I have decided to be happy because it is good for my health. ~ Voltaire
I am responsible for my own happiness. It needs to become something that is a consistent force in my life, not dependent on the emotions of my beautiful two year old, or the choices of my hardworking husband, the fulfillment of my job, or even the realization of creative projects. I want to exude genuine happiness this year.
I am taking the month of January to be mindful in thinking about this new year. Finding thoughts and ideas that capture what I want to hold on to in the year to come. I have traded out the word "resolutions" and replaced it with "intentions". It feels kinder, less condemning of the past choices and living, more proactive and optimistic. I will be sharing these thoughts and intentions throughout the month.
