On Being Happy

I think that for the first time in a long time, I can say that I am truly happy. It's not just because of my wonderful boyfriend, though he is definitely a part of it. Nor is it that I'm officially an upperclassman with a projected graduation date in 2017 (!!!) though I won't lie, that's pretty great. It's not because I'm skating three times a week this term, or how comfortable on the ice I am starting to feel.

I think it's because I'm finally comfortable with myself.  I'm not defensive about my height or my weight, my taste in music or anything else that people try to shame others about. I'm done imagining what could have been and instead have been focusing on living in the present. Things are how they are, and one can either fight things or accept them and move on. I'm done trying to fight battles I cannot win-- instead I'm going to make the best of my situation. And my situation right now is really quite simple, and quite good. I don't have a reason to create problems or make myself unhappy for no reason.

It's nice to write a post basically saying that all is well in my world, at least for now. I know that moments like this are fleeting unless you fight to keep them, and I think I'm ready to fight for happiness.


  1. I'm glad you're happy :) It's nice to feel at ease with yourself and with your situation, and it's such a good reason to be happy.

    Also, as a former figure skater, I'm glad you're feeling comfortable on the ice ;)


  2. Sometimes just letting loose and allowing yourself to fall into life just makes you so so happy. Sometimes nothing beats daily life, and I think that's how you know you're living a good one.

  3. Glad you're happy :) I'm happier now, too, after about three months of misery... I don't hesitate to cut out negativity in my life, including people.

  4. It's so great to be in a place of happiness! It doesn't happen all the time so we really have to enjoy it and cherish it when we have those moments.
