    Happiness...

    It's not something that you "get", it's actually something that is created. You see, happiness begins with the self, inside. No matter how many things, people, whatever you may be surrounded by, if you are not happy as an individual you will never be truly happy. So go find...

    I trying to put my life back together

    after years of being an addict and now I'm losing every thing I own. Only working part time. Looking for a full time job and bills due in two days. I hate myself for what I've done and wish I could turn it all around.

    Happiness

    A state of mind. The other day I found myself & I don't want to sound like an attention seeker, but this is where I express myself. A nervous breakdown, perhaps a tad dramatic just a moment where cried, really thought about my life from the relationships etc. I had breakfast last...

    Stop Reminding Me

    Sometimes it feels like I simply am happy, then the world grabs a hold of me and reminds me of all the terrible things in it. Why is happiness so hard to maintain?

    so simple and yet so complex

    Dumbed down and boiled down, yes, that is what I want in life. I simply want to be happy. I have grown up seeing people try to spread so much good by spreading themselves so thin, and in the end being unhappy. I made a promise with myself many years ago that I would not be like...

    Why Am I Not Happy?

    I'll tell you why I'm not happy. I'm not happy because I'm with someone that honestly, I cannot stand. But my loyalty and my selflessness is keeping me here. We have two children together and I can't seem to break myself free from his grip. It's hard trying to be a Mom with two...

    Too Much Abuse!

    I often ask myself the question what is happiness. I really don't know, I know how to survive, live from day to day. But I have horrible bouts of depression. What steps do I have to take to get the definition of happiness. I have lived in the dark now I need to go to the light.

    I feel like I can't bee happy at this moment in time. For some reason there's a barrier in the way between me and happiness. I've tried breaking that barrier, but I have yet to succeed. So many things in my life make me terribly sad that I can't imagine being happy. I know I have...

    Happiness Is ...

    It's not hard for me to be happy.  I'm not a high maintenance person nor do I have to have expensive things around me to be content.  Good friends and family, warmth perhaps accompanied by a glass of wine.  I love music, visual arts, a good movie ... something...
