WEFOUNDGet Happy: The Life of Judy Garland


If you have struggled to lose weight because you find you  can’t stick to a diet  then we have something in common! I struggled for years with little or no success until I learned that I had to change my thinking first, and that leads to the ability to change actions.

Now that I have the tools I needed to win the mental game, I want to try to help other people who are like me lose the weight too. So I am working on developing a  motivation program  based upon my weight loss journey that I want to share.

I am  building a community of weight loss warriors who want to help me perfect my motivation program and also help to motivate me and each other! If you’d like to participate please join my Facebook group and follow my blog.

Everyone feels sad sometimes. In many cases, sadness is a normal human reaction to different life changes and events. The good news is that everyone also has the capacity to feel happiness and that there are things you can do to unlock that capacity and feel better.

According to Gerald Clarke’s Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland , at one point, the famous actress looked at the doctors who were treating her for drug abuse and declared, “There is something you fools do not understand. I am an addict. And when I want something, I can get it.”

Unfortunately, between Garland’s celebrity status and her appetite for self-destruction, this comment proved all too true. Men, drugs, food, and (though one wouldn’t think this would be desired) people who belittled, cheated, and abused her — she had it all, which probably accounts for her death at age 46.

Clarke admirably details Garland’s life from its beginning, when she was born Frances Gumm and indoctrinated into the family show-biz act commandeered by her mother, to its sordid end, where she was on her fifth marriage and died of an accidental overdose. Clarke often adopts a sob-sister tone when deconstructing Garland’s career — he is given to extensively quoting John Milton, and he calls one of Judy’s manipulators an “artful Iago.”

Everyone wants to be happy in life. While individuals may define success or measure happiness differently, there are some basic qualities of a happy life that seem to be universal. Studies have shown that no matter where you begin in life, how you consciously live through your adult years will determine your overall lifelong happiness more than your financial situation, or even your happiness at an earlier age. [1] Learning how to live better and feel more positive about the world around you can help you live a happy and meaningful life.
