Hi, welcome to my blog.  My name is Wendy McCance.  I live in Michigan with my husband, 3 kids and 4 pets.  This is my first attempt at blogging and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you as well as hear your opinions.

As I am getting older, I have been questioning my choices in life more than ever.  I believe I’m going through a huge transition where quality of life, a happy family and an overall sense of peace and contentment are the things that are most important to me.   The challenge is to figure out how to tweak other areas of my life to achieve the ultimate happiness that I am searching for.

I encourage you to share your thoughts and look forward to hearing from you.  I would like this blog to be an interactive experience where everyone can swap little nuggets of wisdom and share personal stories of their own moments of finding their happiness.

Thanks again for your interest in my blog.  I hope you enjoy searching for the happiness with me.

  15. Well spoken WEndy, when we face difficult challenges in life we come to a crossroads, stay where we are, take the safest option out of fear or take the step of faith with courage and dare to believe that our most cherished dream can come true.
    take great care and God bless.

  16. I love that you found your own happiness. I think big events (such as health issues) really make us stop and reevaluate the path we are on. The more challenges you face, the closer you will get to finding out what’s really important to you.

  17. Greetings from Australia Wendy,
    I fully understand where you are coming from, I’ve been asking myself the same questions, especially after having had serious trauma and neck surgery after having several serious car accidents. I’ve made up my mind to gradually give away clothes and belongings to charity that I don’t really need, and make do with the bare minimum, so that I can work yet still do that which I love and am passionate about …”Photography.”
    God bless you

  30. Wendy,
    Hi neighbor, I noticed we both live in Michigan.
    I’ve been reading some of your blogs, very interesting. I know what you mean about the feel of certain houses. The last one I bought just felt right, and it still does after 4 years. Keep writing.

  31. :-) LOL… once you’ve read my blog a time or two more, you will understand my laugh there a little better… Yes, I enjoy ramblings.. mine, and most anyone else’s, too…. so I’ll look forward to yours with anticipation…. New dialogue is one of my favorite things in life these days….

  32. Hi,
    Thank you so much. You made my day!! I’m so glad that you enjoy my ramblings. :)

    Posted by wendymc12 | April 14, 2012, 2:11 pm
  33. Howdy! gigoid here…. I came by to check out your blog, and will immediately be following… You had me after today’s post, the first I saw, that had zero spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors that didn’t appear to be either deliberate (artistic license, I use it a lot…) or a typo, which happens to the best of us, including me, on what seems like a daily basis….Any who, I’ll be notified when you post, so I will see you around the comments sections…. take care, & Blessed Be….

  40. I’ve never heard of it, but now I’m intriqued. I love inspirational books and well, reading in general. Thanks for the recommendation.


    Posted by wendymc12 | March 29, 2012, 12:06 pm
  41. Your mission–your search for inner peace and contentment– reminds me of a beautiful little book I once read by Anne Morrow Lindbergh called Gift from the Sea. I think you would like it!

  42. Hi Laura,
    Writing this blog has been so rewarding. I swear my brain was stuck on not knowing who I was and what I want in life before I started the blog. When I began the blog, I decided I needed to be completely honest. Not just for myself, but I wanted to be as authentic as possible for the readers. The people, such as yourself that I have spoken with along the way have been amazing. I’m excited for you. You are going to get such a tremendous feeling of validation as well as a ton of love from your readers.


    Posted by wendymc12 | March 28, 2012, 11:35 am
  43. Hi Wendy! I’m glad you found my blog so that I could find yours in return! My own experience is that we all (at least those of us who are semi-conscious) hit a point in our lives where we ask ourselves if what we have – what we’re creating – is what we really want. I commend you on getting clear on what you want to create in your life and taking steps that you believe will lead you there. You go girl! xoxo Laura

  44. Hi Wendy,
    As a new blogger, I think you are just brave! It is tough being out there in the public domain, even though it is by choice, and I thought this blog of mine may be useful for you to read http://kateswaffer.com/2012/03/20/optimism-and-blogging/
    You will find your own voice, and this will change as your writing changes you. Your readers will also change you, and this is truly a blessing (often in disguise).
    And thanks for swinging by my blog too, glad you have enoyed it so far.
    Speak up, speak out, do your own thing.
    Kate :-)

  45. Hi Mike, I always appreciate different points of view. Thank you for your critique. I’m sure my blog isnn’t as polished as some blogs you have read. I have only been blogging for a few weeks. Writing is completely new to me. Hopefully you are enjoying the stories enough to continue to come back and watch me grow.

    Posted by wendymc12 | March 18, 2012, 9:30 am
  46. Hi Wendy,

    I read a couple of you blogs. They are a little mixed up and need more structure. You will find it easier if you decide the ending before you start writing and work towards that as you write. It takes time to get into being able to write a blog a day and take them well structured and interesting.
