H is for Happiness...

My dear friend Kavita had once put up a story on her blog that was very well received and also made it to the top 10 finalists in a blog contest. It is a sad, yet inspirational true story of what led a woman to divorce. The woman (named Kyra in the story) has picked up the pieces of her life, remarried and made the choice to put the past behind her. The best part of the post is its title - Happiness is a choice, not circumstance.

I have met many Kyras, many strong women who have it in them to break free from painful experiences and memories. These women have truly believed that they deserve to live a better and happier life and have worked towards that goal, rather than wallow in self pity. I am proud to have several of these women as my close friends. You know who you are. *BEAR HUGS* to all you beautiful, amazing women. Your strength, courage, determination and the choice you made have made ME a better person.

Happiness is a choice. Every single day, life gives us this choice. What have YOU chosen today? Best Blogger Tips

  1. After reading your post i have chosen happiness :)...

  2. I've chosen to come here and talk to you about happiness. For me, happiness is a large spoonful of Ben & Jerry's. It's a warm kitty curled into my lap. It's the knowledge that someday, somehow, I will stage a fight between a zombie, a mummy, and a non-sparkly vampire in a fight to the undeath.

  3. @Amara: :D

    @Nate: Hey! I luuuurrrve your crazy blog. It has the perfect amount of nonsense to cheer me up on a boring day. You did not tell me how you liked my entries to your contest. Rule #6 made me quite nervous. Please tell me I won something.

  4. I sometimes am victim to not allowing myself to be happy, but I am really working toward achieving at least a moment of it every day. It really is a choice, and it's sad that some people don't choose it- because there are many who haven't had the chance in their lives to have more of it.
