Happiness

I don't have the bikini ready body I want.

Even though I just got an unexpected raise at work (that doesn't kick in until April but still WOOHOO!) my checking account has never looked so anemic and my credit card is carrying a very high balance for the first time in years.

I have no boyfriends, dates, lovers, or even potentials in the love department.

My house is still in need of a major upgrade.

But despite everything I am happy.  I am really truly very happy.  Don't know exactly where it came from, but it's there.  I do know that it doesn't come from those outside things...it comes from somewhere inside and oozes out into everything you do.

YAY for Happy!


Totally unrelated but I love this girl! You go little miss independent!!

I love this post. It reminds me of the Marilyn Monroe quote, "She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that's important - you know." Yay for being happy :)

I love that video! It's so cute! But you have to wonder how staged it is... I'm just hoping it's real

That girl is so cute! Someone is indoctrinating her early to be a feminist!

And yay for happiness! It does take a certain internal quietude and stillness to reach happy, but it's there inside, waiting for us to find it. :)
