About Me

My photo
i moved where my heart had drifted off to long before. i live on a hill of hundred acres, where my dreams have merged with the view. it is quiet from machine noises yet loud with sounds of horses, dogs, cats chickens and ducks. nature is the true artist in resident and i am just her apprentice who often gets lost in her gaze. once and a while i travel back to cities and foreign places to put into photographs what i have learned, yet always, part of my heart is left on the hill..

happy word

I am always scared to state my happiness. i am aware of so many things that instantly make me sad, frightened and disapointed. I am aware, that not everyone is happy and not every one will get a chance for happiness....it is not that my life is perfect nor do i ever expect that my version of perfect will be the same as yours...but nevertheless i am happy, i have alot of things
that need resolving, a new home, a career shift, personal goals that must still be reached. so for me when i say i am happy- maybe it is simply the fact that i am not sad.

Don't be scared to say you are happy. There is nothing wrong with it. Life is never meant to be perfect, it is never meant to just stand still, but you can still be happy even through all of the bad things that happen.

And you also don't need to be happy all the time. It's okay to be sad, to be depressed. It is just life.

so beautifully stated nadia--
I feel this too so often...sometimes I just let any feeling wash over me and just uh...feel the feelings. life is so lifey sometimes...

I was raised to believe that if you let god or ANYONE know you are happy, that it will be taken away from you. Unless you say POO POO POO really loud, or knock on wood. Old habits are tough to break.

so right, we all are afraid to say we are happy but than again what is hapiness ? Maybe you are right, maybe it's just when we are not sad :)
Hope what you dream of will come true.

but i suppose also we can look at it as when we say we are sad it is just the fact that we are just not happy?
i always hope that as fleeting as happiness can feel, sadness I hope to be the same--
