Singing in the shower, broken umbrellas, and chasing dreams

Three random thoughts...

1. My day wasn’t really any different than any other Tuesday. I went to work, went to the gym, came home, made/ate dinner, and took a shower. While showering and shamelessly dancing/singing by my naked self I got this overwhelming feeling of happiness. Complete and utter happiness. I think it’s really hard to just be happy sometimes. To not wish for things or situations that would make me “happier.” Happiness is a choice – it always is, no matter what cards we’re dealt. I was reminded of that today.

2. This is not an uncommon site here...

Yes, that is an umbrella. It was one of those days in which you just have to laugh and let the rain literally drench you. My umbrella had no chance against the hazard that was England weather today. Normally I would be really ticked about that, but I just let it happen. Choosing to be happy.

3. Austin bought his ticket to go back to Ghana for a month in August. I'm not sure what I'll do for a whole month without him. For those that don’t know, he is going over to pilot his start up business. So yes, the idea is to end up in Africa (at least for a while). Most people think we are crazy, and we probably are a little bit. If you would have told me 10 years or even 5 years ago that I would be married to Austin Cornilles and living in England with plans to move to Ghana… I would call you CRAZY. But here we are. I admire the way he lives his life. There are so many reasons to not chase your dreams and he never lets any of them get in the way. Our life together is one adventure that I couldn’t be happier to be on.

Happy Tuesday, world.
