Ok, there ya go! That is my new Yahoo group. I started it as a way to encourage active conversation between all of us like minded people! In the meantime I have talked to some people and maybe a Yahoo Group is not the best way to go about doing this! Maybe I will add a Forum to my blog. We will see. ( I am actually working on a Forum already, so if a Forum will be better than I am ready!)  In the end I do not care which one works, I just want to get people talking!

Anyway….I thought I would post here my recent post on the Yahoo group so that you could see what is happening over there!

So here ya go-

Posted earlier today on my Yahoo Group!

I write often about how to achieve Happiness. I even have an old blog by the name of “From Here To Bliss” devoted to happiness. I guess that is where this all started. I started that blog on Aug 11, 2009. I then moved on to Our Souls Purpose in Dec 2010. I have learned a lot in that time and I have grown. But the one thing, and there is more than one thing, that is the same is my quest for Happiness and the knowledge that I and YOU can have it!

Back in the day I felt it was something that I had to chase, now I do not feel it is mine to chase, I feel it is mine to have as I want it. It is a matter of choice,some days are harder than others, but it still comes down to a matter of personal choice.

Below is a quote that I think explains how I feel very well!
I believe gratitude= happiness.

What about you?

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” ~Denis Waitley
