I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

Today is the day we all share what resolutions we will tackle this year. Usually mine involve loosing weight, running faster, getting a better job, blah, blah, blah. This year I chose to do things differently. I am making a resolution to be happy. I have specific things I want to accomplish this year, but I honestly believe the only way I will reach them is by being happy.
So, this year I will make happiness a priority. I will let go of the negative things and people in my life to find ways of connecting with those people who have been supportive, to do things I love, and to just be me. I tend to not allow my true thoughts and feelings come out because I don't want to offend someone, but it never bodes well when I do that. It negates my sense of who I am and my sense of worth. If I want to be happy, I need to be who I truly am, not who I want people to think I am.
What are you vowing this year? Do you have specific goals?
