    I Am Battle Worn

    “I am half way gone, sleepless ~ I am battle worn.” – James Bay What do you do when you are battle worn and feel as though you just cannot fight the fight anymore?  This is where I am (or was).  I have been battle worn on and off for the last year and a half in regards to a challenging situation.  I am exhausted of the inner psychological battle, of trying so hard, of living on the edge, of not knowing what is coming next, and yet knowing something will come.  Of being blind sided just when I feel like everything is going to work out.  I won’t hide…

    It’s Good To Be Back

    Last year was by far the worst year of my life!  I was in a total fog, not able to get in touch with myself.  I knew I was here and yet I was gone.  I couldn’t get a grasp of what was going on in and around me.  I was in a downward tailspin desperately trying to hold on.  I just kept sinking.  I knew which way was up but I was afraid.  I was afraid of expressing my grief and heartache because I didn’t want to feel it anymore than what I already was.  I was afraid to express my unhappiness and disillusions.  I was even afraid to…

    Only You Know Why

    Sometimes we lose our way.  Sometimes we revert back to old negative patterns of behavior.  Why?  Only you know why.  At first you may not even realize it.  You may chalk it up to a bad day.  But before you know it, that bad day is now a bad month(s) or a bad year(s).  Then one day you wake up with that god awful feeling in the pit of your stomach.  You wake up seeing the truth ~ you have no clue who you are anymore.  You are destroying your life.  You lay there wondering how you got to where you are.  You wonder what happened to you.  You ask…

    Every Choice You Make Has An Outcome

    Every choice we make ends up somewhere.  It doesn’t matter what it is, there is always an outcome.  You may or may not see it or feel it, but it is there.  Even the littlest of choices such as the type of toilet paper you buy will have an outcome.  You will end up with a happy tush or an unhappy tush depending on the type of toilet paper you chose to buy.  If you choose to turn left instead of right this could cause you the opportunity to see the sunset and what a beautiful outcome that would be!  The choice I made today to paint my fingernails has a…

    Do You Have Inner Freedom

    Inner freedom is the illumination of all that we are.  It has an untouchable power and positive energy force that guides us throughout our personal journey.  It keeps us in tune with the greater part of who we truly are, with our Inner Life. Inner freedom is being totally free from negativity, pain and unhappiness. You do not have inner freedom when you are twisted in knots or bound by your outer life afflictions, or if you are filled with any level of discomfort. If you want inner freedom you have to let go of all the turbulence in your life.  It doesn’t matter if it’s in the past or in…

    Are Your Beliefs Creating Heartache and Unhappiness

    I was thinking today about how powerful our beliefs can be.  They can control how we perceive other people and the world we live in, influence our future, and affect our every day lives.  Beliefs can take us higher, make us happier, work for us, and keep us in tune with our Inner Life.  But, they can also take us lower, make us unhappy, work against us, and keep us out of tune with our Inner Life.  Obviously it is beneficial to have a positive set of beliefs ~ but what if we don’t.  What if our beliefs are creating heartache and unhappiness.  Let’s take for instance a person who doesn’t…

    Trust Your Gut Instincts

    We have all heard the old saying “follow your gut”, but how often do you actually do it?  I recently learned a tough lesson by not following, or should I say not trusting my gut instincts.  It doesn’t necessary mean I made a mistake, for there was a lot of joy and happiness in this experience and lesson. However, there could have been a lot of pain and negativity avoided if I would have trusted my instincts. With every choice and every decision my gut knew, but I went against it anyways, always to land upside down.  The question is ~ why did I go against my gut?  Perhaps I…

    And So It Shall Be …..

    So yes, I have been totally out of sorts, and that is putting it mildly.  Swirling around and around, stumbling as I fall, until I can’t see not a thing ~ not even what is right in front of me.  I know I have been allowing unwanted life experiences engulf me into the shadows of sadness and darkness.  And I know without a shadow of a doubt how to not allow unwanted life experiences control me.  However, as human as a human can be, even I, your Truly Happy Leap Like A Frog “Guru” got stuck.  I got stuck in the boundaries of my outer life, leaving behind the one…

    The Hole In My Heart

    The only thing I want is to be sad and cry whenever I feel like it.  I don’t want to hide it, put on a smile, and pretend everything is okay.  It hasn’t even been three months since I lost my sister.  This isn’t about her death, it’s about missing her – plain and simple.  It feels like there is a hole in my heart the size of the ocean and I am at the bottom trying to get to the top.  But I can’t get to the top because I don’t know which way to go.  There is nothing anyone can say that I don’t already know.  I know…

    The True Way of Forgiveness

    Although I would prefer to live a life completely filled with joy, happiness and peace, we all know it is nearly impossible.  We all know there will be life experiences that hurt us, make us angry, take us to our knees, or leave us completely torn and breathless.  Some of the most difficult experiences come from our relationships and learning forgiveness.  Just recently, a very wonderful and wise man in my life reminded me of the true way of forgiveness. When a life experience calls for forgiveness, more than likely we have made it quite clear what this person did to hurt US.  More than likely we spoke without love,…
