Happy 2012! The world's got loads of changes awaiting this year: a new U.S. presidential term, the Mayan Calendar officially ends (omg, omg I'm sooo afraid), and Facebook will finally go public.
Yet, despite any major external events, our happiness is always internally 100% our choice. It's not your boyfriend's job to make you happy. It's not your girlfriend's job to make you feel good about yourself. It's your job to choose happiness for yourself. My challenge to you guys is to let go of trying to control what others think of you in order to make space for you to be who you really are.
