I Choose to be Happy

It may seem a bit ridiculous but, to be happy is a choice we make daily.  In our action-packed lives we often forget to take a moment and consider what we are doing to ourselves – mind and body.  Somedays I feel like I’m losing myself and going down in a spiral of negative thoughts, negative energy.  And I have to check myself, rein in the thoughts and CHOOSE to be happy.  It’s an act of willpower, but once done it feels like…I can’t really articulate it, but everything just feels light light light.

So here is something I read today…

There comes a time in
life, when you walk away

from all the drama and

people who create it.

Surround yourself with

people who make you

laugh, forget the bad,

and focus on the good.

Love the people who treat

you right. Pray for the

ones who don’t. Life is

too short to be anything

but happy. Falling down

is part of life, getting

back up is living.


I have done it!  I’ve gone and created my own meetup group right here in Singapore.
River Valley Moms is now an official meetup group with 10 members and 5 more pending conifrmation!  All this within 12 hours of the group being launched.  I knew there had to be interest among the neighbourhood moms.  Strangely, there were no groups in the neighbourhood.  I wonder why?  Is the River Valley population too transient to sustain interest?  We will find out.  My first event is a tomorrow (excitement!!!).  We are meeting at a local playground.  Let’s see if anyone turns up… 
Oh, yes, I even have a tag line for the group –

“Let’s get together to laugh and play and create happy, memorable moments.”
