Helloooo and Happy first Monday of February! 
I saw this very cute quote on social media about starting the new year on February 1st, I think they're on to something! 
At the beginning of each new year I always choose a word. Something to help set my intention and to be a constant reminder, a theme, of how I want my year to feel. Sometimes it's a few words, sometimes it's complicated but this year it is simply HAPPY. Yup, that's my word, HAPPY.  I stole it from my husband, he picked it as his word first. The thing about Happiness, that most people forget, or never knew in the first place, is that Happiness is a choice. And that choice is yours, and yours alone. To be truly happy all the time means that you have to choose happiness everyday no matter what is going on around you. It means if you are having a bad day at work, you can still choose to be happy. If you didn't get something you expected, you can still choose to be happy. When we wake up tomorrow and Trump is still president, we can still choose to be happy (some happy will obviously be more challenging then others). 

These little guys are worth sharing again.
