It feels strange to be on here again because I just posted yesterday. It used to be normal to post daily, but now my goal is to blog once a week.
However, apparently it is the International Day of Happiness (and the first day of Spring) so I feel like writing.
Because happiness is pretty damn important.
Before I go further though, and before I forget again like I did in the last post, I wrote another guest blog post for my local Mommy Connections page. Check it out. It's all about my experience with breastfeeding. It's obviously not a topic everybody is interested in, but if you are, check it out. Here it is: Breastfeeding
It used to be a goal of mine to be happy. Even in the midst of unhappiness, all I wanted was some laughter. A lightness of the heart.
Then one day, I figured it out. I just had to be happy. Easy as that. Just be happy. I had to look at things differently. Gratitude was huge in changing my way of looking at my life. In my case, there was always something to be grateful about, I just had to pay attention, and appreciate it.
I am by no means happy all the time. I try to be, but I'm also good at being grumpy. That won't change.
Today is International Day of Happiness, and I wish with all my heart that EVERY day could be International Day of Happiness, and that people could see the the great things in life.
I know that not everybody is in the place or the situation to even experience the good, but the optimistic in me has hope.
I can't make everybody happy. I can try though!
Anthony makes my heart happy every day. I hope that I will be able to do the same for him. I never expected that having him would make me as happy as I am. I still get tired and impatient, but mostly, I'm just grateful to have him and happy to see him laugh and smile.
So here's to happiness. Here's to the good things, big or small. Here are some photos of my happy things:
