Secret to Happiness

What is the secret of happiness? Is it really a secret that is hidden and kept from us or do we hide from it feeling unworthy? Truthfully, I believe the latter to be true. Very few individuals are truly happy, having found a peace that eludes the mass majority of humans.  WE tend to live…

Feelings…

Feelings have to be one of the most fragile of all the things.  So simple that they can be hurt by a look, single word, or an image, yet are so complicated in the way they heal.  For some, it may take a lifetime for hurt to heal, for the pain of the flame to…

Make it a Great Day!

Pre-dawn. The time of peace and solitude when the moon has gone to bed and the sun has yet to wake up. When the trees and plants are still asleep, moist with dew and creatures of all sizes are holding on to the last few moments of slumber.  Cool and calm, it is a perfect…

For everything there is a season…

To coin a popular 1965 song by The Byrds, ‘For everything there is a season.’ Life,  love,  relationships,  status, and everything in between.  Just when you think you have a handle on things,  Boom! Seasons change.  Spring is in full bloom and the next thing you know,  the leaves are falling.  Where did summer go?…

A Better Footing

There is some thing about sitting in the sun,  on a beach, listening to the crashing of the waves that brings about clarity. Lucidity of thoughts, soul, and mind. A renewing of sorts that melts away all the junk collected during the week, months,  or years that is gained by few other environments. For me, …

A New Normal

Ever had the brakes put on suddenly in life only to crash anyway?  Or feel like you ran face smack into a unforgiving wall of brick and mortar?  The thing about those ‘accidents’ is that life never goes on as it was.  Whether it was a loss of life, job layoff or termination, or maybe…

Time traveler wanna-be?

Today is National Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day. My question… why must we set aside only one day a year for this.  At what point must we lose the innocence and wonder to pretend to be a time traveler everyday like when we were young.  As a self proclaimed ‘Whovian’, I say NAY!…

Have you found your picker-upper?

Are you somebody’s picker-upper? Clothes putter-awayer? Cabinet and drawer closer? Do you do it out of love or must? If you answered must, then maybe you should not be in that relationship. Do they do the same for you in other areas?  Seriously, if the answer is no… then run, baby, run! If they do…

Time flies

Most have heard the expression ‘Time flies when you are having fun.’ It seems life in general has a way of flying by.  So often we are caught up in the day to day that we fail to stop and enjoy the small things.  A child’s laugh, the warm snuggles of our pets,  the soft…

Switching gears…

In life, as in riding a bike it is sometimes difficult to decide when to switch gears. You move along until it feels right, then can switch gears slightly, bringing on more challenge and stretching of muscles.  However, there are times when the gears switch a bit too violently and you almost fall off the…
