Positive #1: The Choice Not to Go to a Meeting

The snow upon waking this morning was beautiful to look at. Driving in it would be challenging and risky. I took care of myself (and my would-be passenger) by choosing not to go to the meeting. In Happiness 101 I talk a lot about choice and turning “have to”s into “get to”s. Many times I find that when I feel obligated to do something, it sucks the fun and adventure out of it. Making the choice to care for myself feels good.
