Curator of Happy Endings

I've been accused (on more than one occasion) of being a curator of happy endings.  So much so, I've decided to adopt the tagline and give it a home.  I love cute stuff like that!

Service with a smile comes naturally to this Naked Blogger... and in abundance.  Sometimes to the point of exhaustion, but always with a smile none the less. 

When my autoimmune disease kicks up its wicked heels (throwing wild parties at my expense), I know it's time to tone things down a bit.  Then... a little rest and relaxation becomes the tall martini of the day ;-) 

The Happy Ending Lessons I've Learned... usually begin with creating better boundaries, saying NO to the spirit crushers of the world, and pursuing only those things that bring passion and happiness.  That's my simple recipe for happiness in life and in business.  What's yours?

I too go and give until I can't.  Then I rest and go again.

Melinda (Mel) Peterson 541-659-1620 - This was a perfect post for me to read today. I've had to start putting my foot down lately in a few situations and just say "no" because of the negativity surrounding those people.

Mel~ When we have challenges in our lives that are out of our control, we need to keep life simple. It's a valuable lesson.

It's a recipe that has taken years to perfect Joanna ;-)

I'm happy to be the tickler for putting your foot down... Nicole ;-)

Balancing challenges is a challenge all by itself... Donna ;-)

My passion is creativity and it tends to take over and I won't stop until I have finished what I'm working on.  I know to take a break, and sometimes I do....but really what's a missed meal or two or lack of sleep in the scheme of things????

Hello Mel ... very well said and thanks for the read

Always a charming and delightful read from you, Mel.  Passion, commitment, and the pursuit of living in joy - that's my recipe. Huge hugs to you, my friend. We need to catch up one of these days. Lol.

Did someone say Happy Ending? That reminds me, I need to schedule a massage.  Happy ending or NOT... Happy New Year to a special lady making others happy every day. Best wishes always!
