for some reason, yesterday i was just happy—everything was joyful. i feel like i usually am a happy person most of the time, but this time there was something a little different. i can’t quite put it into words, but it was just joy, pure joy… inside and out.

the little things that usually annoyed me at work or just frustrated me (people not tipping, or unpleasant people that were just mean for no reason), they weren’t getting to me. very easily, i was able to brush these off, put on a smile and move on to the next table. it was so nice and it worked out because i had many other tables that were very pleasant, so the silly stupid ones were drowned out.

after work, i came home dancing. i was singing and excited to watch the finale of The Bachelor. i made some homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and gleefully shared them with my friends. though i was disappointed with the outcome of The Bachelor, i quickly accepted his choice, moved on, and went to bed reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

i think the difference between this happiness was that it was coming from me—no other outside sources (friends, family, school, work, boyfriend), from me. my soul. the inner workings of the joyous spirit inside me.
it’s beautiful and wonderful to feel JOY.
i want to feel like this everyday… so i’m going to! i choose to be happy, joyful, loving, and spirited!
