Learn to be happy – and to share your happiness! It is OK…

It's interesting, isn't it, that since I found "happiness" I don't write anymore? Or at least I haven't written in a while. Not for lack of starting blog posts - quite a few actually, over the last 3-4 months - most of them in my head but some of them also on paper. Or on … Continue reading Learn to be happy – and to share your happiness! It is OK…

I’d rather be happy than high….

I haven't been this happy in a long, long time. I used to be afraid of addressing my depression, because I liked my highs more than I detested my lows. Or at least I thought I did. I thought (or told myself as a means to avoid dealing?) that if I'd address and get rid … Continue reading I’d rather be happy than high….

It’s time to buy the ticket and take the ride!

Not sure how I would feel about, or manage, all the … Continue reading Life is too short

And since I got back from my trip I haven't been able to write. Partially because I have been really … Continue reading The path to happiness

A letter to my Dad

For many years, before I decided to deal with all of my "issues", I have struggled with what causes me to feel like this. To be like this. Why can't I be happy [like everyone else]? Why do I have to keep battling anxiety attacks and depression? Why can't I just be "normal"? I have … Continue reading A letter to my Dad

How to deal with the unexpected and disappointment.

Some people say "when life brings you lemons, you make lemonade" and I have heard a couple say "when life brings you lemons you bring out the tequila". But I won't do that. I am past dealing with shitty things in life by trying to numb the pain with alcohol, or any other substance for … Continue reading How to deal with the unexpected and disappointment.
