This is Happy

This is happy me. I like happy me. I have been happy me off and on in my life, however I have been consistently happy for almost five years now. My secret to happiness is this, live simply, make love your filter for what you do, and do not entertain negativity even for a second.…… Continue reading This is Happy

You’re Not Everything

You can’t be everything to everyone in your life. No matter how hard you try you can’t please everyone. It’s not possible. You can say yes. You can do and do and still…it will not please everyone.
