Tag Archives: Happiness



Zoom! Boom! To the brilliantly full Moon! The stars have aligned, and I am dancing on air. On this quiet, sleepy day of all days, a dream of mine has come true.  

Life goes on for days and months or even years and nothing is happening and you wonder when you’re going to catch a break and you spend your time asking, “What’s it all about, Alfie?”  You think if something good doesn’t happen soon you’re going to throw in the towel and…and…well, by the time it comes to that point, something wonderful usually does happen. And it did for me on this day.

Pinch me, because I became a newspaper columnist for a local paper. For a person who loves to write (and you know how much I LOVE to write!), this is no small feat. I get to share my stories with the residents of the community in which I live. I will talk about my random thoughts and issues in the hopes it will entertain those reading. I’ll even have a picture and a byline! The paper itself is clever and charming and the perfect place to begin the next chapter in the book of me just being me. This is something I’ve always wanted to do ~ who knew it would actually come true?!

So I celebrate and wish everyone the “happy” I feel inside today. If you hold on long enough and keep tying a knot at the end of your rope, suddenly, without warning, happiness happens. It did for me, and I hope it does for you, too.
