Here we go with year number 37 and this year I choose to be happy.
It sounds a little strange to say that out loud like I can go to the happy store and buy some off the shelf. I've been thinking about this for a few weeks after someone said to me that another person couldn't make you happy (i.e. a love interest); they could only enhance your happiness. I'm sure that I've heard that sentiment a hundred times over in different ways and from different sources, but this time it finally clicked something in my head. Sometimes you just have to be in the right place in your life to finally understand something.
I am sure there will be bumps along the way, and times where happy is the furthest thing from my mind, but I am going to focus on the good things. At least I'm going to try.
UPDATE:Took a self portrait today to mark #37.
