Do yall remember the scene on Scandal when Olivia was dancing in the living room with Jake and she made the bold declaration that she was choosing herself...choosing to dance...choosing to be happy? Yeah...that's the one...the one right before she got snatched.
I wonder how many people sat on their couches thinking, "I should've seen that coming." I think many of us are like that...we are afraid to choose happiness. We are afraid to declare that although we aren't where we want to be that we are moving in the right direction. We are afraid to admit that things are ok...out of fear that once we say it, the universe will snatch it. We won't own our choice to be happy and therefore never get to truly experience our happy place. But you know what? It's ok to choose your happiness and it's ok if that happiness only lasts for two days, one day, or a quick moment. That one moment of happiness is worth it. Today I challenge all of us to choose to be happy...choose to dance... #HappyMonday
