Love and Happiness

Love. How do you explain love to someone who's never experienced it? What is love?

It is an opening. A deep understanding of the root of life, on a subconcious level. It is beauty. Beauty like that which you have never seen with your eyes nor heard with your ears. It is a connection, a knowingness. It is seeing yourself reflected in another, and knowing your own inner beauty. It is a strength. A strength that wells up in the core of your being. A mighty power of will that cannot be defeated. It is vulnerability, but not weakness. It is courage and freedom, and innocence. It is Fierceness and joy. The leap of faith that takes the Eagle off the mountaintop into the sky soaring amongst the clouds into the twilight of the sun.

It is acceptance. It is joy. It is sadness. It is what makes life worth living. It is something that can never be taken from you. It is what I feel inside.

Happiness is not a place you can be travel to. It is not something that can be bought. Or sold. It is a spiritual experience attained through living each moment with love, grace and gratitude.

Anaya, I love you. Thank you for teaching me to live my life with Love. And for teaching patience. And compassion. Because of your teaching I often walk the path of happiness, even when I miss you.


  1. Camara, i love how you can put things into words! No one knows what you are going throu/dealing with unless they have walked the road you have walked. You walk down your path in life with such poise and confidence you inspire other moms to push forward during the dark times. Thank you for being the strong woman you are! Im dying to know how brent is doing? How is Solara? with rays of love and sunshine from ottawa. love Chandra, Justin & Arianna

  2. Camara, i can not tell you enough how much you inspire me. I have lived my life in a constant state of depression (well thats what it feels like) and i dont know why i just am. But reading of your strength is medicinal to me. I try and read your words everyday. Those are my good days. I know its time to pull up your blog when i cant seem to find anything right. Today is one of those days. May i ask one tiny favor of you? My grandpa is passing away from lung liver and colon cancer. Can you just pass a good thought or two to help him on his journey forward? i know he will feel your strength, and i know cuz im asking you your sweet angel is with him helping him along. And Anaya, your welcome to visit my daughter (if you havent already), and sweet Anaya will you ask my grandpa to come with you to meet his first great grand daughter? much love to you all xxoo chandra and family

    1. I have held a space of love for your Grandfather.
      Depression can feel like an unbearable weight. Don't let it pin you down. Keep your mind and heart looking for the one thing that is beautiful in the moment and hold on to it. It will lead to another, and another. You will find your way out of the darkness.

  3. They are always with us in "the one moment".
    It is what I know because they show over and over that they walk with me.
