Searching for Happiness – The Benefits of Honesty

What is it about honesty that brings me so much joy? I feel so safe and reassured in the arms of honest words. Well, you know… if words had arms or whatever. For many it is the opposite, happiness grows from blindness, from dishonesty, from “what I don’t know can’t hurt me.” I guess there is truth in that also. What you don’t know can’t hurt you… yet. But it can hurt you eventually. When you shield yourself from honesty and keep things from yourself and those you…

Searching for Happiness – Self Love Books

I have been reading like a madwoman this year. My reading adventures have consisted of biographies, fiction, non-fiction, and self-help. One thing I have discovered on my reading adventures is that there are a lot of really, really bad self-help books out there. Seriously… In fact, it is no wonder why more people don’t read these types of books. Many can be overwhelming and unmotivating, leaving you feeling confused and discouraged. Don’t let those bad books discourage you from gaining the benefits of the good self-help books that are out there…

If only I was younger I would be happier, if only I was older. Humans roam all corners of the…
