I Decide to Be Happy Today

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60 People

    Why Do I Sometimes Reject This Idea?

    I really want to be happy. What I don't do when i decide to be happy is to see it through. Sometimes I reject this idea and don't decide to be happy. Stupid huh? I am not sure why on earth I do this I consider it one of my failings.

    Happy

    Life

    Last night I realized a lot. It was my last homecoming ever. I had an absolute blast with friends and family. Saw old friends and got to say hi to a band that I helped last year. Two people were missing from my circle that would have made it perfect. My mom had to work, and my...
