Finding Happiness

Its June 1st, 2011, I’m Lidawma and this is what I’m thinking…

Crossroads – I believe that is what it is called. That is where I feel I am once again in my life. There are a  number of options before me, none that I would have considered just a year ago. Life is not what it was and it has been difficult for me to accept. And still I think that maybe I don’t need to accept it, maybe things will change and I’ll get better and life will go on as normal. Then again maybe it won’t. I believe I have come to a point where I can look at new ideas, new directions and  a new mindset. Its time to start enjoying life again, in whatever way I can.

Life is full of challenges. Being happy shouldn't be one of them. I still need to do alot of work to get myself into mental shape. Inspiration came to me today via facebook. A link from a page I ‘like’d took me to a site full of positive motivation, ‘shine your brightest’, ‘create a life from your heart’ (http://christinaseitz.com/ ). To alot of people its just a lot of ‘hooey’ but today it just hit me in the right spot. It has inspired me to work on myself, on my mental attitude, to start a real heart-felt journal and take time to focus on what I want in life – something I have to reconsider as many of things I wanted are not possible at this time. I know there have to be many things I can still do that will bring me joy and happiness. And I know, if I really get honest with myself, that happiness comes from within and I can’t force it or find some magic that will just ‘make’ me happy. I have to dig deep and find that happiness that is in there, somewhere, hiding.

yourself what makes you come alive. And then go
and do that. Because what the world needs is
people who have come alive.' Harold Whitman

Hello World

It’s May 23, 2011, I’m Lidawma and this is what I’m thinking

I never thought  a blog would be my thing but I’ve been told I’ve had a fascinating life and should write about it. It doesn’t feel fascinating now as I am in a slower stage of my life but I’ll admit alot has happened in the last 43 years or so. So here am I joining the masses in blogging my life. I could choose a topic and blog about that but I’m too scatter-brained for that; I’d never stay focused. I’ll leave it wide open to write about whatever. As in art I will wait for inspiration and motivation on a subject. It may be a dream I had, an encounter in real life or just reminiscing about the past. Maybe I’ll delve into the future but I don’t know, I don’t like to try to envision where life will take me; I’m always wrong anyway.

So this is it – my world, my mind, my thoughts, my life as it comes to me, as my mind perceives it. Read it or don’t read it, does it really matter to me?  Not really, I write for myself; to get the thoughts out of my head; to make my thoughts more concrete, more real; to relieve the stress of everyday life. My words are here, whoever reads them can take what they like from them. I claim no expert knowledge on anything, only my opinions and thoughts. I don’t debate or argue with anyone so if you don’t agree with me just move on, my feelings won’t be hurt. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, including me.
