Out of the Darkness - Why we walk

Every year since 2009, the Out of the Darkness Community Walk, in Milwaukee leads me to help educate others and prevent suicide loss. In February 2015, I received an email from the walk chairperson announcing the date of the 2015 walk on October 4th. 370 more words

When You are Happy



girl71282 reblogged this on Girl's Crazy Thoughts and Ideas :) and commented:

image Are you happy? I mean, can you look at your life and reflect on all the things in it that makes you happy? I,myself, have been having a hard time doing that given all of the recent events that have happened in my life. What's there to be happy for anymore? Well guess what? There's a lot to be happy for, and I'm going to find at least one thing daily that makes me happy. It can be something as small as a smile from a stranger, to winning the lottery. I'm going to do this! I first saw this challenge being presented on thisblog. It was about a lady from India was kind of having the same problem. She was just looking at the negative in her life and not all of the positive. I'm not going to tell you a whole lot about her blog post because I think you should click on the link and read it yourself! It's not boring! So, starting today I am going to be doing this challenged to find happiness. The very first thing I'm going to be happy about is that my boys are strong, healthy, and smart individuals who ALWAYS know how to put a smile on my face. I love those little and big suckers with all of my heart and will no matter what. I hope they all know this. So, that's my post for today! Search for the 100 Days of Happiness Challenge and see what you find. Does it look like something you'd be interested in doing with me or on your own? I'm ready to be happy again. Whose with me?
