Don't you love things that make you happy?
Some people say that it's superficial to surround yourself with things you know make you happy. Is it shallow to immerse yourself in delight? To dance in joy? To look at all things beautiful and pleasing and wonderful?
I don't think so.
I think life is too short not to. I think life is delightful. I think life is exciting and thrilling and one big, grand adventure.

I think there is going to be a lot of pain in life. I think there is going to be lots of grief. Lots of dark. Lots of wrong. A lot of pain.

So, if you know life is going to include shadows and pain and grief - why not surround yourself with wonder and beauty and joy?
Happiness is a choice. Happiness is an attitude. Happiness is a beautiful, wonderful gift.
So do! Place beautiful flowers on the counter. Listen to that fun music. Dance in front of the mirror. Laugh!
Life is good.
