happy?"

I knew the basics, my family and friends but it was fun to discover the little things that put a smile on my face every day.

When my friends are down in the dumps, I remind them that you've got the right to choose to be happy. It's a choice. Every day. You can wake up and choose to be miserable or choose to be happy. And yes, sometimes I need to remind myself of that.

So, I vow to continue the happy posts. Random as they may be, they are just as therapeutic. Perhaps not every day but enough to keep the happy going.

And let's hope that July is 1/2 the happy that June was.

Damn straight, sister. That sounds like a grand philosophy for me to subscribe to this summer as well. A woman has a right to choose, after all. And I choose happiness, dammit! (I Am Woman Hear Me Roar is playing in the background of this speech)
