    It's up to you to be happy

    and ooze the indescribable joy within you. Own your happiness, hold it in your heart, absorb it, breathe it, just be it. And smile serenely....

    Pay it Forward

    I thought my life was so smooth sailing. I can't ask for anything more. But the turning point in my life began in May 2008. Everything turned upside down. For two years, I had nothing but courage and the will to go on though I felt like being thrown away to a pit where I cannot...

    He married me when I was

    so young. Why did he become so cruel? Rarely touching me, anger dominated, harsh words abound. I never really understood. Confused and frustrated, I kept quiet and lived in fear. Always, I took great care of myself, dressed up for him, all to no avail. I was invisible. Still...

    And when you feel vulnerable

    and a little scraped... Remember it happens to us all but we have to keep our minds high, our thoughts positive and our attitudes beautiful So we can later feel the great benefits of purely being great and precious all in one.
