Having A Purpose

Our purpose, or goal, in life, is the reason we jump out of bed each day. We don’t merely wake up. We rise to a new day’s challenge, seizing our purpose, and conquering our goals. OK, we don’t do that, at least some of us don’t. Most of us are still looking for the meaning…

Enjoy Life

Enjoy life. It’s a two-word sentence that seems impossible for most to accomplish. Face it; adulting is a downer. Bills keep coming in, and children need new clothes, and our job is just a job we try to maintain so we can pay our monthly tabs. When we search for good news, war and sickness…

It’s My Happiness And I Want It Now.

Happiness is not easy to maintain. If it were, everyone would be hunky-dory. So, why do people insist on destroying the peace of mind of others? We see how people are just down-right mean every day. Knowledge comes with understanding. So let’s look at three personalities that impact our happiness. Revenge is a dish best…

Happiness In Uncertain Times

During uncertain times happiness takes a backseat. Our current circumstances and our emotions go hand-in-hand. When a good event brings a smile to our face, its joy, but if that same event brings a coldness to our heart, it is to our dismay. It brings me to a question that I’ve been pondering. Is there…

Finding Life’s Little Things

As we wake to start our day, how many of us take the time to admire the morning moon? Something is awe-inspiring about that celestial pearl resting on a deep blue canvas. It’s one of those little things that most of us never stop to admire.  As a child, I absorbed everything around me. Life…

Forgiveness Friday? (Meh, Why Not?)

“It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an even stronger person to forgive.”Vanessa Guzman We all make mistakes. It’s a simple truth; we cannot escape. Yet, when others wrong us, we are compelled to seek retribution. Justice is the only way. No one escapes the long arm of the law. That is until…

Down and Out

Down and out: One may be down, but they are never out until they admit it. Most of us have lived long enough to realize that every day is not full of sunshine. Clouds will come and dampen the spirit. Storms will barge in and test our nerves. These are the times we must stay…

Love Family?

If a habitual liar wrote a blog about the importance of being honest, I’m sure some level of hypocrisy would shine through. This example is how I feel when writing about traditional friends and family. The only connection I have with my family is Facebook. And as for friends, I can count them on the…

COVID-19 Blues

Amid times of bad news, happiness is hard to come by. Desperation buries what little hope we desperately hold. Reports of sickness and death paint the newsroom. Drama is their business, and business is good. How does one maintain a positive attitude during these times? The mood of our environment affects our position.  We need…

Work Hard, Stay Humble

Face it, unless we have money coming from our wazoo, we need to work. We could mooch off of our friends and family. After all, everyone is eager to give to charities, right? Believe it or not, there are people with this mindset. Work is what those “other people” do. I’m sure the argument about…
