Forget your troubles, come on get happy!

I had a great, albeit short (5 years!), military career. I accomplished all of my goals, I deployed to Iraq twice, and I made true, lifelong friends. That's not too hard when you have to trust others with your life, right? :) I really thought my last day in uniform would be bittersweet, but it was truly only sweet. I have no regrets about serving; the leadership opportunities have brought me the career opportunities before me today. I also had a chance to be one of the <1% of Americans who have been in the Armed Forces, just like my father and grandfathers.
I just wouldn't be the person I am today without my experiences. And I can't remember the last time I was so happy. You know how I declared 2012 would be my year? IT IS. 2010 and 2011 just weren't. They may have been the worst.
But this is bliss. This is amazing. This is everything good coming back into my life. I feel happy.
