Chasing HappyNESS: The Beginning

Oh, my aspiration in life would be happy. -Beyonce

A close friend once told me that being happy is a decision. I agree. Each morning if you wake up with gratitude and declare over your day that it will be a great one then 9 out of 10 times it will be.

Truth is I complain. A LOT! Reflecting on the past year has ultimately led me to make some positive changes that I hope to carry with me throughout 2016 and beyond. One of which is constantly creating happiness. Choosing to be happy. Chasing Happy for Ness.

In honor of that I have decided to create a series for my blog titled, Chasing HappyNess.

Choosing to love myself without compromise while journeying to and through me to get the most out of life. - Ness

Over the course of 2016 I hope to continue to share what genuinely brings me happiness in hopes of maybe you picking up some along the way.

Nelson Mandela once said, "And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." That is essentially my goal here. I hope my journey of constantly going after my dreams, getting the most out of life, finding ways to fill myself with an over abundance of happiness will inspire you do the same. So while I'm chasing  HappyNess, you can go after Happy[insert your name here] unapologetically and without compromise.
