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.

In Chicago, I did a lot of lifting:

Chaz and I lifted her in the air. She leaned back, I held her scapulae in my hands, Chaz grabbed her ankle and then we lifted her horizontal above our head, she developped as we walked in a circle. My wrists do not bend at a 90 degree angle. And I haven’t been working out. She’s bitty. But it was still a challenging lift for two people. So. I’m really proud of myself for lifting her above my head. 🙂

Makes me feel like Hercules.
