Independently Happy

I take happiness seriously. So you don't have to.

About Shayne

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Shayne!

That’s me right there on the right–at the bottom if you’re on a mobile device–happily enjoying some morning coffee.   And having a pretty good hair day!

You may be asking yourself, “Self, why should I read the blog of a self-proclaimed average guy?”

I’m assuming you call yourself “self.”

Why should you listen to me?

Don’t listen to me.  Listen to Bruce Lee.

This is my tale, my blogcumentary, if you will.

I’m like you.

I’m shy, an introvert. I don’t make enough money (yet) to travel the world and drive an Audi. I’m mentally exhausted after a long day at the office.

I want to spend more time with my family.

and on Halloweens, this

That’s a little creepy.

I’m frustrated and struggling just like you.

Just like you, I’ve got a spouse, kids, a pet who deserve my time. Just like you, I’ve got bills to pay, but never enough time–and sometimes not enough money–to pay them.

I have faith though.

I’m working to get to where I can give my family and friends the time they deserve and take my family on travels all over the world. I’ll probably pass on the sports car thing.

I’m going to build a life of my own and document it right here. In my blogcumentary. I’m going to show my kids that they never have to feel stuck. I want to show you that too, because…

If I can do it, you can do it.

And I’m doing it.

I’m not guru.  I’m an anti-guru. What does that even mean? I can’t tell you what to do.  I just come up with ideas and try things that you can also try. I read every book and blog I can find and listen to every podcast I can find.

I’ll make some calls if I have to!

Whether you want to cheer me on or join me (or jeer me, but that would just be mean), this is the place.  Let’s go. I’ll go it alone if I have to, but I’d prefer some company. I prefer to have co-conspirators on this little adventure of taking back our lives and giving it those who deserve it.

Opportunity is everywhere.  It’s all around us, like the Force.   We just need to let go and use it.

At least I hope that’s how the Force works.

Oh, and this is my alter ego.

Hello.  I like to chime in now and then.

It’s more like interrupt. My alter ego will interrupt now and then. He means well.

See up there at the right, towards the top where it says, “Subscribe to my blog via Email?” Please do that. Let me know you’re out there, and I’ll let you know I’m here. I think we just did.

Let’s do this thing.
