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.

342. Show Me Your James

There are multiple amazing pictures from this night. Let me show you first the runner-ups:

 Stacy pulled a remote control out of her purse:
But here’s the winner… We were out at Plan B dancing and then Meagan showed me her impression of my dancing. So then I told my friends to do their best impression of me:
This reveals the many facets of James. Let me walk you through it. Alright. Katie represents Dancing James. I tend to purse my lips, pussy-pop and look over my shoulder. Meagan represents Winning James. This is the face I make when I shout, “Winning!” (Yes, claw included.) And lastly, Stacy represents Sexy James. When I want to seduce a man, I will make that face. I currently have 5 boyfriends. (I told someone at work that I have 5 boyfriends, and I’m pretty certain he believed me. Slutty win.)

I used to hate impressions of me. Now, I have developed a flawless sense of humor, and this picture makes me smile like a crocodile.
