"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect.
It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."
The name of this blog is The Pursuit of Happiness because I wanted to find ways to make myself a happier person through creative outlets. During stressful times in my life, I have a really hard time finding the happiness in my life and I can only focus on the negatives. I'm trying to make an effort to be more positive and happy because I think it can only make my life better. The people around me deserve to be around a happy, pleasant person instead of a grouch.Do you have certain things that you do for yourself to stay positive? How do happy people stay so darn happy? Were they just born that way? Are they just optimistic people? I need some feedback...
And on the theme of being happy, my friend Christina over at Finally Mom happened to give me this Happy 101 award and I'm very honored!
Rules of the award:4. Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award
