Are We Happy Yet?

“I can’t wait until I’m financially able to afford who I really am.” ~Unknown

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~Frederick Keonig

Just a quick post today. I’m at film festival, where my feature film Healing River has been nominated for Best Picture of the Year by ICVM (International Christian Visual Media). My wife Trudy and our terrifying six pound watch-cat are guarding the castle while I’m away. You can read a bit more about the nomination about it by clicking here.

    LOL. ““I can wait until I’m financially able to afford who I really am.” Love this line. But that day may never come. Haha. That’s life. Waiting is a risk.

  3. Great quote from Keonig. I’ve felt happiness by being around family and friends, as well as taking a walk in a lovely place.

    💜 As a Recently Recovered KiDult I Recently Remembered Being “Happy” as a Child until ‘Grown Up’ Parents and Other Authority Accosted and Arrested My ‘Happiness’ along with Taking Away My Sense of Self; it’s ALL (My “Happiness” and Joy) Being Returned Now because I Admitted, Acknowledged and Addressed My MMHI (Multiple Mental Health Issues) from My Conditioned UpBringing and I Have Forgiven My Parents by Parenting My Parents…which They Don’t Like, The Sulky TeenAgers Who NEVER!!! Matured from ‘Growing Up’; ain’t nuthin’ much worse than a Grumpy, Elderly “TeenAger”, definitely NOT!!! “Happy” Oldsters…but There is Hope EveryOne; plenty of Sweet Grandmas and Grandpas who ARE VERY “HAPPY!!!” in Their Own Coupled Up Skin
