I’ve always thought that happiness is mostly a choice, I say mostly because we must face that there are forces beyond our control that can bring on unhappiness . Over the past few days I’ve been put to the test on these ideas and I’ve come through it believing that happiness is a choice……..mostly! I make a conscious decision to smile when I don’t feel like smiling and it helps but I’ve had so much on my plate lately I feel like I’ve been lost in the shuffle. I’ve been trying so hard to make everyone else happy that I forgot to make me happy.i love to help others but when it gets so heavy that you feel smothered by others problems, it’s time to reevaluate things! I know I’m rambling but to be honest that’s okay , for this moment I just want to be heard. I’ve taken on too much of other people’s crap and I need some freddiejay time!
