I have no time for music snobs that look down on popular, chart music. People find great strength in music, and that’s not something to sneer at. Not only that, but pop music is becoming ever-important in widening the discussion about mental health. Ariana Grande is proof of that. Depression, anxiety and other mental health […]
The old saying goes, ‘you can’t always control what happens to you, but you can always control your reaction to it.’ I believe the moral of this story is, remain connected to Your Higher Power, (mine is Jesus).
I have come to the conclusion today that life is set to try us but we have to make the most of what we have. I have had my fair share of trials today, but you have to think big.
When someone presses my buttons I smile to myself and try to pass on by. Working in a supermarket is a particularly difficult part of my life, I get asked so many stupid questions on a daily basis that sometimes I think about writing them all down and publishing it to the world.
Today’s winner was a short lady who caught me stocking up the milk, she came up and said “excuse me my dear, could you show me to the full fat milk? I just cannot seem to find it anywhere.”
I could not bring myself to say anything I just pointed and ran out into the warehouse!!

Flowing from my heart, is gratefulness; and it feels so good!
Happiness is not yellow, it’s blue
I feel that most people think about happiness as a feeling that is burst out of your chest, where your cheeks hurt from smiling so much and you feel so carefree. The feeling like you could walk on water and fly. It is effortless and easy. Even though the smiley faces we have become so familiar with are yellow, I have learned that happiness is actually blue. I want to challenge this way of thinking because I think it is creating an unrealistic expectation for happiness. I have been through a lot of pain in my life time, and I am sure I am not alone. Maybe you have gone through some pain yourself and feel like you are never going to get to that bright yellow smiley face again.

Someone asked me if I believe in God. Good question.
There is so much hate, and sorrow, and natural disasters that wipe out entire towns…babies dying, hungry children, distraught mothers, persecuted fathers, neglected animals…the list of horrible things in our world is long and ugly.
But when you think about it, all of these things have an “origin” somewhere in the human experience…It’s called cause & effect.
When I examine the anatomy of the human eye, the change of day to night, the burning feeling inside of me when I think about someone I love, the growth process of a seed into a blooming plant, aquatic life in the oceans…Who is doing this?
Why does the sun rise? Where do the planets come from? How does that baby form inside Mommy’s tummy?
There are times when a warm feeling comes over me that I can’t explain. It feels like my heart is going to burst. I’m crying for no apparent reason. I think of someone suffering, that I don’t even know, and it bothers me! Where do these feelings come from?
Do I believe in God? Truth is, I feel God. I talk to God, and whether or not others trust me, I trust that God hears and answers me, because my decisions feel right and have “right” results. Yes, I trust that feeling. Our bodies will grow old and eventually decay. But the feelings never die. Eternity is real.
Someone once said, “You may forget what someone says, you may forget what they did. But you’ll never forget how they made you feel.”
Tense? Stressed? Worried? Tired?
