    The Twists and Turns of Trust

    What is it about trust that gets us so tied up in knots?  I know I have had my share of trust issues, a few of which I still need to lay to rest.  However, life has become easier and more peaceful since I came to the realization of what trust issues really are and where they come from.  In simple terms, trust issues are evil monsters that control us because we allow them to.  We allow them to run amuck 24/7 not giving ourselves a fighting chance to let go and move on.  They are the little mind monsters that remind you over and over again how someone hurt…

    Gratitude Is More Than Saying Thank You

    Gratitude is more than just saying thank you.  It is truly being and feeling grateful for all that you are, all that you are becoming, and all that you have. We tend to take things and people for granted when at anytime we could lose them. When you practice gratitude on a daily basis it not only keeps you in tune with your Inner Life, but it takes the focus off of the negative aspects of your life.  Feeling gratitude creates positive energy that flows out into the Universe bringing you more things to be grateful for. Feeling and being grateful for even the smallest of things will yield great benefits.…

    Happiness Is Not Complicated

    Being happy is not complicated nor is life, we just choose to complicate it.  We complicate it with our past, our future, negative thinking and/or our beliefs.  However, when you live through your Inner Life these things cease to exist because they are a figment of your imagination.  They are what your mind is thinking, not who you are.  You are the present moment and you are true happiness – pure – positive – plain and simple! True happiness is the internal stable presence of unconditional love, peace, harmony, abundance and well-being.  It exists under any and all circumstances.  This does not mean you won’t experience negative emotion, because you will.  It just means…

    How Bad Do You Want It?

    How bad do you want to be happy ~ to live in happiness instead of pain?  How bad do you just want to break open and free yourself from all the things you know in your heart are causing you unhappiness, sadness, grief, depression or pain?  When is enough going to be enough ~ what is it going to take for you to wake up and see what’s happening?  To see how much time you are wasting ~ precious time ~ time you will never ever be able to get back.  Do you have to completely lose yourself before you realize, before you see? Do you truly and deeply, more…

    Telling the Truth About Yourself to Yourself

    I know all too well from past experience what unhappiness feels like and how it can destroy not only your sense of peace and well-being but your health and life experiences.  I also know what true happiness feels like and how it enhances your sense of peace, well-being, improves your health and creates joyous life experiences.  The hardest part for me, into my journey toward true happiness, was telling the truth about me.  Writing down who I was at that moment in time, how I felt about myself, and the things I was doing to create my miserably unhappy life.  This journaling process did in fact create some pain, but…

    Run With the Positive Possibilities

    When was the last time you ran with the positive possibilities of an unwanted situation?  As human beings, we have a tendency to allow our outer life situations affect us in a negative way. We allow them to take us down, turn us around, and control who we become, sometimes for a lifetime.  But, my question is why?  Why do we deprive ourselves of happiness just because something went awry?  What is so wrong with being happy no matter what is going on?  Do you truly believe being happy is going to make things worse? I do understand, from personal experience, how difficult it can be to feel good when it…

    Where Are Your Mistakes

    So you made some mistakes ……. where are they now?  We have all made mistakes and we will ALL continue to make mistakes.  No matter how big or how small, how major or how minor, a mistake is only a mistake.  We are the ones who put meaning to it, just like we are the ones who control how long they will affect us and our lives. There are way too many people in the world who live IN their mistakes.  They punish themselves over and over again with self-sabotaging behaviors because of something they did in the past.  Every mistake you have ever made is in the past whether…

    What Is Your Happiness

    Like you, I search the internet for useful information.  One thing I have taken notice to is how many “steps” there are to achieving happiness or anything else for that matter. I don’t know about you, but if I were to try to follow 10 – 30 steps of anything I’d be exhausted before I even got started!  Now don’t get me wrong, the information may be useful but it is all too overwhelming especially for someone who is trying to overcome a struggle or achieve a specific goal. I do understand wanting to share what “works” especially when the advice comes from personal experience, but what about making it simple.…

    You Define You, Not the Past

    Some say the negative experiences of our past define who we are, but I am not sure if I believe this.  I am who I am because I choose to be.  Giving your past all the credit gives it power.  It holds you in a place that doesn’t always allow you to move forward.  It keeps you living in fear because you don’t ever want to go back to “those days” so you live in the confines of what you think will keep you safe from the past.  While at the same time you are also keeping yourself away from what life truly has to offer you. Yes, there are…

    A Happy Life Starts With You

    A happy life starts with you, just as an unhappy life starts with you ~ no one else, just you.  You are the one who controls how you feel about anything and everything, which in turn controls how life is going to feel to you.  Let’s say you are having a bad day.  From the moment your feet hit the floor nothing seems to go the way you want it to.  You are faced with one unwanted situation after another and before you know it you are caught up in a tunnel of frustration, irritation, stress, anxiety, negativity and maybe even anger.  If you keep living and re-living where you…
