Happiness And Peace Are Up To You

As an empath and co-dependant type, this is something I work on regularly – I’m worlds better  than I once was, and I’m able to hear this sentiment in my mind even during the toughest times. I’ve referred to this idea often because it’s juts so powerful. . . I remember watching Labyrinth as a […]

Find Happiness In The Moment

As the wise saying goes. . . It isn’t designed to put Life into a negative light, nor to add a sense of morbid urgency. . .but the idea is that Life – truly – is a gift. The people we love, the blessings we have. . .most of all, our own breath, are gifts. […]

Happiness. The Inside Job.

This is an incredibly powerful statement, and one which I know intimately…from all angles. A heavy hitter, 1,000%.  Make no mistake about it, these words…yes, just on their own, are Life-altering, mind-bending, Earth-shaking. I KNEW what it meant all along. I’d HEARD it a million times… I’d READ it over and over, and SEEN it throughout the years… And […]

Happy 2019!

I love resets, and January 1 represents a nice, fresh restart.  I don’t actually *believe* in New Year’s “resolutions,” though, because – while typically made in earnest and followed by a full-bore (albeit (also typically) short-lived) burst – they are so often abandoned, left to fade into the rush of life…until maybe a year later.  […]

Expectation

Expecting the best takes a lot of practice.  It takes reminders many multiple times a day… But after a time, it becomes more of a habit than it is not, and that’s when the magic starts to […]

Positive Is Perspective

I could say SO much about this amazing, wonderful, awesome quotation…but where to begin!? This was, by the way, posted by someone I’ve met in my pursuit of my passion (to help individuals with disabilities maintain a joyful, active life.) This gentleman has Cerebral Palsy and is one of the most positive people I’ve met. […]

Life Is Too Short

I believe it matters where we put our focus and energy… I work on this daily too, but it’s a nice reminder. The only thing we can control is ourselves, which basically means that the only true changes we can make (or impact) are those that apply specifically to us. Those changes can involve our […]

The Best Revenge

We’d all be lying if we said we didn’t plot revenge at some point in our lives (internally, in our minds, of course!) It seems to be human nature (and I daresay ONLY human-kind’s nature) to want to “get back” at someone for what we perceive as injustice. Doesn’t matter what it is, or frankly […]
