So here's the explanation... you all know (cuz you read every word I write, right? hehe) that last year for my One Little Word I chose: Resolve. oye. It really was the perfect word for getting through 2014. It took a tremendous amount of resolve to plow forward and trust and put a lot of work into action, and all that... but sometimes I would look at the word posted on my wall and I'd feel like, what a bummer man! It was certainly my reality at the time.. but I thought, this is my life? yuck.
In the interest of completely switching gears for 2015 and moving forward into a better place (you've probably guessed it. Or maybe you got bored and stopped reading three paragraphs ago)... I decided that 2015 is all about happy. finding happy. being happy. embracing happy. happy in even the crappiest of days. happy, happy, happy. There's always room for it. I want to grab onto happy with both hands and never ever ever never let it go again. (too intense?) ;) I want to milk every ounce of happy out of every single second I can in every single possible moment. (yeah, intense and kinda creepy.) oh well, you get the point.
Depression is still a prevalent issue in my day to day. I've taken a lot of steps to work through it. I'm going to counseling, doing the work, etc. Still, I'm not gonna lie, it's a challenge.. but you know what? you can't keep a good dog down... and I don't want to let the dark clouds that roll in keep me from looking for the happy in every day. The word helps. It refocuses me, reminds me of the goal I have to seek happiness this year. So there you have it!
Here's a layout I made as a little reminder...
What's your word?
