Photo Share Friday: Choose Happiness

Recently I shared my intentions for the year, aka the ways I want to live every single day.  Top of the list?  Choose happiness.

I had a huge come to Jesus with myself about this very subject a few months ago.  I got so tired of being anxious and worried and full of fear.  But the reality is, no one can change that for me.  Only I control where my mind goes, and how I spend the moments of my life.

One of the best ways to choose happiness?  Surround yourself with happy people.  People that bring you joy and laughter and lift you up when you need it most.

I love this photo, because every person in it makes me happy.  The craziest thing is that four years ago I didn't know any of them.  But somehow the stars aligned and we all found each other, and I can't imagine my life before they got here.  Supportive, smart, creative women.  They're my "tribe".

This weekend a few of them are coming to Seattle and there will be shopping and eating and adventures and laughter.  Follow along on IG @mynewhappy16 to see what we're up to.

We'll definitely be choosing happiness.

I'm linking up today with Finish The Sentence Friday.  There are some wonderful prompts scheduled for the year - join in!


  1. So wish I was there! You guys have a ball! I'm going to be free to travel more now, so I may have to head west myself!! xo

  2. Oooh! Fun! Enjoy yourselves! I know you will.


  3. Aww, Lana! I'm so happy to know you! And I so wish I could be in Seattle with you lovely ladies this weekend!

  4. You girls get together so much, I think that is so awesome... especially since you all met online! Have a blast together. :)


  5. Oh Lana, you hit the nail on the head! Isn't it crazy that we have found women who support us and care so deeply through blogging? Why can't the people around me be like that? I am happy you all are getting together, I'm sure it will be a blast and you all deserve it!

  6. Awesome for you, Lana! #happiness

  7. I think that is so amazing that you have all connected and take trips to see each other! What an amazing friendship!

  8. I am enjoying the odd IG photo of your adventure and look forward to reading about it from the different perspectives. I think you wisdom really shows in this post. Sometimes it's hard to be happy but it can also be a choice.

  9. I have to admit that when I look at this photo, it makes me smile, and it reminds me to commit to my own happiness. Wonderful words of wisdom for sure! Of course, I had to stop over to Instagram to add you! Hugs and thanks so much! RO

  10. I totally feel you. I get so sick of my anxiety and fear. It's not the same living. That said, we certainly hold our own, as evident in this gorgeous photo!

  11. Yay! So much fun. Thank you for being the best hostess and feeding us lots of yummy food!

  12. What a great group of ladies! So glad you are choosing HAPPY!
