    Waiting to be Happy

    You are not alone in your quest to be happy but haven’t you waited long enough? There are thousands upon thousands of people in our world today who are waiting to be happy.  They think happiness comes from things when in fact we were all born with and as happiness. Happiness is not something that needs to be achieved.  It is something that is already a natural part of who you are. Unfortunately too many of us become separated from the truer part of who we are.  This is through no fault of our own; it is just something that happens through our upbringing, beliefs, and perceptions. Take a few…

    Frogs With Your Fries

    I was completely taken aback when I saw frog legs on the menu of a very nice restaurant I was dining at here in Modesto.  All I could think about were those happy little frogs jumping around without a care in the world until their sudden death!  Yes I am aware that frog legs are offered in many restaurants but if you know who I am and what I am about, you will understand why this was so disheartening to me.  My life is about The Frog, hence Leap Like A Frog!  But that is not what this blog is about – at least not directly.  In a round-about way…

    Just Be You for the Sake of Happiness

    Just be YOU!  When you choose to be YOU, you show the world your natural, unpainted, genuine self.  You comfortably share who you really are with those around you.  Living through YOU makes you feel alive and connected to all that is. You honestly and openly share your personality and respond to life in harmony as who you truly are.  You follow your heart toward your own dreams and desires and live by your own morals and standards.  Like a light shining in the darkness, you allow others to see you completely. Some would refer to us as “real”. When you choose to be someone other than who you truly…

    The Journey Back to You

    There will be times in your life when you experience feelings of unhappiness toward something or someone in your life or from your own personal beliefs about yourself.  These feelings are only temporary.  They are nothing more than a brief separation from who You really are.  Once you get back to You everything and everyone in your life will fall easily and effortlessly into place.  Your life will turn in the direction you want it to go, guaranteed.  Understanding who You really are and why you are here is the first step in your journey back to You.  The easiest part to understand is that you chose to be born…

    Live Your Life Happily

    Living your life happily, in your own way, does not make you selfish, it makes you healthy.  Over the years I have been surprised at the number of people who live their lives through what others want, need or expect from them, not to speak of what they THINK someone wants, needs or expects.  They feel an innate obligation to do for others, in a way that ends up stealing their own happiness.  Why do we do this?  We do it because we believe it is the right thing to do, but I have to ask, who is it right for?  It is not right for you if it causes…

    Don’t Let It Affect Your Today

    Every day is a new day; a new beginning if you choose.  What happened yesterday no longer matters unless you want it to matter.  Some of us wake with dread due to things we have said or done the day before we are not proud of.  Some of us wake with dread over things we have not said or done that we know we should have.  Regardless of what you have done or not done, don’t let it affect your today.  Move on with a positive attitude and a renewed spirit. When the negative energy of regret is carried around it will eventually build on itself.  It will stop you…

    Letting Go of Emotional Pain

    The mind creates emotional pain through the thoughts it thinks.  These thoughts come from your resistance to “what is”.  The more intense your pain, the more you are resisting the present moment.  Never will you find emotional pain in the present moment.  In reality the pain you are suffering is just an illusion created by the mind.  However, because many of us allow our minds to control our emotions we live with this unnecessary pain.  This is the same as living outside your-self; outside the present moment. You are and will always be the present moment, but you may not always be in tune with it.  The present moment is…
