Happiness From the Heart


A2Z-BADGE-0002014-small_zps8300775c

In your life you have many challenges and obstacles that you have to face. Whether you want to or not it is a part of life. People seem to think that happiness is found by having money, fast cars or anything else that they might want out of life. However, sure having money would lighten the load, and take some stress off but in the end when all that money is gone where are you going to be?

I may not have money, a nice car, fancy things or everything that I want. The things that I do have is a loving family, a home to call our own, a good job, and just about everything that I could ever need at this point in my life. My children, and husband are the most important part of my life right now. Some things are just not that important to people and having lots of money is one of those things it cannot buy love or happiness. Well it can buy love and happiness if you are willing to go into debt for the rest of your life. It is true that life sometimes brings some unexpected surprises and there is nothing that you can do about it but work through those unexpected surprises no matter what the cost.

She has this question come up a lot from people. What do you give up for your children? Well the answer is quite simple we give up a lot for our children because they are the most important part of our lives. When you are a parent you cannot just take off when you feel like it, buy what you want without making sure that your children have what they need or make them go without food, water, shelter or clothes just because you found something that you want. That is not being a parent! We give up a lot because our children are the most important thing to us right now. Finding happiness in the world takes one thing and that is looking at your children and watching them become the young adults that they should be in this world. They need to know that everything does not come easy and that they cannot have everything that they want out of life unless they have a good paying job.

She watches as parents buy everything that their children want regardless of whether they have the money or not. That is giving your children the wrong aspect of the world because when they finally grow up they are going to think that they can have and do anything that they want without regards to the consequences of their actions.

So our happiness is to spend time with our family in our home. We may not have cable television, the latest game consoles, the biggest televisions or anything else. We have our love and unconditional support as a family. We make sure that we have the things that we need and everything else is optional. Unless we strike it rich from the lottery we will continue to live our life the way that we do. We do not need much except for the essential things in life.

Everyone is different and have different expectations of how they want to live their life and that is their choice. If they are happy with the way their life is going then they have found happiness in the world.

Of Course, we want more out of life but good things come to those who wait. She knows that things will work in their favor, and the wait will be worth it in the end.

Go For Your Dreams

Go For Your Dreams

You know this writing challenge has turned out to be a wonderful experience in so many ways and we are just starting it!

In life you have to reach for the stars going after your dreams and making those dreams a reality. Some people feel like they do not have the talent, skills, knowledge or opportunity to accomplish those dreams. However, people do have the skills, knowledge, talent, and the opportunity to make their dreams come true. You have to be willing to make the sacrifices to obtain the career or life that you want. You cannot rely on the rest of the world to help you to accomplish your dreams, aspirations or the future of your career.

Having a career, family, time to yourself, and many other things in your life cannot stop you from achieving the goals and dreams that you have set out for your life. There are many things that people want out of their life like a home, a solid career, a loving family, a support team, and the feeling that they have accomplished something in their life.

These can be found if you search your heart and soul. You have to want something out of your life without having a crutch for the rest of your life. Sometimes these things in your life require taking risks that you normally would not take because of the outcome. However, by taking risks we find the things that we are capable of dealing with each and everyday of our life. Everything that we do in our life revolves around the risks that may be involved with those actions, thoughts, money, bank accounts, loans, and anything else that your life has.

Without the possibility of achieving the goals or dreams that we have set forth in our life we will not become the person we are supposed to be. You know I took a risk of going to college, and building up that debt that comes along with going to college in the hope that I would find a job within the field that I decided to go with. However, the economy lapsed which meant that the jobs in that field were no longer available. Furthermore, not giving up I still believe that I will achieve the goal of having the job that I desire.

You are a teacher to your children the most important people in your life. They look to you to provide them with the inspiration to go for their dreams no matter the risk. I have faith that one day my dreams will come true. For the most part my family has received everything that they could ever want out of life at the moment. I was always told that good things come to those who wait. I stand by this because it has proven to be true.

Hugs, laughter and smiles

We have all heard that laughter is the best medicine and I have always tried to live by that motto.  Even through my breast cancer ordeal, I tried my best of find humor to keep my attitude in check.  I believe I am one of the lucky people who have the ability to laugh at themselves and at dire situations.  Laughing seems to lighten the pain for myself at least.  Yes I get strange looks when I make light of a bad situation but if it gets me and my family through tough, stressful times, them I’m laughing as much as possible.

As my friend said yesterday, she too is fighting the Machine.  Like us this week, we have turmoil and stress in our lives because of  the actions of others in which we have no control.  Totally stressed for the biggest part of two days, missing one evening of…

Losing Touch with Old Friends


This is my Opinion about friends, and Acquaintance’s.

This is for you my dear friends, thanks for all your kind and generous support! I will be back on flickr on the 9th of August 2010. Have all a wonderful time ahead! Thank you all so much! My Graditude and warm wishes to you all my friends! 🙂

Well in some way’s this is a hard question to answer. However, in my opinion I used to have friends through highschool, and have made some acquaintance’s throughout my life. Many of whom I do not consider friends. Let’s define the meaning’s of each shall we. A friend is a person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. There is not many people that I trust with anything in my life except for my family. Other people who say that they are your friends will talk about you behind your back to other people that they call friends. So everything that you say ends up all across the neighborhood, or even sometimes in another town. The definition goes on to say that a friend is a person whom one knows; an acquaintance. There are many acquaintance’s that I have had over the thirty-four years but the only one’s that I think of as friends are the one’s that stick behind my actions and is there for me when I need them the most. All these friends that I have had over the years were not there when I needed someone the most. Furthermore, the definition goes onto say that a friend is one who sympathizes with, supports, or patronizes a group, cause, or movement. When friends say they are friends they are interested in what you have to say. A true friend will always be there in your times of joy, happiness, sorrow, pain, and so on. The French use the word Moname which means a true friend someone that is there for you when you need it the most.

Now let’s look at the definition of acquaintance which, states that an acquaintance is knowledge of a person that is less intimate than friendship. This means that they acknowledge that you are there but could really care less about your life, and what you do with it. Some acquaintance’s that I have had over the years helped me through some rough spots. However, they were not considered friends but only acquaintance’s because they were only there for that one certain part in my life. A true friend would manage to be there for every single part of it. The good times, and bad times. I would not expect a friend to be there for every instance but the instances that were most important to me they should be by my side if they were a true friend.
