How Blogging Helped Change My Life


That's why I can say yeah--I think I'm happy now! ~ from my first blog post  16 Oct 2011

And the next few years went a little something like this:
Yeah! I THINK I’m….happy.
Yeah? I think I’m happy?
Yeah! I THINK I’m happy.
Yeah! I think I’m happy! Yeah! …Happy!

LOL!  It’s been an insightful and, at times, surprising exploration of happiness. Some of you have joined in and helped others and me with your thoughts and stories. Many thanks to you and to everyone for being here!

This blog has been a testament to self-exploration—it’s good for the soul. It’s been proof as to why we need to ask ourselves the uncomfortable and probing questions about how we live and view our lives.  No one’s going to do it for you. 

Well, I’ve asked, contemplated, laughed, cried, wondered, and came to a realization. 




Happiness is being in relationship with God, Jesus and Holy Spirit. Happiness is enjoying the bountiful blessings of this earth that our Heavenly Father has created for us. Happiness, for me, now includes enjoying a more fit life, cooking and finding new and interesting ingredients to sample!  After all, God did say that:  

“Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. ~Gen 1:28-31

And on that note, I invite you to continue blogging along with me into a new chapter:

I’m Trinka Polite! Georgia native! Aunt Extraordinaire (at least I think so)! Lover of divinely delicious food! Servant of God and I gratefully accept my calling as counselor, poet, and speaker. My mission? 

As a counselor, it is to empower you to access your full potential and live more authentically!

As a poet, it is to share words to inspire love, deliverance from hurtful situations and encourage a renewed relationship with God.

As a speaker, it is to provide a dynamic experience which will actively engage you and your group in learning and growing.

My professional background includes over 14 years as a Career Counselor providing education planning and career guidance.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and National Board Certified Counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology.  My publications include After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground—poetry collections focused on spiritual awakening and growth.

On a more personal note, the southern lady that I am loves to cook (have you seen my Pinterest board?) and have fun with my family!  Are there any two things that bring more joy to a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south)? Lol 

I hope we stay connected because new ventures are on the way to enlighten your mind and to partner with you to chart a course for your success!  

Peace & Blessings!

Trinka
