Two Thousand Twelve ended and I wasn't exactly sad to see it go. I hate that I felt that way but if I'm staying true to this space that is the truth.

Somewhere along the way I lost my happy.

Two Thousand Thirteen is going to be the year that I find my happy.

I have no idea what the year will hold but I have opened my 2013 Project Life album with this piece of truth.

"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. " - Groucho Marx

Yes,
I have the power.

Here is to finding my happy. I have a feeling more nights spent like this will have a lot to do with it.

My intention is to be back this week to share my title page to this year's Project Life, fingers crossed. I hope you have a wonderful start to the week. :)

I had the year to find my happy in 2012. I loved the book The Happiness Project. It was a great read and gives you perspective. Love the last picture.

glad your back:) I also recommend the happiness project and happier at home - easy reads and inspirational. Are you doing one little word? Ali's prompts really get you thinking.
