Choice

Happiness is a merely a thought away. There are many similar quotes along the lines of happiness being a choice, and numerous studies and articles on how our happiness is internal and not being dependant on outside sources. Like some of the things i share here on my blog, i’ve come across and read numerous articles on happiness, and i have shared and tagged my friends in happiness quotes so annoyingly often throughout the years.

Start

Thats the key word to anything in life. For years people have told me that i’ve always had an opinion on things, voicing my thoughts where they weren’t needed or speaking my mind when it was not necessary. I had an opinion on each one of those people too… Then the high wave i was riding finally crashed and like a surfer hitting the corals, … Continue reading Start
