Be Thankful Be Happy.

Be Thankful Be Happy.

Hi Guys! Here I am finally in the BLOG-O-SPHERE! I just wanted to get my first little intro blog out to let you know the ‘whys’ and ‘what’s’ of my newest little venture and 2 year resolution come true. So here goes…

Why should I write a blog, and why should you read it?

Well…simply put, I LOVE LIFE! I am in constant awe in almost equal measure of both the people and things (art, nature, music, literature, let’s be honest here fashion and beauty too), simple or grand that miraculously find their little ‘ole ways smack dab into the middle of my charmed little life!

Now, I’m not old-and-wise like I hope to be at the end, and I’m not charmed for any other reason except I’ve deemed my own-self so, but I do think I have some pretty good insight gained through a myriad of experience, readings, and the incredible one-on-one discussions with my extraordinary friends, family, clients and co-workers that occur in my life just about every single day (hmmm… that felt like a really long sentence). You know exactly who you are and don’t be surprised if something we talked about ends up in this blog, identities changed of course and with tasteful recounting (don’t worry though, your secrets are off limits!) ☺.

Life can be monotonous. It really can be. Life. Can. Be. MONOTONOUS! When I was little I remember my high school counselor asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up… Back then I answered very dramatically “I want to be an actress, I know you’ve heard it before, but I’m really going to be one.” Many years later with the recognition that I have horrible stage fright and generally come across as humorous in almost any rendition I undertake, I have realized that what I want to be when I grow up, what I want to be NOW, is HAPPY…

Happy you say? Oh so easy!!!! Ha! No way Jose! It really isn’t! Happiness, like most great things in life takes work. I’ll say that again, IT TAKES WORK TO BE HAPPY! Sure the Average Joe has good days and bad days (or maybe you’re the fabled happiness unicorn who is always happy, even on a rainy Monday), but what I am talking about is living happily the majority of the time regardless of circumstance; income, job, relationships, or TIME… And this type of happiness takes work!! Although I am not a black belt in this arena, I’ve come pretty far and would like to share, on a fairly regular basis, my ideas about being happy! I hope that sounds marvelous to you! (Disclaimer: If you’re already happy, this might make you even happier!!!)

What types of things will you find here?

The answer to this is both simple and a bit complex, in a word: EVERYTHING!

I’ve already said I am going to share my pit stops on the road to happiness, some of them you may like and some you might find pretty outlandish… But, I think most of you will find a little inspiration here. I think a secret back road to happiness is inspiration! For the most part, I don’t have tons of time to execute major projects so most of what I will be sharing here will quick and simple thoughts, adventures, stories, projects, recipes, and findings… because nothing makes me happier than beginning a new book or ending one, growing something from a seed, learning a new beauty trick, finding a quote that speaks to exactly how I am feeling today, or just adding a little glitter to something☺.
