    Today Is

    My birthday. And it's no different from any other day. Not special at all. Pay the bills do some chores and go back to work. But I am definitely thankful for my family and another year.

    I don't always tend to talk about the happiest

    things on my stories, but I'd like a change in theme for once. Even though there's some really bad stuff going on with my mental health, I would say most everything else seems to be rather well. I have a decent job, and am told that I am very good at it... I had a psychotic...

    I Am Done Waiting To Arrive At Happiness...

    So many of us seem to delay happiness because we haven't achieved the things we want to achieve or we are not where we want to be or we're simply waiting for circumstances to be ideal before we allow ourselves to be happy. I was just like that, believing there exists a certain...

    Happy Thoughts

    Yesterday, I went to see my therapist. And she was happy to see progress in my very unstable emotional state before she started seeing me. With that said, I was sort of proud of myself. For the past week, I have been trying to figure out what actually makes me sad and what makes...

    I Am Happy ...

    Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and numbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy. Hamlin Garland
