SOMETHING I’VE BEEN TRYING TO DO FOR AWHILE NOW, and getting more successful by the day, finally: choosing to be happy*.
From the excellent Becoming Minimalist website:
For a lot of people, this is something you have to make a conscious decision to do, every single day.
*I know a lot of people think self-improvement stuff is just hokum, and I did, too. Until failures finally forced me to really look at myself and work harder to figure a lot of things out and learn. Finally. Whatever it takes, it’s never too late.
