Life is simply too short for two things:
- To live unhappily.
- To sweat the small stuff.
Thus the reason for this post, I want to ensure you are all living what makes you happy. I don’t mean you are always happy and smiling, what I mean is that you are living a life that is truly, in your heart making you a happy person. For me, I haven’t been living my happy for a while, but I am able to focus on my children, my blog and my business to create the happiness inside I needed to move forward.
Finding myself in a situation where my heart wasn’t feeling what it should, I had to make a hard decision, that ultimately will change my whole family situation. This is a hard situation and no one should have to feel like this, but the hard decision has been made, the situation will be resolved and i will move on in a positive way.
The fact of life is that it’s way to short to worry as much as I have been for as long as I have been. Sometimes a situation happens in your life that places you in a position to act on a tough choice but as long as you take the time to truly think about the situation, listen to what your heart is saying and from my experience, don’t think about things and make decision when your menstrual cycle is there, because in all reality I don’t think clear during that time of month, nor can most of us.
When faced with a tough decision you need to sit down and do what is “therapy” for you, this may be counseling, it may be talking to a close friend, it may be sitting in utter silence or for me it’s writing. Writing is my therapy, so although I haven’t been writing as much as I usually do on my blog, I have been writing letters and notes all over this past week and finally have come to the realization of a decision that has been weighing me down for nearly a year now. The decision has been made, the situation will be resolved within a few weeks and already I am feeling a bit of relaxation knowing I got it off my chest and am able to move on.
So if you have anything weighing on your shoulders, be certain to think clearly about it, truly take the time to weigh your options and move forward in a way that will make yourself and your family a happier one in the long haul!
I still feel guilty, I still feel sad but in my heart I am happier than I have been in the past year. So sad to say this out loud, considering what’s about to happen in my life, but it’s true, I am actually finding my happy again because it was lost along the past year … finally my happy will return and my independent nature of taking care of myself and my children as well as optimistic thinking will make me succeed in happiness again!
Make it a Happy Day!

It is very important to focus on happiness, because life can just pass you by as you sweat the small instead of looking at what we need to do to create our own happiness and move forward. Some of the happiest people I know have had the biggest struggles but they always manage to find happiness. Some of the saddest people I know are just waiting to be happy but not taking the steps to get there, and I don’t think that they even realize it.

I am so glad that I read this today. I am going through an unhappy portion of life and I need to seek my happy again. It really affects me, my kids, and my marriage. Thank you for reminding me what’s really important.
I could have written this post myself. I too am going through a major life change that is a long time coming…and although there are times I am scared to death of what is happening…I get messages like this, that remind me that I have made the right choice.
I am grateful for having the insight to know when I am given the signs that I am doing what is right…Thank YOU for being one of those signs.

Finding happy sometimes is like a frantic search for lost keys, you forget where you put it, can never find it when you need it BUT somehow you locate it and move on.
I am proud of you for finding it by patiently looking…hugs!
