i know. i know.

see i had great. intentions. with this blog.

but sometimes life takes your hand and leads you in directions that are so new and distracting that you have a hard time fulfilling your original plan.

forgive. me. please.  

what exactly is my plan you ask?

well. to inspire.  whatever that takes.

i have found that bringing inspiration to women - - in turn heals my soul.

so don't think for one moment that i am standing tall as the "all knowing" one.

that is not the case - not one bit.

i am searching just like everyone else.

starving for happiness, fulfillment, purpose.

and all those things are at hand the moment i start writing, sharing, creating.

do you find the same thing?

falling in love with life really is the key to that happiness.  as it is. no matter what.


i was going to do the "SIMPLE SCRAPBOOK" challenge that Latisha is hosting.

while i was searching through my pictures i found my journal.

i wanted to share. this.

by me.

risking wearing my heart on my it goes.

".....when asked what they want in life, most people will tell you that they just want to be happy.  the problem lies in the criteria.  i will be happy when.....if only we realized that happiness is simply a conscious CHOICE.  it is not set aside for the rich, or the beautiful, or the fulfilled  - it is plain and simply an emotion that anyone can access at anytime - regardless of circumstances.  this statement will pose some opposition.  people say - how can i be happy when....i am broke. i am sick. i am lost. - life offers up all these challenges.  happiness eludes those who don't seek it out.  i will be the first to admit that for a very long time i was NOT a "seeker of happiness". drama seemed to bring me more attention.  as the months have passed.  i have done some soul searching and in that search my most treasured find IS MY HAPPINESS.  my mornings start with thoughts of gratitude and in those thoughts my heart is happy.  NOBODY can take that away.  it is mine for the taking and i intend to take it in HUGE quantities.  it is a strange phenomenon, to realize this.  but i am not going to question it......happiness....who knew it could be that simple. 

"The world is a great mirror.  It reflects back to you what you are.  If you are loving, if you are friendly, if you are helpful, the world will prove loving, friendly and helpful to you.  The WORLD is what YOU are.
