miuWe are not what happens to us.

We all had some distressful traumatic events in our lives at some point. Something that caused us stress and lots of suffering, but we don’t have to carry that with us for the rest of our lives… we don’t have to let it define us.

Part of getting older and maturing is learning how to let go of baggage , like heavy rocks sinking in a deep lake. Let it go and let it settle.

Courage is a rewarding emotion.  A pat on the back for doing something hard, making a hard decision, making the right choice in an uncomfortable situation or taking a risk.


Feed this emotion as often as possible , it only makes you stronger and improves the quality of your life!



The drawing used for this post was done by me !

“This Way ” –


Laughing is the best. Laughing at yourself or with friends , your dog and  even with a stranger.

Making someone laugh when they are sad reminds them they have a choice , always.

I like to make myself laugh by drawing stupid things and laugh at it because I am not really good at drawing. They also represent some mean people in my life so it feels even better. Drawing is great therapy!!
