My Story

DenaAugust 5, 2009

  • I want to show you the path to happiness by sharing my story.
  • I want you to know that you can be happy and you can find peace.
  • I suffered from severe depression and anxiety for the first half of my life.
  • Ten years ago I began Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) was the first step toward saving my life.
  • Simply put, CBT is changing negative irrational thoughts into positive rational thoughts.
  • Three years ago I had a moment of revelation and accepted the fact that I, too, deserved happiness.
  • I began my journey.
  • Without much effort, I lost seventy pounds.
  • I learned how to be happy.
  • I was still searching for my life’s purpose.
  • In March of 2009, I stopped resisting the will of the Universe.
  • My purpose was revealed to me.
  • I am meant to help others live happiness by sharing my story and the lessons that I have learned along the way.

      Hi Dena,
      Congratulations on your transformation. I am a former 'heavy person' myself and I too suffered in a dark and lonely place. I know now there were many angels along the way that helped me get on track. And today I am so grateful – not only for where I am now (happy!), but for living through that very difficult time. Without that period I never would have developed my depth for compassion nor would I be able to feel such gratitude for the 'little things.'
      Thank you contributing your happy blog and your journey. Kim
