surround yourself with things that make you happy.

I don't know if it's because of the warmer weather or just the state I'm in, but I am generally in a good mood most of the time.  Naturally, I have my off moments, but I seem to be in a consistently positive mental space.  So I simply analyzed what I've been doing that's different, and it came to me -- I try to surround myself with things that make me happy.

In the slow process of getting my new place together, I have focused less on having things for functionality, and primarily on finding things that I love.  This has probably contributed to everything coming together at a slower pace, but I can definitely say I'm happier when I come home, which is most important.

Such a novel concept - if I am around people, places, and things that make me happy, I will in fact be happier.  Who would've thought?  

It's a simple message, but sometimes we all need a little reminder.

Until next time,

OM
