An idea worth spreading
Happiness is not about having what you want - it's about wanting what you have. An old saying, but still true. Another good oldey is treat others the way that you wish to be treated. These simple ideas can make your life better and bring joy to others.
I'm passionate about
I am a wife. I am a mom. I have compassion for others, and love dogs. I am passionate about things that are positive and happy. I know how short life is and we should not waste any of it.
Talk to me about
I love to talk about children. I am saddened by neglected children and wish that no child would feel lost or alone in this world. When people treat cars better than their kids, I get so offended.
People don't know I'm good at
I am good at analogies. Sometimes I use cartoons or fantasy to describe what I am feeling or tell a story. Using analogies also takes away the pain of the reality and gets my feelings out.
My TED story
I began to use TED after reading a question about making a hard decision. Joining in gave me answers and strength to make the very painful decision that I was faced with. I have many alone hours due to having illness that causes me to be indoors most of the time. The TED community is a very special place that exercises my mind and allows me to have "company" on otherwise lonely days. It has allowed me to find comfort with my own issues as well as feel proud to try and comfort others with theirs. Sharing experiences and information on TED reminds me of a book store only better. Because in a book store, while you can also choose your topics and gather information, you don't get to ask questions and get responses. Wonderful experience for all ages.
