One thing about institute, you are really only late if you come in after the song and guess who beat the song? Yep, that's right I did. Not sure how, but I made it. The lesson was so amazing. It always amazes me the love that I feel from my Heavenly Father. After that I went to work. This is the point where the story actually makes sense. I had an ah-ha moment yesterday. I was sitting at work and I had decided just to write. My posts are always super long, so you probably realize that I figure my life out when I write and when I run. Anyway while I was writing, I realized how completely unhappy I am and how I was looking to other people to make my happiness. Then I realized how absolutely ridiculous that is. I am the only one that controls my attitude and my happiness. If I am not happy, then it is my own darn fault.
At the beginning of this year, I wrote that I want to smile more. I've changed my mind. I want to be happy. You can smile and still be completely unhappy, but true happiness is extremely visible. More than anything I've discovered that happiness is a choice. I'm not perfect and I'm not ever going to be, but I truly want to be happy. There will be bad days and good days; really bad days and really good days, that is okay. It is all up to me. I am the only one that says if I am happy or not. Starting right now, I will be happy. I will smile with a smile that reaches my eyes. I will laugh with deep ab-working laughs and I will not let those around influence whether or not I enjoy life. Live it up! Today is my day!
