Day 7 A Lesson Relearned

What I relearned today is that only I am responsible for my own happiness.  Not the Mister, not my family, not my co-workers.  Being happy is a frame of mind, you can either choose to be happy, smile and have a good day; or you could choose the opposite.  This evening when Mister called and said he would not be able to make it over, I found myself feeling a bit blue and maybe a little angry towards him.  And then I realized how I was behaving.  Was I really going to spend the evening bummed and blame him??? Heck no!  I had things I wanted to do and I was not going to sit around sulking.  Besides, Mister and I always have tomorrow.  
Speaking of tomorrow, it will be my Mom's 70th birthday. It's hard to think of her as 70 as she is a 5' 2" bundle of dynamite.  She moves furniture, carries heavy bags of groceries, drives EVERYWHERE - this woman knows a shortcut to the corner.  Should have been a cab driver in NYC.  She's awesome, full of energy (wears me out) and just the best.  And I love her lots.  So, dinner, tomorrow, with Mom.  
Good night all!

  1. Good points for all of us.... we must choose to be happy and some times we must relearn that which we know but overlook. Thanks for the reminder.
