What makes you happy?

Do things make you happy?

Or do you simply choose to be happy regardless of what you have or don't have?

I think it comes down to a choice. Sure, things happen that you don't like, that you don't want. But happiness is a choice. You can choose to allow what other people say or do affect how you view yourself, your life...or you can choose to not allow others to affect those things.

It is certainly easier to do that when life is going well. But, again, "well" depends on your viewpoint, doesn't it?


I choose to laugh. :)

To update anyone that may care to read this...

My life is going fantastically (if a little too busy) these days. I am now married to an absolutely wonderful man, my son is doing really well and we are looking forward to the birth of a healthy new boy in November.

I won't bore you with the details of what's happened in between all that but, of course, just when you think that you have all (or more than) you can handle, sometimes God throws you a curveball. But curveballs are what make life more interesting. Sometimes they are sad things, but you learn to get past that and move forward into the happy. That's what these last two years have been for me...learning to move forward past the sad.

Because the sad things sometimes are what lead you to the wonderful.

You're married! It's gonna be a boy!
WoW! I am so pleased for you April...if ANYONE deserves this, it's you. I'm so glad you're back, so pleased you've found happiness.

You have really put a smile on my face today.

And guess what the word verication says?


How cute is that! xx

you sound good.

and I agree, choose to be happy, it's so much better than the alternatives.

how's it go? life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it, or some crap like that...

I'm so happy for you.
