Happiness is not a destination we arrive at…. It is all in how we feel

I like smiling, smiling is my favorite. –Buddy the Elf

Yes I’m one of those people that you see smiling all the time.  It gets annoying I know but I’m just a generally happy person.  I make the conscious decision every day when I wake up to be happy.  I figure if I start out that way then my day can only get better. BUT it may not.  I’m not a Pollyanna.  I am aware that there are bad things going on all around me.  That someone else that I walk by on the street could be having the worst day of their lives or they could have gotten some devastating news.  That’s why I choose to smile at them as I walk by.  Who knows, they could have been thinking about how shitty their life is, but because I smiled at them and then they smiled back, it helped them forget their own problems for awhile.

And don’t get me wrong, I’m not always happy….  I harbor a secret sadness that I will never share with anyone.  My life is far from perfect, but I make the very best of it.  God has really blessed me.  I have a wonderful husband, amazing well adjusted grown up children, a good extended family and friends that I adore.  OMG do I have friends!  I never thought that I would have such good friends…..

So tomorrow when you wake up.  Be happy with the fact that you are breathing, and alive.  Put a smile on your face no matter what is going on in your life.  Say hello world, watch the fuck out because I’m awake and ready to take on the day.  Let’s get to it!!!
