It’s the holidays.  But also, as I write this post, I feel positively joyful.

The last time I remember feeling this happy was a little over one year ago.  It seems so long ago, but a lot can change in a year. Over the course of 2011, I participated in the International Wellbeing Study and was recently emailed the results.  I watched how over the course of the year, my life satisfaction and happiness dropped, while my unhappiness rose.  I hit my lowest point on the chart about six months ago.

Since then, things have gone uphill.  I left a job where I was unhappy and felt trapped, and started a new one.  I’ve shed a third of the debt weighing me down.  I’ve been exhausted by that burden for what feels like forever to me.  So things are looking up.  I have options.  Perfect timing as I leave the old year and move into the new.

And I hope everyone has a happy holiday with their friends and families!
