Hello, I’m Rachel!
I’m so glad you’ve decided to join me here at Choosing Happiness, which is a project I started after I unexpectedly lost both of my parents in February of 2020. I was struggling with a lot of anxiety and depression, and although I was going to therapy and taking prescribed medication, it still felt like there was something missing. And one day, after a disastrous first Mother’s Day with my mother, something clicked. I had to choose happiness, even when that choice was not easy. I started this blog shortly after that epiphany, and I have been documenting my journey of choosing happiness ever since.
