    You are NEVER going to be happy

    Once, I Was

    I used to be so happy. My husband had always made me happy. But then, he only wanted to destroy and kill. Now, happiness comes in tiny bits and pieces. It's almost like someone has put a ban on it for me. That, for me, it's not allowed. Or that I have to grab some appointment for...

    You want to know what happiness is?

    It's waking up in the middle of the night for no reason, shifting under the blankets and feeling the heat of the person next to you. You turn around and see them in their most peaceful, innocent, and vulnerable state. They breathe as though the weight of the world lays on anyone...

    Without happiness you will never feel complete. Above all what most people want is happiness, not money, big cars or a mansion.   If you were to choose what would you choose? Happiness for me! Thanks!

    This is what most of us say everyday.

    We want to be happy. Most of us don't know what it means to be happy. We believe that happy comes in simple forms. Forms like a healthy relationship, millions of dollars, going to a completely different place in the world. We always feel like if we had that one thing we would...
