I have everything I need
I have the power to love, to heal, and to grow. I need nothing else. I am not driven by worldly possessions or the affections of others. I exist to give rather than to take. My love is infinite, so I give it out freely without need for reimbursement. The less that I own, the freer I am.

I do not wait for happiness to find me. I cultivate happiness and love and express it outwardly, even in the face of fear. I have the power within me to let my happiness and joy shine outward, unblocked by uncertainty.

I am a voice for peace
In all my actions and words, I speak for peace. I am an ambassador of peace and acceptance and compassion to myself and toward others. In everything I do, I take responsibility for my duty to create peace on this earth, and to share it and teach it to others. I practice peace deep within myself.

I am in control of my actions and emotions
Though I cannot control what happens to me, I can control my reactions. I am in control of how I treat and speak to others, and whether I take their comments and opinions personally. I am in control of what I share and give outwardly, and I choose to share love even during conflicts.

I am open
I am open to pain and to joy. I am open to the truth that I don’t have all the answers, nor do I need to have them. I am open to the universe revealing itself everywhere, all the time, even in unexpected places. I am open to possibility, to miracles, to the great surprises that life has to offer.

I will feed my soul, and allow it to bloom
I vow to feed my creativity, to fuel my curiosity. and drink good . I vow to listen to inspiring music, to learn new skills and lessons . I , to honor my body, and be loving. I vow to have fun night, and get rest taking glorious naps in the afternoon sun. more . I vow to cook delicious meals for my family, to take my vitamins, to practice yoga whenever I feel like it. To speak kind words to myself. To indulge in new passions. And through it all, I vow to allow my soul to speak outwardly with excitement and abundant bliss. Because life is so short, and every day should be celebrated.


The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.


“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Personal Information:
Happiest at the ocean ...with my best friend and life partner

Attaining lasting happiness requires that we enjoy the journey on our way toward a destination we deem valuable. Happiness is not about making it to the peak of the mountain nor is it about climbing aimlessly around the mountain; happiness is the experience of climbing toward the peak.



Other Information:
I am a writer..living a minimalist lifestyle with gratitude. I battle depression..I am caregiver to my husband who has dementia.. it has been the fight of my (our) life

I have learned that..

You can't go back and change an experience.
You can't make it 'unhappen.'

But you can change how you feel in this moment... about that experience.

You can change how you perceive that experience.
You can change what meaning you give that experience and what suffering or joy you create long after the experience has passed.

    "Just because something works for someone else doesn't mean that same strategy done the same way will work for you.
    Take good ideas and enhance them.
    Build on them and tweak them to fit you and your situation.
    You are no carbon copy so copying won't work for you.
    Do what best suits you. "
