Project: Get Happy

Time and again we all find ourselves falling into ditches that we dig ourselves.
It may not be yourself that's doing the digging all the time but finally, only you can put yourself in a ditch and maybe stay there.
There are lots of people, situations, life processes, your body giving up(illness) or general negativity that urge you to get into and fall in the ditch but it's all up to you whether you get in or stay out.
I am talking about one such ditch. I need to get out. I do come out of it many a times but I find myself going back to the comfort of it.
When I close my eyes, I see myself as a very happy infant, toddler, child, young adult but somewhere along the road, I lost myself to the myriad experiences that is my life.
I let others dictate my happiness to me, who I am, what I want to be and what I believe in.
I think it's time to be me. The ever-happy and unlimited me.
I had started a project last year and it was to lose weight. And I did.
This year the project is to get happy, half the year is done with. More than half, it's August now.
Boy, did someone keep hitting that snooze button.
But there's time. Don't fret. There's always today and a tomorrow.
How do I propose to get started?
I'll just wake up in the morning with the enthusiasm of a child.
No baggage from yesterday and no thoughts about tomorrow.
I plan to practise staying in the now as much as possible.
The first thing I am going to do is clear out my room.
I have a happy space that I have been clearing up since a while now, I'll fix that up and post
my next 'Get Happy' assignment in here soon :)
Let's whip out some of that music too.
