Go On, Get Happy


The Dalai Lama said, “The very purpose of life is to be happy.” We couldn’t agree more.

Most of us don’t like hearing happiness is in our hands, especially when convinced the world’s out to get us or we’re secretly enjoying a pity party of one, but being happy for the most part, really is a choice.

So, how can we choose it? Let us count the ways…

The easiest? Schedule it.

You know what makes you happy so take a moment and think of one thing you can do today to make you feel that happy, joy goodness and add it your calendar.

Phone call wine date with that old friend who totally gets you? 15-minute “me time” break with a latte and brownie a-la-mode? Walk in nature? Yoga?

Decide it and do it.

And while you’re at it… you know those people, thoughts and things that frustrate, annoy and make you feel flat-out bad? Go ahead and skip em’ or at least cutback.

You really can let that call ring to voicemail, nix that social media craving and let those bad thoughts go.

Life isn’t all sunshine and roses for anyone all the time. We all face dark days and hard times. But you deserve to be happy and have permission to choose it!

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.
