Why I Don’t Want a DNA or Ancestry Test

Why I Don’t Want a DNA or Ancestry Test

This post contains affiliate links. The new popular thing to do is take an ancestry test using a DNA type sample that you mail into some facility. While this sounds really neat and I’ve enjoyed hearing my friends share their results, I personally don’t want one. Maybe it’s because I watch too many Forensic Files or other police type shows, but sending my DNA out to some facility just sounds sketchy to me.

Just Take your Happy Back

I believe human beings simply want to be happy. I believe every single one of us deserves to be happy. I also believe that happiness does not hurt others and it doesn’t bring down others.

Happiness Emerges from Deep Within Laugh Often Laughter has been missing from my life. I had no idea

For about two months my life basically involved working one day then being down and out for two days. I would curl up in a ball and not be able to move. I am pretty sure that I was experiencing depression on some level. This depression was situational, of course, and it has since passed but it took a toll on my financial status and bills.

How do you Make Money Blogging?

How do you Make Money Blogging?

This post contains affiliate links. Lately, I have been trying to figure out who I am all over again. Going through a completely crazy scenario, that really hasn’t fully ended as each week there’s something new to deal with pertaining to that chapter, I lost myself. I started focusing on “making money” to pay bills, versus doing what just came naturally to me all those years ago when I first step foot into my living room to work at home.
