{Inspiration} How to Lead a Happy Life #redefininghappiness

It took me a lot of years to get to a place where I realized happiness is more about a thought process than materialistic items or what you have in life. Happiness is an emotion derived from what you have going on inside of your body, mind and soul. Happiness is something that only you can bring to your life, no one else can control your happiness. Other people may be able to affect your happiness, if you let them, but ultimately my point is that it is up to you to lead a happy life and not allow anyone […]

Taking one Step at a Time

My brain cannot function if it is held up with multiple worries and concerns. I have to focus on one piece of the pie at a time. Meaning, if life tosses me multiple things that I have to resolve, I cannot just sit back and think about this one and that one then the next one all at once. The reason is that I have three kids, two of which are extremely active boys, on top of everything that goes on in the adult world living as a responsible adult. My brain works best when I take one piece of […]

Do You Know how Hard it is ….

To sit and listen to people say awful things about you? To sit and hear that you are some huge negative person when in reality you know that you are a positive thinker and do nothing but try to spend your extra time sending positive thoughts to everyone you can,  is such a hard thing to go through.

I don’t believe they are a positive person and quite honestly nope their […]

Every single thing we do in life requires the process of thought and action. This is true with friendship, relationships and parenting or any area of life really. As a friend you can watch as another person self destructs, destroys other people’s lives or suffers from issues either past or present. Sitting back and watching is so much easier than admitting to yourself that maybe you should step up and do something […]

May Never Understand

You know since I have become a blogger and more open about most areas of my personal life it seems to some I can’t do anything right. Others seem to feel I make impulsive decisions without a thought, however, little to most people know I spend hours upon hours thinking about decisions I make and come to an end result based on three key factors: Will this affect my children in a positive away. Is this a heart felt, sane decision. Is this what I truly feel will make me happy. The end result with any decision we make in […]

Day 6: A Matter of Thinking

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less Anxious

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Become Outgoing & Less AnxiousNow that my head was clear I was able to have a free mind and train my brain to take information into it and spit it out as positive or proactive thoughts/actions. For example if I were to receive a disconnect notice for a very important bill I would not sit here in tears wondering how the heck I was going to pay for it, I would actually sit here and focus on ways I could come up with the money, payment plan options the company […]
