Music, Poetry & Dance

Music soothes the soul,
sending our inner self
into another world
of peace and tranquility.

Poetry expresses
our minds emotions,
organizing our rambled thoughts
into moving words.

Dance frees our mind & body,
allowing us to transform
showing beauty in motion
as we glide, shimmy and pirouette.

Music, Poetry & Dance...
I am moved and move
by these forms to embrace life
and express my mind, body and soul.

What is the pursuit of happiness?

Think long and hard about this. Is happiness something you pursue, or something that comes from within us? Many times, the more we pursue something, the more elusive it becomes. Stepping back, taking deep breaths, and letting life happen without constantly trying to make things happen might be the first step in allowing the happiness inside ourselves to find its way outside.

Embrace life and happiness, but don't be so intent on the pursuit of it all that you lose yourself and the happiness that comes from within.

Be content.
Be humble.
Be happy.

Let the rest take care of itself.

I know this journey you are on is not at all easy and there is no real words to describe the degree of difficulty.
But with your eyes on God you will become to trust and believe in yourself again. We choose what and who we surround ourselves with who in return impact our lives. You will survive and you are in my prayers....
