My plan backfired. In an attempt to create 31 Days of Happiness, I have managed to somehow stress myself out more. This probably isn’t a good thing. After returning from Detroit last night and waking up this morning not feeling so well (physically and mentally), I realized that I actually need to start making some positive changes rather than just talking about them, or in a few cases, pretending to talk about them.
So, here’s the deal. I’m throwing in the towel. I’m calling it quits. The 31 Days of Happiness Challenge failed. And to be honest, I’m totally okay with it. Sometimes in life we make the best choice possible at a particular moment. Later, we may come to realize that decision is no longer working. It’s just not making us happy. That means its time to pack up your experiences, lessons learned, and a cup of coffee for the road and move on. And while it’s okay to look back every once in a while, have no regrets. In my opinion, knowing when it’s time to move on, is often more important than hanging on for all the wrong reasons.
As some of you may have noticed, I’m also applying this principle to other areas of my life. Life is too short to be unhappy doing something you really don’t love.
This is the 16th, and final post in my 31 Days of Happiness Series.
