7 Must Do Things In Kauai, Hawaii

A Dream Vacation In Kauai So in early 2015 I was able to take my four children with me to Kauai. I had been there once before in 2011 and promised them I would take them on the next trip. I saved my booty off and was able to make it happen the week of my birthday in Feb of 2015. We had so much fun. My kids are still talking about it almost weekly. While we’d all love to go back but there are some other places on our…

Support-Why We Need the Real Deal

Where are the People Who Support Us? Today was opening day of youth softball/baseball in my community. Before leaving for the parade, I was polishing up a post that I intended to publish Monday. After we arrived home today my daughter said something about support that inspired me to write a completely different post. She asked, “Where are all the people who are supposed to be here to watch the parade and support us? Some of my friends had no one mom”. I won’t hesitate to say my heart sank.…

The Diamond Some days it seems as though happiness is an illusion. No matter what we try, it’s just out of grasp. Like a mirage in the desert. We keep walking toward it, because we know once we get there a happy oasis awaits. Thirst for our dry, parched bodies and souls.

That phrase is not helpful…

Open to Optimism-The What If’s and Why Not’s

Are you Open to Optimism? “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty”. -Winston Churchill Think to a movie you’ve seen with the following scene. An angel sits on one shoulder and a devil on the other. They are arguing with the character, both trying to persuade their point of view.

Happiness Hunting-Stop Faking, Start Making

Is it even possible? I sit across from a good friend at a local restaurant. As we sip our drinks I candidly ask, if genuine happiness is only an illusion? His life seemed to be in good order and I hoped he would offer some great insights. Some inkling of advice that would propel me to continue putting one foot in front of the other. But not in the hamster wheel that I had been on. At the time my life was upside down, inside out, and backwards. Just about…
