This is SO True!

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 18, 2014

There comes a time in your life,

When you walk away from

all the drama in your life and the people who create it.

You surround yourself with

people who make you laugh.

Forget the bad, and FOCUS ON THE GOOD.

Love the people who treat you right,

Pray for the ones who don’t.

Life is too short to be ANYTHING BUT HAPPY.

Falling down is a part of life,

Getting back up is living.

~ Jose N. Harris

Letting My Secret Out

By LifeCherries, published on Jan 11, 2014

...more fulfilled and happier than I have ever been. For the first time ever, life is clear to me and I know what I want.

Hubby (or soon to be ex-hubby) and I have found mutual ground and are working together to finalise matters on good terms.

I now have the world at my feet and happiness greets me every day.

I will be writing about this in more detail in future posts. Maybe not specifically relating to my experience but in my search of happiness, I have spoken to so many others with similar experiences and I would like to share some of these with you.

Ciao for... (more)

There’s A Donkey in the Well!

By Coach Phatty, published on Dec 30, 2013

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at... (more)

Regrets of the Dying

By Coach Phatty, published on Nov 26, 2013

...to ever manage this task. It is all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they... (more)

I can buy my own drinks

By LifeCherries, published on Nov 16, 2013

As an almost middle aged woman, brought up with old school values, I have had to stand up and take notice of younger woman who have taken life by the balls and run with it. For instance - the reason I started my blog is because I attended a social networking workshop and felt rather threatened that all the younger women sitting next to me all had their own blogs - I didn't even know what a blog was until that day. I walked out that evening knowing that I had to change my way of thinking. If I was to survive in a modern world, I needed to start doing things for myself.

Smile!

By Coach Phatty, published on Nov 8, 2013

Smiles and happiness are SO good for the heart and soul. It is great medicine for the life of a person. The following thoughts are are fabulous reminders as to why a smile is so important.

A smile costs nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it.

A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is... (more)

A Wish

By Rahul, published on Oct 12, 2013

Wish I could go back and

Let out all those words,

Once held back hoping

To set things right.

Wish I’d studied less and

Learnt more of life.

Ways to be content

With what I have and am.

Wish to just sit listening to,

The old wise sea singing.

Tales of those brave souls,

Who once walked her shores.

Wish to see just the good,

Even in the worst enemy.

Just as one tries to find

A light in the dark.

Breath (Prose)

whilst we waste our

b r e a t h the meal ordered took too long someone takes their l a s t cut down ~ bloodied holes that pierced the skin or sliced with steel paper thin he refused to carry weapons his crime? wrong place ~ wrong time

on a cold and stony road she lies gasping for her final breath hit by one who drank ~ who swore he didn't see her car, she wore no safety belt

alone in an empty lane ~ forgotten old feeble, slouched on cold brick walls his organs failing from abuse his begging plea no longer heard

he's old he hears them whisper ~ had a good innings,... (more)

Slum

By Uttam Gill, published on Jan 25, 2013

I look down at the squalid piece of land

There the congestion can suffocate the life

I see smoke billowing out from a chimney

Somebody cooking and I wonder how life lives

The conglomerate of human being thrives on hope

The bizarre, these slums appear to be

My feet drag me into the narrow lanes

Smile of a child disarms me to read about them

Now, I see a world, where people too live

They live there and I hear a loud music

Oh! They celebrate too

Kids playing, ladies gossiping, everybody so living

From the lane,... (more)

The Conundrum

By melanie jean juneau, published on Jan 17, 2013

It is a conundrum that few can figure out. People look at my smiling face , their eyebrows shoot up, their mouths drop open and they sputter,

Your happy but you have 9 kids !!

There are all sorts of components to my life, my soul and joyful spirit but one aspect to my happiness is one that most people have never considered. Large families are hilarious. and their homes even more so.

First picture a large, 1886, quaint house with all sorts of quirks. A window became a doorway to a hundred year old addition. It must have been some one with an odd sense of humour who cut... (more)
