I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

The Secret to Happiness

My questions can make you think differently

Years have gone by very fast, and right before my eyes.

I feel young at heart, and what matters most to me is not of how old am I.

What I should wear in my generation?

Is my well-being is important to me?


Age is a number, and I have shown that to myself.

I feel just as young as I did the year before and the year previous to that one.

I can't deny that the number is increasing and each year.

I ignored the number to feel good and confident about myself.

Old means frail and I don’t want to use that word to describe me.

The good words make me feel great about me.

I have goals for each day I think of a new idea and activity to keep me occupied.

  • What are my goals?

I chose to focus on me and make my life a happy one living in a foreign country with different people.

My daily practice is taking me to success.

The miraculous moments I will treasure for only I know what that means to me.

I will not give up on smiling and learning from my daily activities.

  • How will I live each day without to many fusses?

I feel my life in Croatia has taught me to be more laid back, and I know that I am happiest when I am just me.

My main point is to forget and let be. Forgive and to move on. In that way I won't have the time for fusses or stupid arguments.

My life needs to be set free from any mishaps it may not be easy to avoid mishaps.

I have to go on with my positive life.

I don't want to pick on every little conversation I just want to let myself be and live happily.

There have been many silly arguments which I want to let go of and focus on now, the present is most important to me.

  • What have I been carrying in my baggage?

Too much baggage has been hanging on with me, and it is time to empty my bags and have light shoulders.

I want to get rid of the past conversations and make my life free from the unnecessary weight.

Holding onto what will never be has been my issue for a while but time has shown me to make new memories and live each day to my fullest.

I want to be clear to myself and understand the meaning of my life.

  • Have I found my way to deal with my issues?

I realized over time that life has changed for me in so many ways.

I have come to accept my life in Croatia and still choose to live the way I know is best for me.

It has not been easy for me to adapt to another culture.

I have learned lots along the way and now have made great adjustments.

I have finally found what is true happiness and have had great adventures in my new place.

I have learned of how to interact with people and I have got my way with my life here.

I try not to get frustrated with those who choose to gossip their life is not mine and I can't change the way some people think but I can change the way I think and do.

  • What would my life be like in a few years from now?

I don't know what my life would have been like down that road.

I choose to go by but I do know I am going to travel to many places. I have worked my hardest for many years.

My plans are open and interesting. I enjoy traveling and would like to visit many European countries and some parts of the United Stated of America.

Before my next birthday I would like to accomplish some of the goals mentioned here especially, some of the traveling destinations.

  • How has writing changed me over time?

I have found myself in writing and in my great challenges. Each year that I had spent writing on line it showed me more strengths than weaknesses.

I chose to go by my strengths. I feel confident and most happy with my life in Croatia.

I did not think a while back I would even talking like this but believe it or no I am and feeling great about this life.

Years have passed by quickly. A long time spent in Croatia and a time for me to accept my life as is.

  • I write daily and enjoy what I do.

I did not know what everything meant to me until I let it all go and then I really missed my old life for a long time.

Recently, I feel each day is much easier and fulfilled in some ways.

I can't wait on what I know may not be.

I got to move on to what I know is going to be and is going to make a difference in my life.

My experiences have made me stronger and more alert.

I feel more encouraged and less exhausted.

  • How did I attain my happiness?

An awesome question!

When I look around at my great achievements, I feel most proud of what I have achieved over time. I gained my happiness from the well-approached skills

I admire my garden and surroundings, and seem more each day of how blessed I am to have such a place and to live in the midst of freedom.

A life I know could not have been and is not possible back in South Africa.

I appreciate my place more when I hear of what is actually going on back in my home country. All of that enlightens my ideas of my better place.

My happiness is from within, the kind of natural happiness that is not easily felt for many people.

Some people choose to be happy with great gifts or in pleasing others. I chose to be happy from childhood with the simple things in life.

A kind of happiness once achieved will not vanish from the heart.

I was raised in a loving and close-net family, and I know what it is like to be truly happy from my early childhood years.

Happiness was difficult for me to attain in Croatia. I just behaved as me and did not change me to please anyone.

I grew happier by not changing me to please anyone.

  • Do I enjoy the feeling of my new life?

I enjoy my new life with my family and love is such a great part of our lives.

We feel true happiness with true love something that holds us together firmly and so well.

We laugh and talk about stuff we know, and understand better than any one else in our community. With the different sense of humor it is difficult to laugh at the same kind of jokes.

The key to a happy life and to having love, is to accept what you see, and I have shown that in my new life.

My special moments more meaningful to me.

My terrific thoughts are about my next goals for the year ahead.

The every day questions for me allows me to move forward with ease.

  • How will I be in the next year or for my next birthday?

  • Will I manage my goals?

  • How will I keep fit daily?

  • Am I going to reach out for what matters to me?

  • Have I accepted my life?

  • Will I grow older and grayer without achieving my goals?

Each time I tried to get up the ladder, I did feel the fall and had to get right back up and make my life feel good when it was not good.

I learned from my challenges. Life needs working on all the time as everything else needs to.

All the ''ifs'',''or,''and ''but,'' are not going to show you any results if you don't try making the effort.

You should not ignore what you want from life meet your goals with a positive mind.

Remember only you can do that for you.

Happiness

      Well alright DDE, you have a wonderful perspective on life, especially to be positive and to get over all obstacles/hurdles. Let nothing or no one bring you down. If you fall then get right back up. Like falling off of a horse, if you stay down after the fall then that horse may trample you and so will others. Thank you for sharing your beautiful ideas.

      Devika, I love your way of life- love nature, maintain own unique character, move on in life in spite of ups and downs and work hard and earnestly to achieve the desired goals. The photos are very awesome especially that of red tulip which resembles like bright hope in our heart. What you write about your journey in life instils great inspiration and provides powerful sense of direction. I loved reading your life experiences that reflect great wisdom and insight. Voted up.

      Some lovely photos here, DDE! You have a determined spirit and I get the impression you have been through a lot. I wish you luck and even more happiness where you are now.

      Your writing is improving all the time too; I can see your stronger sentence structure and you use a variation of length in your sentences. It's so much easier to read now - well done indeed! Keep it up; writing every day obviously does you good!

      You have a great spirit and I imagine that you have good friends. All the best! Ann

      Devika, life is what we make it, you took a leap into the unknown, that took courage. It wasn't easy but nothing that is worth having is easy. I'm so glad you've found lasting happiness, it helps to reflect on our life. Great hub, well done.
