The happiest moment of my life was when I allowed myself to enjoy something

In the latest episode of #CNNTurnaround, I got a little braver. I gave myself permission to walk through the doors of CNN. I’ve been smoking crack; this was a breather. I felt relieved; this was the first time in a while I had not been completely hemmed in by my own dissatisfaction.

I am literally changing my mood at a moment’s notice, whether it’s with my Spotify playlist, without it, my favorite tv show, or whatever else brings me solace.

The happiest moment was when I turned on my computer and checked my Facebook newsfeed and saw that both my husband and I were feeling happy. My husband had just said to me, “I love watching you on Twitter. I laugh when you joke about us being a s**t couple. You read, I comment. We really are friends with benefits.” And although we have made no commitment to each other in that regard, he is as close to a friend as we will ever get. And to see that I had already joked about those “friends with benefits” with my husband made me feel so much better.
