  • This has turned out to be a good day after all.
    In my head I am constantly telling myself good things because I am going through a difficult phase.
    As I tell myself good things, I find that the difficult phase is actually becoming a series of good days.
    Two days in a row in fact.
    I don't care if anyone thinks I'm a buddhist mantra crackhead.
    I feel better and as a result, happier, kinder, more considerate.
    It's good to be a buddhist mantra crackhead.

    I am reminded at how different my world is now from last year.
    I was at a place that was infinitely more difficult than where I am now.
    Yet last year, I decided, I will choose to be happy.
    Right here, right now.
    So one year later, I'm going to do the same thing.
    I choose happiness. Right here. Right now.
