I Choose Happiness

I interpret for a design class and on every Tuesday and Thursday I see a poster in the room that says,

Smile, you're designed to.

It's not a novel concept, really. We aren't meant to be unhappy in this crazy, beautiful thing called life. Yet, there are people who try to bring you down to their level of unhappiness (for whatever reason that may be) and while it does bother me, I have to remember that I am happy.

Mike and I lead a happy, healthy and wonderful life together. Yes, there are times that are hard, a struggle, stressful, sad or unpleasant but in general we can find happiness in everything that life has thrown our way. If I can't find happiness in something I do my very best to turn the situation around by either eliminating what it is that isn't making me happy, making a change or realizing that there usually is at least a little bit of happiness in everything that we do. 

So what makes me happy?
