Hey, Folks...Coolred is back online. Did ya miss me?

So it has been a hectic few months of late and I just did not have time for this blog. I took it off line for awhile so that I wouldn't feel that constant nagging pressure to write something on it. Now I'm all settled in and ready to get back to doing what I love doing....however, a few things have changed since last I wrote.

1. I became a Grandmother (did I mention that) and that was and is awesome. 
2. I decided, unlike my mother, that I wanted to be a part of my grand daughter's life...and so I made the choice to do that...and in order to do that I moved back to Bahrain. 
3. I have been here about a month now and it has been pretty busy with new baby (well about 5 months now) and life in general. Living with my daughter and hubby now but working on my own place. Playing babysitter in the mornings until I find my own job. 
4. I discovered the trick to being happy. You just decide...to be happy. Yeah...it took 44 years but I finally figured it out. Now if only other people would let me enjoy my new found blissful state instead of insisting this is only a temporary condition and will not last. No..it won't as long as you keep poking away at it with your negativity. 
5. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring...but I can't wait to find out.

At any rate, I already have ideas for posts so expect them to come fast and furious...InshaAllah.

Stay tuned...and thank you for all the inquiries into where I had disappeared too...blog included. Nice to know people miss you when you're gone.

Chiara said...

Congratulations! You sound very happy with your decisions. And the rest of the gang? :)

Thanks, ladies. 4 are here as well, one stayed behind with hopes of joining us at some point. He has some things he still wants to do and experience over there.

I am happy. Rather odd feeling. Like trying on someone elses clothes...fit well enough but just don't feel like yours.

Good to see you back though I was fortunate enough to keep up with you on Facebook, thankfully. Glad to see you are doing well!

Being happy isn't just a state of mind. There are the intrinsic human imperatives such as hunger, thirst, safety & security etc. Your new grand child also fulfils a basic biological desire. So you should be happy! Don't be sad be HAPPY!

Oh, hello, Coolred, I've missed you a lot! I am so happy to feel this positive vibe from your blog. Yes, be happy, you deserve it! So glad you decided to be happy. Did the same and it worked for me too. Still unusual, not suffering, no stalking, no dramas but feels great. All the best to you and your family! Will follow you regularly again!
