    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...

    I`m Finding It Always...

    I think one of the things that holds us back from finding happiness is feeling sorry for ourselves. Feeling like we don`t deserve to be happy, feeling like we can`t be happy, or feeling like we have never been happy. Someone once said, "Some people believe they don`t derserve...
