I Choose Happiness

I saw this picture on Brandi's Blog, Not your Average Ordinary, and I thought it very suiting for today. I need to choose happiness over anger. I always aim to be positive and to live my life with my glass half full rather than half empty, but it's been hard lately. I'm setting out to change the situation and the atmosphere that is making me feel this way.
I'm on a mission people!

I can tell you from my own experience, as hard as it may seem it is SO worth it to get rid of the people and things that make you unhappy or bring you down.
Just remember all the wonderful things that ARE happening like your marriage!!

I hope you choose happiness too:)

Thanks so much! that really means a lot. lets just say that this 'thing' that is brining me down, is what I do ALL day! I updated my resume last night and emailed some people. that was the first step to me changing and removing the problem.

Thanks for your support! I have a lot of good going on and I just need to keep reminding myself of that.

i love this sentiment. it makes me stop and think about how difficult it can be to choose happiness sometimes, but how it is always a possibility.

Remember the power of positive thought! I actually started to put sayings on my walls and little reminders of what I want to visualize. Maybe print this photo out and put it up? And definitely, if you ever need any inspiration, let me know and I'll help however I can. You can do it, my dear! Focus on that beautiful wedding of yours -- and even more important, the beautiful life you have and how wonderful it will be after your wedding.

Thanks for all your support! I hate to be a debbie downer but I just had to get that off my chest. Even just putting that picture up and writing those words of encouragement to myself was a great help to my attitude.

I have some wonderful readers (and friends)
