There are going to be some changes coming to the Chasing Happiness website over the next few weeks so blog posts might every few weeks until June rather than weekly.  I will of course keep you all updated on the changes and can't wait to see what you all think of how the site will be changing.

"You love too much." "You love too hard.""You care more than you should.""You're too much for people to handle.""You're going to get hurt if you keep allowing yourself to care this much."I've heard it all. At some point in my life, I've heard it from everyone. When I was a kid, I thought they were right. Why would I believe any differently? I was a...

 This month I've found it hard to focus enough to do a lot of reading. I know we are all struggling right now with the Covid-19 lockdowns and winter not to mention just how emotionally drained we are all starting to feel. This month I only have a couple books in my list of 40 because of all this so here is what I read.As the book for the ...

 Everything we do in life is about love. Think about it, every choice you make is about how you love yourself. How you love or don't love other people and the world around you. It all comes down to love.  I've been thinking a lot about this recently. I've been thinking about all the choices I've made over the years. All the good and bad d...

 Look, the truth is right now, things are sucky. It sucks that a year into this pandemic and lockdown, we are still dealing with an inability to manage this pandemic. We aren't handling it in a way that allows us all to have some sort of routine that seems like our old normal daily lives.  Right now, we are starting to see the mental heal...

This year, I've decided to take on the enormous task of reading 40 books over the next 12 months since I've now turned 40. These books will be a mix of everything. Business books, self-help books, personal growth books, romance novels and everything else I can get my hands on. I want this challenge to be fun for me and something I can learn from. B...

It wasn't because I was about to turn 40 (that happened today). I'm actually excited about that. It wasn't because I was sad or hurting in any way.It was because, like most of you, I had been holding my breath for the last 4 years. Waiting for the next horrible thing that could and would likely happen. I was praying every day that it wouldn't end i...

This month I will be turning 40. While I would love to travel to some far off place I've never been before and explore a part of the world that is magical and full of unicorns, Covid-19 has me living in a full lockdown/ stay at home order here in Canada. How can one properly celebrate a birthday, let alone a 'big' birthday, without being able to do...

 This word scares some people.  Frankly, it scares me a little, but that's the whole reason I picked it as my word this year. I'm not big on New Year's resolutions or setting pie-in-the-sky goals for myself at the start of a year. I like to aim each year towards getting more comfortable with myself, growing in some way that I haven't befo...

 A lot of people over the last few months have said they want 2020 to be over. Simply put, people want to turn the page into a new year and hopefully a new way of life that differs from the last 10-12 months.  I'm not sure how to feel about that because, on the one hand, I understand the sentiment. 2020 has been a year filled with chaos, ...
