How can you think of the possibility when your life is a disaster and riddled with the worst pain you have ever imagined? I know how that feeling and those thoughts affected me. I …

Cooperation. It’s one of the first words we learn with regard to getting along with others. It often first appears in forms of obedience: cooperate with your parents by doing your chores, helping out in the household or with other siblings. We then move on to structures outside the home, daycare and school, where these same expectations for cooperation are tied …

Healing and the Two Sides of Your Calendar

I recently sat in on a class titled Administrative Skills for Office Professionals. One of the things I’ve always said to my children and anyone else who would listen is this: “We can learn something new every day if our  mind is open to it.

You get what you give, whether it’s bad or good.” This past summer I worked with a life coach who helped me understand some of the negative “karmic life patterns” that are a part of my genetic code, or Human …

A Break in the Clouds

Annah Elizabeth Happy Happens ™, Parenting, Spirituality Leave a Comment

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, It has been a rough two weeks, a sort of calm before the storm. Days filled with anxiety and unrecognized fear, two things that when combined are a cocktail for Anger and Frustration and Heartache. Despite abundant sunshine, my days were filled with a thick haze that precedes a storm. My nights  interrupted by persistent, yet unusual, lightening …
