When Happy Happens

Today I just have an overwhelming sense of happy.  It's so easy to focus on the negative, but I'm all about finding the good when things aren't going the way I'd imagined them.  But today, I don't have to find anything... I am just happy.

I wish I had a beach to jump on!

It could have been the Chipotle I had for lunch yesterday.  (With a diet coke - oops, it just tasted so, so good!)

Or maybe it is the beautiful weather we are finally having in Chicago.  80's and sunny?  Yes - I've missed you!

Perhaps it was picking up E from preschool for the last time this year.  She's grown up so much and my heart couldn't have felt more proud.

It could be the night I spent with my amazing friends Sunday, celebrating a very special 30th birthday.  Dinners with my girlfriends are the best!

Maybe it is the plans I've been making.  Trips with family, trips with friends, home improvements, summer fun.

Whatever it is, it's a great feeling.  I feel like I could accomplish anything, and have the desire to do so much.  Last week for Wednesday Wishes, all of my wishes were for strength for various people in my life.  I'm happy to report back this week that strength was found.  We are still battling some tough things, but I firmly believe that "attitude is everything", and the strength and determination that has be shown could get anyone through any situation.

This week, my wish is simple.  I wish for happiness.  Happiness can be found in the simplest of things.  Take a moment and find something happy today - it could shift your soul and change a lot of things.  When happy happens, so do good things.

I'm linking up with Anne from Love the Here and Now and her co-host, Rachael from Lumuhand.  What are you wishing for?
