Feeling Convicted

I felt convicted yesterday as I read this post from the "I Am Mommy" blog.
Side note--I'm fully aware that you are judging me right now for reading the "I Am Mommy" blog in the first place.

These words resonated with me all day:

"I want my blog to be a source of happiness, honesty, and inspiration... not me complaining about every single little things that goes wrong.  And when I feel that critical spirit encroaching into my speech and thoughts, I try to limit my interaction with the world."
While I definitely want my blog to be a source of happiness, honesty, and inspiration, more importantly, I want to see those qualities in myself. 
Between working busy days at the bank, the work load from school, and doing a million other things each day, my blog has taken a back seat lately. It's probably for the best. I have been filled with negative emotions that I can't seem to shake, which is completely unacceptable. 
Life is too short to be anything but happy. 
Some things that make me really happy?
 My friends. What would I do without you? 

My coffee creamer. What would I do without you?
I'm going to make a more dedicated effort to be my happy, smiling, cheerful self--in my real world and my virtual world. My best self
I know no other way to go about this other than turning to God--the only source of true happiness in the entire world. I recently purchased a book called The Power of a Praying Woman. I'll let you know how it is! I know that setting aside time each day to thank God and pray always puts me in a better mood. But much like exercising, I know it is good for me, but I still don't have much motivation to do it!
Please bear with me these next few months (and hopefully these next four years) if I moan and gripe about how stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted I am.
And know that I'm trying not to complain.
"Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear." Ephesians 4:29
