5 Lessons To Learn In The Pursuit Of Happiness

dreams, perspective

By: Mariel Boldis

What if my version of a mediocre life was someone else’s dream for purpose?

By posing this question, I am opening the doors to the uncomfortable uncertainties of life—the “what ifs” and the “grass is greener on the other side” concept we all dabble with in our minds. I ponder the idea of purpose and living mindfully which mean different things for each of us. For some, a life full of travel is a cause for stress and mediocrity; while for others, travel could feel like the ultimate purpose. This really is all a matter of perception based on our hopes, dreams, and goals.

No Matter Who They Are, They Will Be Touched

love notes

I find myself frequently wanting to send fan mail and gushing texts of love. I used to hold back because I thought that if someone had reached a certain level of success, wealth, fame, achievement, or — insert whatever word you’d like here for “bigness” — they were probably saturated with positive feedback.

I freakin' dare you

Picture it.

August, 2010. Galena, Kansas.

It’s early on a Sunday morning, and my husband and I are enjoying “road tripping” from Maryland to New Mexico.

Oh, but wait a second. Back up. I forgot to tell you something important…

Hold The Excuses (+ A Whole Lotta Nothing)

I know them before I hear them:

I just don’t have time to add anything else to my schedule.
It’s so hard to find the motivation.
By the time I get home from work, the last thing I want to do is spend more time in front of the computer.
Everybody who’s tried online dating has horror stories.
The gym is too crowded after work. I don’t want to stand around waiting for an elliptical.
I’ve just been soooooo busy…..

Sorry, We're Closed


I'd parked the auto down the block and jaywalked across the street, only to discover, "Sorry, We're Closed" greeting me at the door, a good sign for me, though, as I decided to just be mindful of its meaning.

Why We (Should) Change Our Minds In The 11th Hour


You’re about to ship your product, wrap the gift, get dressed for the event, name the baby. Go time. Launch time. Deadline-to-meet-time. It’s time to make the final call. You’ve been working toward this for months. Money invested in designers, endless jam sessions, deep thinking, working toward THAT goal. And then…and then you look at it (clock is ticking, we’re waiting for you to sign off), and you think…it’s not quite right. We need to…. change the name, pull apart the structure, swap out the picture, switch the offer, shift gears.

And then…you want to throw up.

The Cure For A Broken-Open Heart

Broken-Open Heart

When the stresses of life build up to a certain point, who hasn’t had a moment when they broke down and cried?

I used to experience it as a sign that I was defeated or unable to cope. But then I heard a great quote from Martha Beck: “We don’t cry when we lose our hope. We cry when we find it.”
