How to get happiness in your life

Happiness in ones life starts with person taking charge of there own life. All I have ever wanted was to just be happy. Its amazing how you never know what path your life is going to lead you. Looking back a year ago, I never would of thought how everything was going to change for me. I knew I couldnt change what was going on without doing something about it. A year ago, I was still with my husband although very miserable with my life. This man didnt work, used drugs and lied to me on a daily basis. It wasnt good for me or my children to be around this type of person. But only I could have taken the steps to change the way things were going in my life. After finding some needles in my attic where I lived, I phoned Jeff Mackeys probation officer who eventually caught up with Jeff and his drug addiction and placed him in jail, I had never felt such relief in my life that he was finally in jail. Ya never know when you marry someone how they are going to turn out. This man was also convicted on robing an elderly couple.

A short time later a friend on mine introduced me to her boyfriends cousin. I informed her after what I had gone through with my ex husband I wasnt interested, but Charlie was persistant to get to know me anyhow. I really wasnt interested but the more I got to know him the more I became interested.

Charlie rented his own apartment and I had my own home. After a few months of us dating and when I found out my daughter was pregnant, charlie said he would move in and help me. I couldn't be happier. At the point when I had put my husband in jail the last thing I wanted was another man but he was a great pick. Charlie moved in and we have been so happy ever since. My divorce was finalized October 29, which irronically was the aniversary of my fathers death almost 34 years ago. I can also see me marrying Charlie in my future, although a year ago I had stated I would never marry again. I am finally the happyiest I have ever been by taking charge of my own life and future and getting the negative people out of my life.

Great Title and a good hub but change your Title for the search engines, it's spelt Happiness. I hope you don't think I am being cheeky, just trying to help you get more traffic, good luck !
