30 Days of Happy

Man oh man this has been a rough week. I’m normally a positive and upbeat person who chooses to see the good in every situation. Ending a friendship, though, deserves some mourning. I didn’t feel I had a choice, yet cutting those ties was still a difficult and painful decision and that was why I felt the need to write about it. I’ve received a lot of support, but there have also been some anonymous people who have chosen to attack me personally and that hurts my soul.

However…I know that my outlook on life and my frame of mind is my choice. A friend asked me one time if I just choose to be positive and I said “yes I do. Every day.” ¬†Yesterday I realized I’ve allowed the negativity to tarnish me this week and so today I say No More.

I’ve been inspired by a good friend. For 30 days she’s going to do 30 minutes of cardio. Period. So to follow her lead, for 30 days I’m going to write about something happy. It should be fairly easy, because I have a lot to be happy about. This will just be a daily reminder of how much.

I’m writing this from my parents’ house, and I’m particularly happy for the close, loving relationship I have with them both. We love and respect each other and they’re truly my best friends. I know how lucky I am to have such supportive, fun, intelligent and warm people to guide me and I’m proud to be their daughter.

Day one down. I feel better already!
