The Importance of being happy.

So...I've been on a roll lately. Little Fabulous One has been cracking the whip and I'm proud to say that this is the probably the most seamless my writing has been in a long time.

Then why the title of this blog you may ask? After a great day of edits, I had dinner with family and sat down to watch a movie that I've been wanting to see for the last few years. I had to turn it off after twenty-five minutes.

You see, the story line dealt with issues that although true, tend to weigh heavily on the heart. Instead of basking in the glow of what I hope will be a NY sale for me, the trials and tribulations of the movie's characters began to bring about feelings of sadness and bewilderment.

With that said, I've made a vow. Until this book is finished, I will refrain from reading, watching or listening to anything that does not uplift my spirit or enrich my soul.

I won't be down for long though. On Thursday we are going to the movies to watch 'Four Christmases' and then on Friday Little Fabulous One arrives for the weekend bringing a whirlwind of fabulosity and cheer. Then, as if that isn't enough, on Saturday my BFF arrives. (She will be known from now on as Latina Diva) So the wine, laughter and goodwill will be flowing here in my household and I can't wait to indulge.

Can you tell that I simply adore my friends? In the past few years, I have found that it is imperative to have people around you who will be happy for you as you strive to accomplish your goals. Since embarking on this writing journey, I've made some amazing friends and unfortunately lost a few. These two have been there for me when I needed them the most and I only hope that one day I can return the favor.

What are your wishes for 2009? Mine are quite simple. I'd like continued health and happiness for my family, a NY sale (or two, or three :) ) and for all my friends to have their wishes come true.

Have a great night everyone! May happiness find you wherever you may be.

Look at you go, girl! I'm sure that everyone learns from a harsh critique partner. If you don't have a thick skin, you won't survive the publishing business. I think that if it's constructive you will have so much to learn from and perfect. I'm sure 2009 is going to be awesome!!!! I don't watch much tv because I don't want to be influenced by it. Hope the weekend will be a BLAST :)

Wonderful post! I need to work on only keeping things in my life that make me happy. That's a good goal. Have fun this weekend!

I'm like you. Lately I can't read or watch anything depressing. Life is tough enough ;)
