Immature forever… Forever young!

My goal in life is to be happy and spread happiness to others!

I used to be a shy, hide-in-the-corner, type of girl. I used to hide when friends and family would come to visit. Even though I spoke or sang in front of large audiences, I was very nervous and never looked at anyone. In school I was known as the geek or the shy girl that never talked nor had friends.

I was a people-pleaser. I would do what I thought made others proud of me. I felt I had to prove myself as a person worthy of love. If I screwed up, I hated myself! I felt I was not worthy of any praise or if someone told me I did a good job, I would not believe it.

I had great parents that taught me right from wrong, taught me about God, taught me how to take care of myself, my home and a family. They did their best to keep me from harms way. Never ever did I back talk my parents, get in trouble at school, etc… I learned how to take care of animals, plant gardens, harvest the gardens, can our own food, make my own clothes, etc…

However, I was a sad girl! Why? I may never know this answer. What I do know is this…

I am now a happier person, sometimes still shy, sometimes a little crazy, sometimes a LOT of immaturity. I love myself! Yes, I still have my moments when I get upset with myself if I feel I have upset another person but I came to realize that I cannot be a people-pleaser. I cannot make others happy. Their happiness has to come from within just as mine does.

Some people may say, “act your age.” What is age? Age is just a number. I’m sure many of us have aches, pains, heartaches, health ailments, family troubles, relationship problems, and other things too numerous to mention.

It’s how we deal with these problems that make us who we are. We CAN overcome our problems! We CAN make it to better health, we CAN survive the tough times! WE ARE STRONG!

I found a great book that has a lot of what I call “immature information.” This book is “The Encyclopedia of Immaturity” by the editors of “Klutz.” It’s filled with 410 pages of nothing but immaturity! Feel free to visit their website at for more information and great ideas for youngsters of all ages.

I plan to be immature forever! Why? I want to be forever young!!

So get up off the couch, stop dreading the bad things in life and…



Happiness doesn’t come from money or things. Happiness comes from within!

We can choose to be happy by responding to what happens to us. Are you having a bad day? We all have bad days from time to time. We all struggle with events and things going on in our life. We worry, we have stress, we have monetary struggles, we have children that we care for, we may have an elderly parent to take care of, we have health issues. I could go on and on…

It’s how we respond to these things that happen to us that counts. Take the time for yourself to rid the stress, talk to a person that will listen and not judge you, talk to others or join a group to get ideas on how to handle your situation. Most of all, please realize that you are not the only one in the world going through a tough time. You can be an overcomer!!

I choose happiness!

Clear the clutter!

Clear the clutter to be healthier and happier! Clutter in our life tends to make us unhappy and, in some cases, unhealthy.

What is clutter? How do I clear the clutter?

Clutter can be things lying around the house, things in our mind, or just our life in general.

Clutter in our home can make us unhealthy. Too many things lying around the home can attract bugs or rodents, can become moldy, or become a safety hazard while we are simply walking around the house.

Clear the clutter in your home by donating things you are not using to a charity or homeless shelter. Every few months I go through my closet and donate items that I have outgrown, may have a slight tear, may need a button, or that I haven’t worn in a while. Recently, I cleaned out my closet, china cabinet, kitchen cabinets and donated items that I don’t need.

Clear the clutter in your mind by getting rid of the negativity, the thoughts of worthlessness, and stop worrying about things you can’t control. Start thinking positive, remain positive through the good and bad, read healthy materials, watch movies that make you feel good. Most of all don’t listen to people that criticize you and make you feel worthless.

If you can’t find the time to clear the clutter around the house yourself, don’t be ashamed to ask for help. Ask a friend, a family member or hire an outside source to help you clear the clutter!

If you can’t find the time to clear the clutter in your mind… PLEASE MAKE TIME! It’s worth it!!
