I want to create valuable and meaningful change and I want my life to have meant something to the people that matter to me

Keywords: lifestyle , mental health , self love , thoughts , wellbeing , connections , happiness , relationships , strong relationships

The key component to a happy life is ‘connection’ through valuable and meaningful relationships with the significant people in our lives. It’s really that simple.

The challenge of waking up each day and figuring out how I can best use my energy and creativity to help others, of keeping going despite inevitable failures, gives a deep sense of fufillment no amount of money could buy

Keywords: art , life changes , spirituality , change , growth , happiness , mindfulness , self employed , work

I will want to do it even if there’s no financial reward at the end. The truth however, is that when you’re in alignment with your gifts, calling, passions – the likelyhood of making money is much higher – the difference is it’s more of a by product that an end goal.

There is a fine line between habit and addiction

Keywords: blog found in the forest , addiction , appalachian trail , divorce , habits , hiking , lgf , sugarloaf mountain

My affinity with ascending mountains has likely become an addiction, but a healthy one. I want to do it more, faster, higher and with my challenge. I have hiked Sugarloaf before, but didn’t make it very high up because I was with my kids and there was still snow on the ground.

Isn’t this what I wanted?

Keywords: {0}

I wanted to be away to escape unresolved issues I had been stuck with my whole life but once the dust had settled, I found myself looking elsewhere again. What if I’m always going to be stuck in limbo? What if I can’t shake off the idea that the grass is going to be greener on the other side, only to be disappointed once I get there? I don’t know how to stop chasing the elusive notion of happiness without succumbing to the thought that this is probably it. As I sit on the cusp of adulthood, I find myself growing increasingly restless. With places to be, people to meet and stories to write, I still don’t know what it is that I want to say.

I want to share the happiness I feel

Keywords: {0}

I want the world to feel that way too. It can be a bit much for some, but I realize that if I am feeling all of this goodness within myself, why wouldn’t I want to share it with others. It’s just like if you found a really good restaurant with great food, and service, wouldn’t you want to share that with others? It is an analogy, however, that is what it feels like for me.

Why do you have to wait until you’re old to enjoy life?

Keywords: {0}

I finally got to take a step back and see things in a much slower pace. I got to see myself and get to know her too. And that’s when I realize that I think, my old lifestyle does not suit me anymore. I don’t want to work so hard (especially doing something I don’t want) at the cost of letting life pass me by. I’ll probably get the money but I don’t get to use it because I have no time. Money, since the longest time, has never been a motivation for me. Does not mean I don’t need money, I just need enough for me to live a life I can enjoy.

I want to greet change with both my arms opened wide

Keywords: food for thought , approval , change , comfort zone , happiness , mental health , mental wellness , peace of the mind , validation , wellness

I really like the idea of being comfortable while challenging new things. Why do I need to jump out completely and scare myself shitless? Who is it for? What I am trying to prove? And if I did prove it to someone, so what? What is it for? Approval? Whatever for? Does it make you happy?

Having this clarity about what I want my own life to look like, means that I’m never down for long

Keywords: instant mood shift , mindfulness , thoughts musings , anxiety , depression , entrepreneur , life , mental health , mindfulness , success

I can quickly remind myself that those things don’t mean success to me, or happiness for that matter. And I can review my own version of success, and measure myself by how close I am to this.

Everybody is wrapped up in their own issues to care about how I’m doing

My son is my sunshine. He really is making me smile, even when he frustrates me. His smile lights up my world. His questions blow my mind. He still gets piggy back rides from me and he loves them. His hugs are healing. He is so cute and adorable and I love his personality. I see in him his dad’s confidence and my insecurities meshed in one. We have been slacking on positive affirmations but I’m sure to let him know that he makes me happy every chance I got. I don’t play with him enough, especially during Ramadan because I’m so tired, but he has become so emotionally mature that he literally tells me “I want to spend time with you” and when he says that, I do, even if I’m tired.
