The Key to Happiness

How to be happy is a question that is asked a lot these days. What does it mean to be happy anyways? Webster’s defines happy as:

1. feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc.
2. showing or causing feelings of pleasure and enjoyment

I have no idea what I’m doing with my life

How many times have you heard this? Or even thought this? You’re not alone. Whether you’ve finished college, you’re applying for college, you’ve decided college isn’t the right path for you, everyone tells you you should know where you’re headed. But is that really the only option?

Feeling like the weird one because you don’t have your college and career path picked out at 17 is more common than you’d think. Continue reading I have no idea what I’m doing with my life

Why?

Do you ever question things? Not just the big things but even the small. I’m talking questioning some things you do everyday.

Like why do I get up at this time every morning? Is it because I have to, is it because I want to, is there a better time to make my day better? Why do I eat this for breakfast? Is it convenient, is it healthy, do I just not eat breakfast at all?

Questioning your choices everyday could lead to a better day. Maybe you find out that doing the exact same thing everyday makes you miserable. Or maybe you will find some time in your day you didn’t know you had. Or maybe you will just find new ways to make yourself happy.

Have you questioned anything today? Has it caused you to make a change?

Health can be Simple

The last few months, I have not been using shampoo and conditioner and for that matter, i haven’t been using deodorant either.  I’m sure that got a few eye brow raises.  You’re probably thinking, oh god she’s got to stink and look so greasy!

You know what, I don’t.  I haven’t smelled bad at all.  I’ve been using coconut oil as “deodorant.”  I got tired of rubbing aluminum under my armpits along with countless chemicals.  Have you ever read the ingredients list on your deodorant?  Wow! Continue reading Health can be Simple

Getting a “real job”

Why do I need a real job? Why do I have to go to college? I’ve been told for awhile through high school and there after that I need to get a real job and stop working in food. I need to go to college so j can get a real job.

Of course I was stupid and I listened to what others said was best for me. I went to college. I hated it. I ended up getting a license I did nothing with and then what did I do? Continued to work the same job I was working through high school and college. Continue reading Getting a “real job”

School

I’ve been told all my life you have to go to school to make something of yourself.  I don’t find that true anymore.  And not to mention I don’t know if I ever did, I just took it as if everyone says it it must be right.  I don’t think it is.  I can learn on my own.

I don’t need college to tell me how to do my job.  What happened to the days of on the job experience out weighing reading directly from text books?  Continue reading School
