This weekend I made a decision, I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep this promise to myself, but for however long I can it will be worth it.
I noted the other day that whenever someone asks me how I am, my go-to response is ‘busy’ or ‘tired’ or worse yet, ‘stressed’. Yes, most of my life I am indeed busy, tired, and stressed. Yet, I am also happy a good chunk of that time as well. So I have decided to make my immediate response from here on out ‘happy’.
I like to think that if someone asks me how I am and I can smile and say ‘happy’ that I will be able to focus on those moments, the happy ones.
Because yes, this past week I didn’t sleep.
I barely ate.
I haven’t worked out in a while.
I have a lot to do.
I’m working constantly.
But I’m still happy.
Everything isn’t perfect but that doesn’t mean that I am not and can not be happy. So as I go into this coming week – my final final at 2pm on Tuesday – I plan on responding ‘happy’ consistently.
And so with that, I want to ask you; how are you today?
