When I was seventeen, I dropped out of high school. For me this was not a good choice, and as time went on I regretted not finishing school. In 1999, five years after I dropped out, I decided to get my GED. The day the mail came and I opened up the envelope with my GED inside of it, I was the happiest person on the planet. I called everyone I knew to let them know I would be having a cap and gown ceremony. Words cannot describe the joy I felt at knowing that I had finally finished school. This day will be a day that I never forget.
The next event in my life that I felt overwhelming bliss was the day I got married. June 7, 2000, is the day I married the man of my dreams. I was overcome with a variety of feelings that day ranging from nervousness to sheer bliss. When I stood across from my new husband, and heard the minister say "you may now kiss your bride" I felt like the luckiest woman in the world. Happiness is not just a feeling, it is a choice, and that day I chose to be happy.
Six months after I got married, I had the happiest day of my life. This was December 14, 2000, the day I gave birth to my son. When the day began I was afraid, I did not know what to expect, I had never done this before. On that Thursday afternoon at 2:28 p.m., I had my son, and all the fear I had turned into the purest happiness I had ever experienced. After giving birth I knew that nothing would be able to top the feelings of joy and bliss that day brought me. For me becoming a mother is the best feeling I ever had.
In the end, happiness for me came in different forms. Through each of my experiences I felt different kinds of happiness....
