Dzień Dobry: Madison's Polish Heritage Club Spring Festival


A little background about my lineage. While I know I have a wee bit of Irish in me along with German and maybe one or two other things (I really don't know that much about my ancestry), I know without a single doubt in my mind I'm VERY Polish.

When I say I'm very Polish, I mean my paternal grandparents, lovingly referred to as my Babcia (grandmother in Polish) and Dziadzia (Americanized Polish pronunciation for grandfather) actually migrated from Poland in the 1950's. My father and both Ciocias (aunts in Polish) grew up in a Polish speaking household and thus, my sister and I grew up with a lot of the customs and learning a little bit of the language.

Thanks to my good friend Alisa of alisabroad.com, I was able to reconnect with my Polish girl roots and attend Madison's Polish Heritage Club's Polish Spring Festival earlier this month!

Synopsis:


Happiness is not just another emotion and state of being that most individuals find unachievable in this day and age of violence, illness, constant go-go-go and stressors, but a conscious and subconscious choice people can and do achieve as hard as that is to believe. Throughout The Happiness Perspective, Diane Wing (author of Thorne Manor & Other Bizarre Tales, Trips to the Edge: Tales of the Unexpected, and The True Nature of Energy) beautifully outlines just how people can realistically achieve this tranquil state of being by compiling different ways to help you transform your daily thought processes, patterns, habits, and behaviors so you can experience greater happiness and peace of mind in this crazy world.
