It may seem really obvious but we can choose to be happy. Sometimes its not an easy choice to make and we spend more energy resisting it than accepting it. Frankly, its easier and sometimes more satisfying to complain about whats going wrong in your life than actually doing something to improve it. I spent the entire Spring refusing to be happy and its no surprise to anyone that I had a miserable Spring. In fact, the flowers in bloom, lush trees and any new signs of life irritated me to my core because of how dead I felt inside. What a shame too, it was my first Spring in Paris. 
I started to choose being happy over feeling sorry and you know what? Its starting to work. Why didn't anyone tell me about this before? I can just say 'I choose to be happy' and focus on new ventures and it works? There is power in intentions and mine is to live life to the fullest and choose to be happy, damn it!
Someone stop me if I start saying it to myself in the mirror. I have to draw the line somewhere.
