People Are Just As Happy As They Make Up Their Minds To Be

I read from Megan McCafferty's Jessica Darling series that "happiness is a choice." Jessica's grandma Gladdie told her this and it was brought up at Gladdie's funeral. Ever since I read it, it really stuck with me. It's a hard choice, but it's still a choice.

Then I read this month's affirmation from Kikki-K's Collaborative Happiness Project and it, too, says that we're just as happy as we make up our minds to be. And I have to say, lately, I'm not the most positive person around. In fact, I'm just downright negative. Collapse )

So really, despite all the negativity, i consistently immerse myself in, I'm going to try. Try really hard to be happier. Choose happiness. It's harder than it looks.
