Usually this time of year, I'm in a slump. Life is hard, the weather is cold, my mood is dark.
This year, well, life is exceptionally hard, the weather is very cold, but my mood? It's not so dark. It's light, even.
This is progress, friends.
I feel so powerful. I am aware of myself and know that I can overcome obstacles. I can conquer these feelings and my attitude, and I can choose happiness.
I knew January was going to be a test. It wasn't going to be easy. From the get go, I knew it was going to be a challenge to make it through.
But we did it! We made it to February! Now, things are going to change. The darkness is fading away and the light at the end of this very long tunnel is inching nearer and nearer with every new day.
It's a good feeling.
I wake up every morning and I choose to be happy, to see the positive, despite all of the challenges.
It's not easy. But being continuously negative and holding a pity party for myself isn't easy, either. It's downright exhausting and doesn't make me feel any better.
So I choose happiness. Despite it all.
And I have a lot to be happy about!
A loving hubby, pretty babies, and a world full of possibilities.
Welcome, February. Here's to four weeks of adventure!
