My Way to Happiness
One of the many things that became important for me to find was happiness. Everything in my life started to change and take on a different meaning. When you are getting older, the kids are growing up and you finally have time to take care of yourself….it seems to not happen. What I mean by this is, your mind will always find ways to fill your need to be wanted and needed. If your kids are almost graduating high school or have already and they start their lives and families, you feel the need to want to take care of them before yourself. For me, I have watched as everyone around me grew tired and felt that they didn’t achieve much for themselves so I want to take a different approach. I started my blog a year ago after I found out that I was going to be disabled the rest of my life. All the years of hard work and physical labor took its toll and now I am not as active as I was. I don’t want the second half of my life to not include time for me to take care of myself.
My blog started out as a family blog of adventures my family…who is my whole world…would share. But then, I said why not share the people I know with the world and help them grow and become successful all the while introducing the world to who I really am. I love writing and it has been such a passion for me since I was little and I don’t plan on stopping unless my carpal tunnel prevents it. I am in the process of writing a book and it just so exciting that my blog has been such a success!!
My Two Pieces of Advice
- Spend the rest of your life writing about your passions or doing them. Your story may be boring to you but others may find it interesting and inspirational so write about.
- Always support and recognize others for what they do because you never know if they need a boost in self-esteem. In the spirit of making others feel better, make sure you always cater to your own well-being.

Questions from Charli Dee
Which of your blog post is your favorite? “The cover comes off…no more filters” I wrote about being able to be free from having to look the way society expected me to and teaching my daughter the same.
What is your favorite color? My favorite color is Black or Red, especially when I am picking out a nice car. I love the shine it has.
What is your favorite food? I don’t have a particular favorite because I love all food but I do have a couple rules before eating it- it has to be hot, not spicy, not moving and look good on the plate, presentation is key.
Do you have a secret talent? I recently found out that I am really good at creating ideas in my head while I sleep. Most of my blog posts come after I have been dreaming. I probably could write a book but I wanted to start my hand in blogging first to see how it goes..lol
Which season(Spring, Winter, Summer, Fall) is your favorite? So, I live in Florida and basically we have 3 seasons-Hot, Very Hot and Don’t Even Bother Coming Out Hot..but when I lived in my hometown Cleveland, Ohio for 35 years, I loved the Spring with fresh flowers and it was a great time to clean inside and outside of your house.
What song would be your theme or anthem? My current theme song is “I will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor. I have been through so much in the last 6 years that I am a survivor.
Who is your favorite celebrity? Surprisingly, I don’t have one. I am all about knowing the real person not the character they play on t.v. so I really can’t say that I love any celebrity.
Do you have a favorite book? Right now, I am trying to get into reading but can’t seem to find the time or me time for that matter to get it done. I have 3 teens and a husband who take up most of my time. I write in my blog early in the mornings and that’s about all the time I have.
Do you have a favorite movie? Well, I actually have 3- Saturday Night Fever, Jackie Brown and Goodfellas. I can watch these over and over and never get tired of them.
Do you have a t.v. show you’re binging on right now? I think if I can remember a couple weeks back, I watched the new show “The Enemy Within” This is a must see!!
What is the one thing you love most about blogging? I love being able to share my life with others through my eyes. Writing about things that are on my mind and being able to share with others what inspires me about them.
