Genuine Happiness

The majority of my life I struggled with being happy.  For a time I thought different achievements would mean I was happy.   I listened to what others said would make me happy.    Desperate to be happy, I listened to them and did what everyone told me that would make me happy.   I was desperately unhappy …

A litle patience perhaps?

We all want it now.   The immediacy of the internet has created a connection that we can find out anything we want instantly.   Like not all answers can be found using Google, it is also important to understand that everything takes time.  Things we desire do not happen instantly.   Some times there is …

The joy is in the journey….

I will admit it, this is deeply personal.  This is a struggle I have and it is not the easiest thing to do.  Especially when you have delays along the way.  Complete frustration and total heartbreak is hard.  It is not easy when we want something so badly that we focus so much on that …

For those that are like me….

I saw this quote and it made so much sense to me.  Somewhere out there is someone looking for someone just like me.   I have created a place on the internet that they can find me.   My thoughts forever written down and accessible to those that need it when they need it.    Much like the …

What do you want? Ask for it! Go after it!

  Fear is an ugly emotion. It colors our world in drab gray.  It stops us from being fully happy.   Why we allow fear so much power in our decisions I will never really understand.   It stops you from living in joy.   Joy that we are meant to experience. So instead of having regret why …
