I used to think happiness was a destination.
I used to tell myself that.
I’ll be happy when I lose the weight.
I’ll be happy when I graduate from college.
I’ll be happy when I get married.
I’ll be happy when I get a new job.
I’ll be happy when I become a travel nurse.
Some of those came and I still wasn’t happy.
I realized that happiness comes when I decide to be happy.
I am happy with the woman that I am now and the woman that I am still becoming.
I am happy with the progress that I’ve made and I’m happy to be working towards my goals and dreams.
I took responsibility for my own happiness.
I am happy because I decided to be happy and grateful.
