Ready to Blog!

     Alrighty, I have never attempted anything like this before, and I'm a little nervous because I do not know where to begin. I really have never been a fan of writing... but I love reading what others have written, and that's where I have gotten my inspiration. By starting this blog, I am looking for a way to describe and express my happiness and the many reasons I have for being happy every single day. 
      "Stems of Happiness" is a sort of representation of the many things that stem my joyful and cheerful self. As silly as this sounds, it's also a symbol of my love of flowers. The first thing that came to mind, when I was trying to come up with a name for my blog about happiness, was beautiful bright flowers! I personally believe that flowers (a single flower, a bundle of flowers, a red or yellow or purple flower) can change anyone's mood quickly and effortlessly, and give them a simple sense of peace and serenity. If I can start my day by waking up feeling peaceful and calm, I can most often keep a smile on my face the rest of the day. I feel like it's so easy to get caught up in little annoyances and struggles with life, and let them get in the way of being positive. Writing about the things that make me happy and the things that make me smile, will hopefully be a constant reminder of why my "glass is half full". 
     It's the month of giving thanks, and I'd like to start my blog by really focusing on everything I'm thankful for. I have been posting about these things on Facebook for every day of November, and I've decided to go in depth with each of them on this new blog of mine. I believe I will start this tomorrow! I'm already really excited about beginning this project. I love dwelling on the things that put a smile on my face, and I am looking forward to sharing them with anyone who feels like listening. Here's a toast to my new adventure!
