Something Old Something New

The big day is here, my little brother is getting married. Life has been full of changes lately, from haircuts to babies to weddings. Change is good. It is a sign of moving forward, it can be a way to cleanse the past. While I don’t always like change, I do appreciate it. Marriage can be a big change. Bringing the old and new together. Bringing family and friends together. A celebration of love and moving forward with someone. Committing yourself to someone for the rest of your life can be a big change but a good change.

An Intelligent Child

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
~ Einstein

Imaginary vs Real

“Imaginary evil is romantic & varied; real evil is gloomy, monotonous, barren, boring. Imaginary good is boring; real good is always new, marvelous, intoxicating.”
– Simone Weil

A Daily Change

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
– John C. Maxwell

Halfway Review

I started my happiness project this year in January. The end of June marks the halfway point of making my life an overall happier experience. So far so good. These past two months I have worked on cleansing. My body through healthy eating as well as cleansing my environment. I either threw out or used something everyday for the month of June. 30 things! Somedays it was hard but others days I found tons of things to throw out. It was so freeing to get rid of all that “junk” or as my mother likes to call them “dust collectors”. Getting rid of things I had no use for truly helped to cleanse my living environment. My house was cleaner, less cluttered, and seemed fresh. This goal made such an impact I have decided to continue doing it again for July. 31 more things need to go, it can be something small, something little, or something like finally using that half empty bottle of shampoo at has been under the bathroom sink for almost a year. I am going to continuing working on as well as start working on a few goals regarding spirituality. I will continue my meditation and journal writing and will also be expanding and exploring some other goals. My happiness project has made such a huge difference on my life so far, it is the reason I began a blog. I am looking forward to what the remaining half of this year will bring.
