I just changed the title of this blog to "Happiness is in the Hows." This is very much in alignment with life is like riding a bike -- to be balanced you have to keep moving. Despite what I'm currently facing, I have decided to be happy. I choose to be because the hell with the things that make me unhappy and causing me to not do anything but worry. Happiness is in the Hows. Keep on moving. Keep on learning. You will enjoy it more, and frankly life is too damn short to not be.
Keeping promises is hard. It requires us to do things we don't want to do. But keep those promises you must do. Otherwise, do not make them in the first place. But since you have made them, you must keep them, especially if it would benefit all those involved including yourself.
