{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 […]

Things I Do To Keep my Positive Mind on Track

Life can get quite overwhelming at times for even the most positive of people, we are tested each day in our strengths and weaknesses to grow more as an individual person.

I watch someone, like the boyfriend, sweep the bedroom floor… He looks to be doing it rather daintily not really putting any arm strength into it and getting the dirt in the dust pan? OH my goodness! I literally had to bite my lip, […]

I Want to be Different

Over this past week of school vacation my daughter has been wearing quite the “interesting” choice of clothing.  She has worn such things as pants that are way too short for her, stripes with plaid, and other such mis-matched type choices or clothing selections that she has clearly grown out of.  One day I finally called her out on her outfit choices, wondering why anyone would want to wear pants that are too short for them baffled me.

I will  discuss topics that almost any relationship may have come up here and there, but there will no longer be any personal posts regarding the status of relationships at a personal level. The reason I came to this decision was because I wasn’t realizing that me being insanely open and outspoken online could potentially hurt people’s feelings and well honestly I don’t want to be on a reality television show so why would I treat […]
