I have discovered one of the most inspiring piano composers of my life. I can't get enough. It brings joy to my heart. I'm finding it's great for meditation and allowing me to be introspective. I'm in awe.... Keeping this here for future reference! https://www.pandora.com/artist/brian-crain/ARXzZrh736d6fZK

Recently my basement flooded for the second time in 18 months. The first time took weeks to clean up. The most recent took about a day, not including follow up on insurance claims and such. I remember the first flood waking me up to the shear enormity of other floods in the south and how I did not recognize the challenge entire communities face during a flood. My recent flood was a mere hassle more than a life moment. I am insured well and have been made whole both times. The most re...

There have been a few obstacles in my path this week, and it's been tough. There have been some communication struggles with my new office job, and trying to save energy to put into my second job. This week is just a blink of an eye in this life, so I try to forgive myself for my mistakes and keep on learning and growing to make next week better. A lot of times I lose sight of this mindset, and Matt is the one person that puts me back on the right path. His smile reminds me just how simple l...

I woke up very early this morning. Baby girl always wakes up at 5:30, I typically nurse her and we both go back to sleep. This morning I decided to stay awake. I don’t get a lot of me time lately, so I wanted to do that today. These last couple of hours of quiet have allowed me to meditate and stretch which I used to do often. I haven’t done this in awhile. Now as I sit here and listen, I’m relaxed by the sounds of the bubbles and flow of water from the fish tank, a slight swooshing of th...

I'm loving the content from friends and family that are using HappinessFusion. It makes me smile! And now I'm listening to some amazing music which my cousin Josh recommended in the Zen Den. This is why I built this community, this is cool to be living the experience.

Lately I have been feeling down and sad. Life has been throwing blows my way. During this time I came to appreciate these "issues" and "problems". I had to remind myself how lucky I was to have the issues that I have. Without these downs I don't believe we could truly appreciate the ups. I love all of you and I thank you for being a part of my journey.

We have a chance for a slight dusting of snow in my hometown. I'm hopeful we receive a noticeable accumulation. Many people complain about snow. They see it as a bad thing. But me, I absolutely love snow. It is rain's quiet cousin. It falls so peacefully. Fresh, untouched snow is beautiful and pure. Snow has a sound deadening effect. Sit outside after a fresh snow and notice the calmness and quietness around you. A fresh snow is the perfect time to meditate or simply get lost in your thought...

I was able to visit the beach a few days ago. For the first time, I visited an Oregon beach. I had forgotten how happy the beach makes me. I can't help but feel so at peace watching the waves and smelling the salt in the air. It truly is my happy place. My fears and worries disappear when I stand at the edge of the beach. I felt a renewed sense of purpose as I watched the sun set and felt the cold breeze on my face. And as I held my daughter and got to witness her first experience ever seeing...
