    Ask Yourself – How Do I Want To Feel Today?

    Now that the new year has descended upon us, let’s start it off with a question that will change your life ~ how do I want to feel today?  Obviously no one wants to feel sad, depressed, angry, stressed, anxious or unhappy.  Too often we carry yesterday’s worries and woes into the next day until one day we realize we are living the same life over and over again, year after year.  You CAN change this!  You CAN have the life you dream of.   If you want to create more joy, abundance, and true happiness in your life, ask yourself every day upon waking how you want to feel…

    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…

    Taking Complete Responsibility for Your Life Changes Your Life

    There was a time when I would not take responsibility for the unwanted experiences overpowering my life.  It was very difficult for me to be honest with what was going on and where I was.  When it got to the point where I felt like everything was spinning out of control, I knew something had to change.  I knew the only way to change my life was to take control of it.  This meant taking complete responsibility for my life, not only for where I was, but for where I wanted to go.   There was no more blaming the world or others for my problems or mistakes, it was…

    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…

    This Was Then

    I laid on the edge of my bed like an infant, slightly quivering.  I could only feel my aching soul.  My pain began to seep out of my eyes.  I prayed to God to comfort me, to take me in His arms, to protect me, and to give me enough love that would change my life.  I knew I was gone. “It” had taken me from all those that loved me but I could not see.  I was blind to the outside world, I was numb to emotion.  I was in my own self-made prison. My pain was so great from “it” that death began to intrigue me.  Laying on…

    The Next Chapter, Turn the Page

    It’s hard to imagine the next chapter in your life when you have been captured by what you believe to be your only reality. Things are not going the way you want them to, you don’t have the things you want, you are struggling financially, you feel as though life has turned you inside out, and now you can’t see past the next day, let alone the next minute. You are sad, depressed, unhappy, stressed, frustrated and angry. You try to feel better but you can barely make it to the front door. Your thoughts are consumed with negativity and hopelessness. The light you once followed has burned out with…

    Do Your Words Enhance Your Joy & Happiness

    Have you ever thought about how your words affect your health, happiness and overall well-being?  Think about it for a moment ~ how you express yourself is no different than the food you put into your body.  It will either make you feel better or it will make you feel worse.  Words could very easily be just words, but rarely they are.  They are always tied to a positive or negative feeling.  It is those feelings that will, in the end, contribute to the creation of your own reality, all inclusively.  A good example would be when you are driving.  How often do you find yourself using choice words toward…

    Their Path Is Not Wrong, It’s Just Theirs

    It hurts to see someone we love struggle with life especially when we know what it feels like.  One of the greatest things I have learned throughout my journey is that everyone is on their own unique path.  No matter where they are or what they are doing, their path is not wrong, it’s just theirs.  It’s theirs to do whatever they want to do with it – good or bad.  When we see someone struggling, we sometimes have the tendency to step off our path and onto theirs.  In our effort to help, we put ourselves to the side, but in the end, it doesn’t help them and it…
