Starting on Monday, September 6, 2010 (at 4:00 in the morning, so technically Sunday, September 5), I started taking a picture of something that made me happy every day. My Project Happiness 365 started as a proactive act on my part to ward off deep depression. It was spurred by heartbreak as an effort to pull myself out of the wreckage, but now it's fueled by gratitude and a desire to find the beauty in everyday, "mundane" life. This is my honest, vulnerable journey from Hot Mess to Winning. I hope this helps. Oh, and if you're in pain, good; that means you put your whole heart into something. And if you think it won't ever get better, I promise it will. Here's my proof.

OK. Catching up. But I went rollerblading with Caity the other day! This is us taking a break on a bench that said “Walkers/Runners Rest Stop”. We decided to include “Rollerbladers” in that title:
Rollerblading is kind of terrifying for me…. cuz I’m terrified of the pavement. Last time I met the pavement, it broke my collarbone. So I’d rather never see/touch the pavement again. Alas, I cannot defy gravity. So. I decided to face the fear… WITH CAITY! We went blading in super cutes outfits. I didn’t wear a helmet cuz I didn’t think I’d ever go fast enough to go flying. But I DID wear wrist guards (a la Caity’s suggestion). AND she taught me how to use my brakes, which is, ya know, HELPFUL. So thanks to Caity. And I didn’t fall!! Caity did but it was because she was trying to turn around and look at me… and obviously my looks stunned her into falling. Jks. But she totes fell. But she’s ok. And I got to wipe the dust off her crack so it really was a win win situation. And Caity made up a word but it’s a bit too foul for the interwebs.

Conquering fears for the win.
