Happiness

20120606-210558.jpg

I have decided to revamp my life a little in the search of a little more happiness. I mean, what makes us happy anyway? I believe that answer could be drastically different from person to person, however there must be a basic root for us all. I know there are a multitude of books, websites, blogs, etc on this subject already. Let’s just say I’m a hands on learner.

One Day We All Shall Perish 2

Anne Frank passed away nearly 67 years ago in early March of 1945. Her story and the stories of others like Elie Wiesel opened a window for everyone to see and feel the horror of the Holocaust. I post this in memory of and thanks to Anne. I also thank Elie and the many others who have told their stories for opening their hearts, bearing their souls, and sharing them with the world.

One Day We all Will Perish

Whitney Houston has passed away. She had so much talent and yet such a tragic life as portrayed by the media. I send out prayers for her family and friends.

Taking Risks

I wanted to quickly share something I heard last night.  I was in the hallway getting meds together and was listening to the multiple televisions playing in the patients’ rooms.  Because of that I am unaware as to what channel it was or any kind of specifics.  I did hear enough to understand that it was some type of memorial speech related to the recent loss of 2 students at a local community college.  I heard the speaker say, ” The easiest way to remember you have nothing to lose in life is to face the fact that one day you are going to die.”  He also said something I’ve heard many times in many ways, “We all want to go to Heaven, but none of us want to die to get there.”  I felt it was a reminder that we do need to try to live our lives to the fullest.  I do believe that God has given us the wisdom to take care and not be reckless.  I also believe that if we live our lives so cautiously that we never take any risks or try anything new, we have to question if we are truly living or just existing.  I pray that we all find our own way to appreciate and celebrate this blessing of life.
