I am heading out of town for the day today. A colleague and I will be visiting another hospital to confer with another healthcare professional and get some input on things we needed input on - last week. This week, we are actually the experts - after the experiences of this week... but give and take, it is all good. I am happy to not have to spend the day in my office today. I am happy to have several hours with my colleague because she is someone I really enjoy. It is a beautiful day, and I live in a beautiful state, and it is a nice day for a drive.
I am also happy that last night I had an adult conversation with someone I deeply care about, and although we made some decisions that I don't really like, I can be loving and calm about it. I do not have to be unhappy. I really don't. So - I think I will chose to be happy today.
Maybe it was Abe Lincoln who said: Most people are about as happy as they decide to be... I am too lazy to look it up. But I will take it to heart anyway.
