February--Be Happy

I’m a few days late, but it is time to move past my month of happy changes.  I will admit, I’m a bit reluctant to let it go.  Making happy changes has been fun, enlightening, and…happy.  What have I learned?  Above all else, happiness is a daily choice, a lifestyle, a conscious decision.  Another thing, it is not easy, it requires effort.  And sometimes, no matter how hard I try, I’m just not happy.  That’s life.

But, I plan on being happy a lot more often…most of the time actually.  After a month of thinking and reading and writing about happiness, I have a really clear idea of what makes me happy and what I need to do to ensure that I stay happy.  The most important part of this process was creating my Happiness Commandments and discovering Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project.  I was waiting for someone to give me permission to pursue happiness, and Gretchen was my woman.  Thank you, Gretchen…you are my happiness hero!

In case you missed any of my happiness commandment posts, here are links to each of them:

#1--Live with Faith

#4--Time Out
