Choosing Happy


At some point you have to choose happiness. Even though it's snowing in Chicago again today, we ventured out. Sure, there was snow blowing directly into my ear. But it was time to get my head out of my ass.

Spring eventually comes.

I often talk to my clients about confirmation bias. Meaning, once you decide something, you subconsciously look for ways to validate your belief. I could quite easily list the ways in which life has been trying, since November really: the failed fertility cycle, insurance battles, our condo flooding, family challenges, a particularly harsh winter. Alas, I'm choosing happiness.

Our sweet little boy is thriving. Mr. Fix-It completed his Master's Degree. My therapy practice is doing well. We have wonderful people in our lives. Photography season is starting up again. Our life is, ultimately, quite good. And even though it's only mid-February, it's starting to feel like spring is just a few more weeks away.
