Intentional Happiness 365...Day 1!

My life has been crazy. CUH-RA-ZEE to say the least, in the last month or two…up and down. Side to side. Boat rocking, jet lagging life experiences. So, now I choose happiness. Not just today, but EVERY DAY. For at least a year. Hey, to make something part of your character, you must first make it part of your habits. To make something a habit…practice it, practice it, practice it…


My boss is freaked out. Most of my colleagues are freaked out. I am on day one of my journey; it is early morning. Come hell or high water, I am creating my happiness, even if it is out of nothingness. Because I can. Because I will. Because I deserve it. And because what could be more exciting than a journey of happiness?

I think some people think “SOMETHING IS UP.” I think some people think a long existed but never disussed multiple personality has shown up.

You know what?

The only thing that has shown up in my life…at least on PURPOSE…is happiness. Because it is my choice.


2:12 pm- still smiling. People asking a lot of questions. Yes, I am striving to be intentionally happy. Every day. For the next 365 days. No, I do not know what that is going to look like right now. I don’t know if it’s going to be easy. I do know that I’m excited for the ride. I do know for the first time in a long time I am actually looking forward to THIS moment, and not the END of this moment. Or the end of the journey. I’m ready to sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Don’t you think it’s a wee bit mental that when someone decides they want to be happy, other people get suspicious? I love this idea. I love YOU. Have a good year.
