Viva la Happy!

Lately, I've been feeling slightly blue. Maybe it's the cold weather, maybe it's the post-wedding blues, maybe it's the fact that I'm jobless, or maybe it's the fact that I'm not in school for the first time in 19 years. But yesterday over a manicure (a gift from my generous mother-in-law), I decided that I was being a bit ridiculous. If I tried to count all of my blessings, I would run out of fingers and toes in about 5 seconds. I am truly fortunate. I was inspired to grab the reins of my life and stop letting myself feel pathetic and helpless. Hence, the new start to my blog, a new etsy shop (coming in a few days), and a new outlook on life. After I wrote my first blog post last night, I started to think of what "Viva la Happy" means to me. With a little help from I'd like to share my thoughts with you.
1. an exclamation of acclaim or approval

1. delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing: to be happy to see a person.
2. characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy: a happy mood; a happy frame of mind.
3. favored by fortune; fortunate or lucky: a happy, fruitful land.

My interpretation:
HOORAY! I am delighted to be alive!
YIPPEE! I am glad I decided to be a teacher.
WAHOO! I am constantly pleased with my husband. (Yes I said it and I mean it. He's the best!).
YAY! I experience true and utter contentment when I am with my family.
VIVA! I am so, so, so joyful, fortunate, lucky.
