    Find It Here......

    This man: http://www.barryneilkaufman.com has taught me how to be happy from within myself just by deciding to be happy and NOT unhappy. It's a choice! I spent most of my life expecting or waiting for happiness to arrive from outside of me. There is reason for this which goes...

    Unrealized Satisfaction

    I have come to the conclusion that being happy means never being completely satisfied. It is our unknown potential that fills us with satisfaction. It is the hunger for more that drives men to the best and worst of all places.
