The Art of Life Spilled Over

Annah Elizabeth Happy Happens ™, Mental Health, Relationships Leave a Comment

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, This past week I opened the microwave door to find my lunch bowl of oatmeal boiled over. Already running late, I could easily have gotten all upset about the necessity to now do a little cleaning before I returned to work. There might have been a second of irritation before I noticed the artistic patterns that formed …

Life’s Happy Puzzle

Annah Elizabeth Energy Therapy and Energy Healing, Happy Happens ™, Loss, Grief, and Healing, Relationships 2 Comments

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! I hate to admit it, but it has been one strange and bizarre week, one that feels like the full moon energy has a death grip on me that won’t let go. Sometimes Life’s Puzzles are hard. It might have a little something to do with the return of not one, but TWO little chickadees to what …

Healing and The Two Sides of Dirty Laundry

I have a confession to make, one that might make you pee a little. I was a minute late to my Other Job the other day. It seems I’m always later than I want to be-wherever it is I’m going-and unless I work really, really hard at being on time, I am five minutes late. I’ve often joked that I’m …

Happy Sunday-now-Monday, Journeyer! First up on the Happy Happens tribute list? First week of Back to School is behind me!! Woot! Woot! As always, the return to the early morning six o’clock alarm is a little daunting. Thankfully the first day back wasn’t a split shift, which meant I was able to entertain a much needed, midday nap! My mood …

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! I hope this week’s Happy Happy column finds you well, but if you’re in a place where you can use a little pick-me-up, may something in these words accomplish that for you. My week has been full, to say the least. Full of work and growth and continuing to expand the website so we can help more …

My Merry Go Round Week

Annah Elizabeth Family, Happy Happens ™, The Five Facets of Healing ™ Leave a Comment

Happy Tuesday, Journeyer! Well…all that keeps coming to mind with regard to this post is Up, Up, and Away (in my beautiful balloon.) I have no idea what the lyrics of that song represent, but I know how the music and melody have always made me feel: Like I wanted to fly. Not just fly, but to glide across the …

Life is Too Big for a Bag

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Today I come to you from atop a mountain that overlooks the beautiful Lake Michigan. Yep, we’re on the road again; this time a pleasure trip to visit family and attend a wedding. Yesterday my relatives took us to some local street fairs where we picked up numerous homegrown and handmade goods. You know the type of …

Healing and the Two Sides of Freedom

Annah Elizabeth Healing and the Two Sides of, Loss, Grief, and Healing, Mental Health, Spirituality Leave a Comment

As I prepared for my family’s July 4th celebration, I couldn’t help but think about some of the events and threads that comprise our freedom. Our freedom, for all of us who live in countries that afford us the privilege of choosing our own daily course of actions, was born on the backs and of the bloodshed of too many to …

Healing and the Two Sides of Trust

Annah Elizabeth Healing and the Two Sides of, Loss, Grief, and Healing, Mental Health 2 Comments

“Learning to trust is one of life’s most difficult tasks.” ~Seventeenth-century theologian Isaac Watts Trust. What is it? What does it mean? What does it accomplish? This five-letter word is like a second cousin to another five-letter word–Truth. Trust is basically having faith or a steadfast belief in the people, places, and planet around us. It’s a sense that these things will be …

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Annah Elizabeth Happy Happens ™, Mental Health, Spirituality Leave a Comment

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, Warren, Big Guy, and I spent most of last Sunday in a parking lot at an inlet’s edge, trying to fix a broken boot on our boat. We’d made plans for a Memorial Day outing with Beauty and her beau, and the boat had been the day’s major attraction. Upon discovering that the repair had ruptured during the …
