Positive impact, positive society.
Christmas is a bridge. We need bridges as the river of time flows past. Today’s Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday.
I only put down on paper what works for me, and since I started out as a human train wreck, the ways I’ve learned to be happy also work for others.
Now I no longer wish to be loved, beautiful, happy or successful. I want one thing and one thing only – to be left alone.
Man was created in the image and likeness of God. And God is Love. Therefore the heart of man is made for love and the more he loves the more he becomes identified with God; only when he loves can he become happy. And God wishes us to be happy, here on earth too. Man cannot live without love.
The things I call crisis and all the things that were coming after me are all coming to serve the purpose of God in my life.
I was a fool! Loving someone who doesn’t love you is hell! Don’t ever let anyone convince you that you can be happy with someone who doesn’t love you.
We were still twirling around the tiny parking lot when the neighbors
screamed ‘Happy New Year’. Unfortunately we weren’t sober enough to
realize that was our cue to call it a night. Josh had a new beer in his hands,
Danny was eating the last hot dog and Darren and I were still dancing
when the cops showed up.
Sooner or later in life everyone discovers that perfect happiness is unrealizable, but there are few who pause to consider the antithesis: that perfect unhappiness is equally unattainable.
Someone with inborn talent isn’t happy. It’s those who have worked hard for someone precious to them and who can be hot-blooded that are happy.”
