If you know me, you know I love being happy, I love to smile. I don’t consider myself as an over bubbly person, I just try to overall enjoy life as much as I can. I didn’t realize until just recently that this attitude may not be well received by everyone.
For me, happiness is contagious. When I see someone truly enjoying what they are doing or the people they are with my attitude immediately imitates theirs. Especially in the past few years I have come to realize how truly blessed I am and how many opportunities I have. This isn’t to say that I haven’t had hard times in my life. I have definitely been faced with situations that I have not been able to face with happiness. However, all of those things have just given me more reason to focus on the good times in my life and face them with as much joy as I can.
Though this type of personality may annoy people at times, it is not something that I can live without. When I do have days where I am not quite my bubbly self, it feels as if a part of me is missing- that I am somehow not fulfilling my life to the fullest it can possibly be lived. Those that do not follow this way of thinking have fallen out of my life, not purposefully, but always seem to disappear into the past. Which in all honesty is fine with me–they were obviously not meant to be there in the first place.
So, take me as I am. And that is a bubbly, happy, smiling girl who tries everyday to be a small light to an otherwise sometimes dark world. 🙂
