Sometimes I am overwhelmed.

It’s crazy when I think about it. Not three years ago I was a broken man. I was hopeless. I was in a marriage that was ending with someone I loved very much but could no longer live with due to a number of things. That is not the point though. She is not an evil person and neither am I.

What I think is crazy is, that if you had asked me three years ago, what I thought the future held for me…I would have said pain and sorrow. I was convinced that life was just a constant recycling of the same actions that got you nowhere.

Well, I realize now that is so untrue. I went from overwhelming grief to overwhelming joy in a matter of a few years. I am overcome with emotion. The full range of them. Some of them I am having to deal with for the first time in a long time and it feels really strange.

Day by day though I learn. One step at a time. When I feel something strongly I take a step back and assess where those feelings are coming from and try to figure out what to do with them.

Yes, that is right, the advice columnist is human and has issues of his own :-). thankfully though, the universe planned for me to be able to deal with the extreme emotions I feel by being equally as logical which allows me to take that step back and assess.

Don’t get me wrong it is not an easy thing to do but in nearly 40 years I think I have the hang of it.

All in all it has been worth it. I have learned to appreciate every emotion for exactly what it is…yet another small piece of the very complicated puzzle that makes me…well…me!

Peace, love and happiness always,

Welcome to my blog!!

Hi, I am Kaspr Goodman and you have found my blog. My home on the web so to speak.

Enlightenment

A couple of years ago I set out on a journey to rediscover happiness. It had been so long since I had felt real happiness, I was not sure I would ever find it again. I had actually forgotten what true joy felt like.

I spent a lot of years in emotional pain, then I spent quite a few more completely shut down. It was the only way I could survive the horrors of everyday life and continue to push forward no matter what life threw at me.

I have spent the last three years learning who I am, what I love, what my boundaries are, and how to experience happiness. It has been a long journey, and I still have quite the road ahead of me but I have finally regained my happiness. I have finally learned who I am and have come to accept my strengths and weaknesses as things that are part of what defines “me” instead of things that describe me.

By writing this blog, my book, and answering questions for the masses it is my sincerest hope that I can inject love, happiness, compassion, and care back into the world by helping others be as happy with their lives and all the things that happen in them as I am with mine.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I am really looking forward to growing together with you over the foreseeable future.

Peace, love and happiness always,

K
