I Choose Happiness.
2013 has been a rough year for me - lots of angst and internal struggle. I had a long talk with myself this weekend and made one conscious decision: I Choose Happiness. There is much in my life that I cannot change and I have to find a way to avoid sinking into the bog of resentment. I am feeling very empowered by the self-care I have undertaken in the past couple months and I can envision even more as life unfolds, which gives me hope and a feeling of freedom from some 'monkey-chatter' that has plagued me for a long time. At the end of the day, I have miles and miles of entries on my gratitude list and my attitude about my life is a choice. I can muck around with what is fair or equitable or grumble about what I believe is owed to me, or I can choose to be filled with gratitude and joy for what I have. I am saying it now and mean this as a true commitment to my future: I Choose Happiness.
