Amazingly, it hit me after the Ash Wednesday mass. I was able to fully understand how I can find inner peace and true happiness. People normally have qualifiers to become happy. Some people will say that they will be happy if they have lot's of money, food or even having something new... For some it's the immaterial stuffs, like being with the people that we love, doing our favorite activity, professional success and the like...
We commonly use the statement "I will be happy if" or "If I ... then I will be happy"... We have the belief that we need reasons for happiness. After the lessons that I have learned from life, I have realized that Happiness is a choice. We can always choose to be happy, regardless of the circumstances or the things that we have. No matter what happens God is always there to watch after us and take care of us. Even in the darkest moments of our lives, we always have the option to dwell in the moment or be happy and move forward.
We normally hear the the phrase "The glass can be half full or half empty. It's just a matter of perspective". Problems are an inevitable part of life, we can always feel bad and do nothing or start finding ways in resolving our life's challenges. The dimmest light of hope can be seen In our darkest moments... Just like the stars that shines brightly during the darkest nights.
We are forged by our experiences in life, we become better with every surpassed challenge, we become wiser with every resolved problem. Life teaches us so many valuable lessons which we do not understand because we take them for granted.
Happiness is a choice, we can always be happy and have peace within ourselves!

Dear God, please give me the capability to accomplish my goals exemplary, the strength to overcome the hurdles ahead of me and wisdom so that I may always have the rightful decisions. May I live a life that pleases you in every way. I love you dear God and thank you for your continuous guidance and for all of the blessings that you have given me.
"Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished.
The devil said to him, 'If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread.' Jesus answered him, 'It is written, 'One does not live by bread alone.''
Then the devil led him up and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And the devil said to him, 'To you I will give their glory and all this authority; for it has been given over to me, and I give it to anyone I please. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.' Jesus answered him, 'It is written, 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.''
Then the devil took him to Jerusalem, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, 'If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, for it is written, 'He will command his angels concerning you, to protect you,' and 'On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.'' Jesus answered him, 'It is said, 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.''
When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him until an opportune time." [Lk. 4:1-13]

This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT! This virus will wipe out your private life completely.
This has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open WORK or even look at WORK have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly.
If you do encounter WORK via email or are faced with any WORK at all, then to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words "I've had enough of your crap... I'm off to the pub." The WORK should automatically be forgotten by your brain. If you receive WORK in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the WORK to your garbage can. Put on your hat and coat and skip to the nearest bar with two friends and order three pints of beer (or rum punch). After repeating this action 14 times, you will find that WORK will no longer be of any relevance to you and that "Scooby Doo" was the greatest cartoon ever.
If you should come into contact with WORK put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest pub. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolator-Neutralizer-Extractor (WINE). The quickest acting WINE type is called Swift-Hitting-Infiltrator-Remover-All-Zones (SHIRAZ) but this is only available for those who can afford it. The next best equivalent is Cheapest-Available-System-Killer (CASK). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
Send this message to everyone in your address book. If you do NOT have anyone in your address book, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life. This virus is DEADLY(Destroys-Every-Available-Decent-Living-Youngster).
Update: After extensive testing it has been concluded that Best-Equivalent-Extractor-Remedy (BEER) may be substituted for WINE but may require a more generous application.

A lot of things happened, things that are worth writing, unfortunately ... will be left unwritten.
The experiences that I've had taught me valuable lessons... lesson that made me a better person.
... Many things have changed ...
