About Happyness Life

Happyness Life was created to provide a safe space for me to write about my personal experiences while I work towards implementing Happyness into my life. What is Happyness Life? Honestly, I'm figuring it out as I go, which is completely unhelpful to those who are thinking I've discovered some sort of magical way to go about my day and be happy doing it.

Since my dad's passing in 2018, my entire life has shifted to seeking out Happyness Life while still maintaining responsible adulthood. Happyness is a word that my dad misspelled in a letter he written to me when I was a young child, and I discovered it on Father's Day of 2018. 

This space is NSFW featuring open, honest, and raw content.

There will be cuss words (because I actually love swearing IRL) and I'm going to talk about subjects that may be uncomfortable for some. So if you are not keen on reading about how a person is trying to reclaim their sexual self, are triggered by conversations surrounding sex, abuse, eating disorders, and flirting with being sober curious/drinking- you have been warned. I will be dredging up some of my personal experiences that are uncomfortable for myself to talk about because I feel that it will help me carve a path in my life that will lead me to Happyness.

The road to Happyness is not an easy one. I've had to come face to face and acknowledge that as a human, like most humans in the world, I'm a little fucked up. Aren't we all? It's actually embracing and acknowledging that it's okay to be so. However, if you are wanting to live a fulfilling life, you have to decide if being fucked up is the way to be, or if you should get your ass in gear to work on healing and accepting. Sometimes all you need to do in order to heal is accept, and sometimes you actually have to work on shit.

I've discovered I'm that mix of one who has to both accept but also work on stuff.
I realized that I really wanted to write about my experiences, but find it easier to type than to write by hand. I also realized I needed to make space for these writings because they are so unlike everything else I write about.

My greatest gift is my art of storytelling and writing and my ability to have a case of the "fuckits" when I write about something that is really truth-telling. Some folks might learn something about me that makes them uncomfortable, and for that, it's both "I'm sorry and you were warned." 

Take into consideration that for me, writing is my greatest therapy and that this is possibly more for myself than it is for other people- but at the same time, if it helps other people, it's not so bad. 

Thank you for visiting, and following me on this journey of self-discovery. I'm 35 years old and pretty much figuring out who I am (isn't that what life is? A continual journey of self-discovery?)

May you discover your Happyness Life.

Finding Acceptance and Inspiration

If you had told me 10 years ago that some women liked porn...I don't think I would have believed it. It seemed like such a "man" thing. It seemed so out of line with what I thought women would like...what I would like... What did I like? In my younger years, after we had a satellite dish installed, I discovered the Playboy channel. I watched shows on it a few times, one being Sex Court, which I found entertaining and the other was a talk show ( can't recall the name. ) I remember feeling curious yet totally worried about being " caught "...there was shame associated. Even though, it was the most actual sex education I ever had. Now, this may come as a shock in one way or another to you, but... I like porn. It's a profound, " holy crap " sort of realization that is completely liberating. For a long time, I blamed porn for part of why my relationship with my ex-husband was not great in some areas. What I didn't realize at the time, it wasn&#

Buzzfeed Air Vibe Review- Two Thumbs Down

It's been a while since I've written a sex toy review, and I'm here today to write a review on a vibe that absolutely...completely...sucked. In a bad way. I'd prefer to simply not write a negative review, but after looking online I felt I had to so. more folks could read that this toy may not be all that it's cracked up to be. I found a Reddit thread that said BB Boutique aka Bellesa possibly only published and/or made glowing product reviews viewable and did not publish any review that was negative. To be honest, I was excited and purchased the Bellesa x Buzzfeed Air Vibe BECAUSE it sounded flipping amazing. Boy...was I going to be proven wrong. The Air Vibe is a combination clitoral sucking/g-spot vibrator that is bendable to fit a wider variety of bodies. Unfortunately, I'm built in such a way that I absolutely could not get it to cooperate with me. With the g-spot portion inserted, I was hard-pressed to get the clitoral sucking part to line up with me in a

My Body Mythology- The Second Offense

I remember one evening at 10 years old, I went to the bathroom and noticed something on my underwear. A mysterious dark spot. I freaked out. I thought something was wrong with me. I told my mom. She said that I might be starting my period and to put a pad on.  If I woke up with something on it, I was having my first period. GREAT. Womanhood starting at 10. It's not like I wasn't already embarrassed that by the time I was in 4th grade my breasts were developing. I was already seen as weird. Now I had my period at 10, right before starting 5th grade. I woke up the next morning with blood on the pad. I was so very, very sad. My mom printed out information for me so I could learn about my period and what it meant. It was very straightforward. There wasn't specialness to it or any sort of celebration- it was all matter of fact, and thanks to the internet, the conversation was very simple. I remember giving a note to the teacher, letting her know that I might have to go to the nu
