The Journey

Updated: Jan 12, 2020

I was born.....




Emotions, they are temporal and can’t be trusted because they will surely change on you at any given whim……


So goes the journey.


When I was a little girl I dreamed of being a dentist, being successful and happy. Well 2 out of 3 isn’t so bad! Some days I feel that I have achieved a lot and others I feel like there is still so much I have not achieved and I question my success. Same goes for being happy. Happy really isn’t a place, but rather it is a mindset. We all have moments of unhappiness, but if our general state of mind is unhappy, there’s a challenge that must be met. Since “feelings” and “emotions” are so temporal they really aren’t worth vesting our entire outlook on. Take today for example and imagine if you changed your clothes every time your mood changed from happy to sad/mad/disappointed/hurt/discouraged. Now imagine going a whole week like that!! See what I mean?? Can’t depend on those and would definitely need more clothes!


Transparency: I’ve struggled with self-esteem and depression for a great part of my life. There was a time that accepted these struggles as just being a part of who I am and to just please, let me be that way. But one day my doctor, Kim Iona Holland, asked me “well what makes you happy?” What??? I really had to think about this. Ultimately I realized that I am my happiest when I am spending time with family and friends, like hosting my Tea Parties, intense exercise or watching old black and white movies. Or even when cooking with a new recipe. Do you know she had the nerve to tell me “well, whenever you are feeling down, think of a way to engage in one of those and see if your mood shifts” As to imply that I had the power to shape my emotions.


So I did, so I do.


Emotions, they are temporal and can’t be trusted because they will surely change on you at any given whim……

Talk back at me and Make it great day!
