Feel This Moment and Create a Great Life

Always do your bestThe other morning while doing my exercise routine listening to music the song ‘Feel this moment” came on by Pitbull and Christina Aguilerra. The song really got my adrenaline going and my mind began to wonder about all the moments that get lost in thought during the day. How many moments do we really experience fully? Continue reading

Can Our Words Effect Our Happiness?

5So what does ‘Happiness and the Words We Speak’ have to do with anything? Well I will tell you this: Everything! I just heard someone say the other day when something went wrong, “That’s my job. I mess up everything.” I gasped when I heard those words because I knew this was not true. Never allow anything to pass your lips that you do not want to see manifested in your life…ever! Continue reading

Put Happy In Your Holidays

winter_dolls-t2For many people the holidays are a struggle and that is why I offer a few suggestions on how to put the ‘happy’ in the holidays. Do you struggle to get along with your family or the in-laws? This is a challenge for many people I know and makes me so grateful that I have a family I love to spend time with.

First, make the decision to be happy. That’s right, simply decide to be happy, no matter what, and remember that no one has control over what you think and feel. If you are around people who push your buttons, accept this going in and refuse to react. I suggest to watch yourself as if you were watching a movie and act out being happy. When you change your reaction the dynamic of the situation changes like magic. Continue reading

Soul Happiness

Do you have Soul happiness? My journey deep within has given me a soul sighting, hence the title of my book, Journey to my Soul.The day I saw my own soul changed me, especially in the way I see myself. I now understand that my body is truly a vessel for the spirit to use. I also understand that happiness elevates our vibration and makes us easier for the spirit to guide us.

The only words I can find to describe what I saw are; Divine light, feminine beauty, pure, unaltered love. When I look at myself now I see the divine light and beauty I have within and I no longer focus on what I used to perceive as my physical imperfections. Continue reading

How To Pump Up Your Happy Meter

25What do you do to ‘pump up your happy meter’? Do you even think about how happy you are? This is one area in life I am an expert; Happiness. Due to ten years of living in what I consider to be hell, my focus on the positive not only got me through the horror, but delivered me “heaven.” Heaven, I discovered, is a state of mind. More so, a state of being, but it takes a concentrated effort, and a true commitment, to put happiness first.

Let’s use our imagination for a moment. Imagine you are a balloon. To prepare a balloon to expand we first stretch it. So, allow your mind to accept a new idea. Now, imagine the helium as positive thoughts. At first, the balloon is resistant, as are you. But once enough helium (positive thoughts and feelings) is inserted, the balloon expands and begins to rise. Once past the halfway mark the balloon takes flight, and you (the balloon) float above all the negativity. Continue reading

What Happens When Your Happiness Takes a Slap in the Face?

What happens when your happiness takes a slap in the face? Happiness is not a constant state and is affected by many circumstances. I woke up Monday morning, October 7th, in my usual frame of thankfulness. As I got up and sat on the edge of my bed I remember saying, “thank you,” for another new day. In that very moment as my slumber lifted tears began to fill my eyes and I just did not want to go forward into this day. I felt so tired and weary. Continue reading

Is There a Positive Side to Pain?

#34 cookieIs there be a positive side to pain? Pain is a part of life but suffering is our own creation. We get physical and emotional pain during a growth period. Pain can act as a catalyst to let us know we need to grow, evolve even. When we lose someone we love, we hurt, no matter. But with acceptance we can feel the pain but do not suffer.

Our human nature wants to avoid pain at all costs. As parents we want to protect our children from the pain of life. But it is impossible to get through life without some kind of pain. Pain is just part of the process. Continue reading

Is it possible to shift into happiness? Yes!This is an area where I have become an expert. What you look for in life definitely affects what you see. Are you conscious of what you look for in your day? Are you conscious of your thoughts?

Can A Limiting Belief Interfere With Happiness?

Can a limiting belief interfere with happiness? Absolutely, limiting beliefs hold us back in so many ways. My own experience has taught me well in this arena. Many years ago I went through years living with circumstances that caused me deep, emotional pain. The situation was out of my control, and only by surrendering to God was I able to get through this pain and live a positive life.

When that period of pain ended my happiness increased but I always told myself. “People say that ‘time heals all wounds’ but my wound will never heal because I will never get that time in my life back.” This is what I believed for twenty-five years not understanding the limit I placed on my own happiness.

What is the Secret to Success?

What is the secret to success? What makes a person successful? With hindsight I can see clearly what developed my successful career in sales, and to my own surprise it is not the hard work that I did or the long hours. Funny, because that is what I was taught, but hard work actually has little to do with the outcome.

Success begins in thought, as does everything. Success is a mindset. When my career in sales began I was living with horrible circumstances where I needed to train my brain to stay in the present moment or be swallowed by the sadness. I made a commitment to be happy, which to me, is my biggest accomplishment. Continue reading

How Do You Find Peace Within The Pain?

36In trying times what can be done to maintain a positive outlook or how can you find peace within the pain? For me, seeing people I care about hurt or have big challenges to overcome, is difficult. As a parent I want to fix whatever my children’s problem may be and spare them their pain. As a friend I wish to help my friends anyway I can, and sometimes there is nothing I can do but pray.

How Do You Measure Your Happiness?

How do you measure your happiness? Funny how life happens. The very day I sent my book off to be published the door to a job opened after twenty-two months of unemployment. Talk about Divine Navigation. The car business is not exactly my first choice for employment, mainly due to the long, long hours, but back to automotive sales management I go. My trust in the way life works gives me the acceptance I need to make the adjustment without resistance. This is no easy task. I leave my house at 7:30am and return home between 9:30pm – 11:00pm Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I get a break and leave home at 1pm and return home between 9:30pm – 11:00pm… you get the picture? Long, long hours and never two days off in a row. I do get Sunday off with a day off during the week, unless it is the end of the month or we have training.

Happiness Matters

all happiness to youWhy do most people not realize that happiness matters? According to, Shawn Achor, an author who speaks in his Tedx Talks video about the happiness advantage, speaks about how we as a whole push our happiness to the other side of success which makes happiness virtually unavailable to us.

According to Shawn the minute we reach a goal, immediately we need to be or do better and our happiness gets pushed off to the future. The prize carrot, which is on the end of the stick, keeps moving as we get closer. Our happiness becomes just an illusion and we never get to experience our own joy. I am exhausted just writing about it. Continue reading

The Heart and Soul of Happiness

What is the heart and soul of happiness? According to many experts it is believed that the Soul attaches to the body by way of the heart. The heart is the first organ of the body to develop and when the heart stops beating the Soul departs the body and causes death. So all makes perfect scientific sense. Continue reading

The Power of Happiness

I am very grateful to be plugged into the power of happiness. Just as exercise strengthens the body, meditation strengthens our connection to the power of our soul. With physical exercise, when you first begin, you may feel some pain afterwards or have sore muscles. If you continue to exercise routinely that soreness subsides but you still feel the muscles you worked for hours afterwards. The exercise brings an awareness of your body into your consciousness.

Happiness is in Your Hands

How is happiness in your hands? What is happiness? What does happiness mean to you? According to Webster’s dictionary the meaning of happiness is a state of well-being and contentment. To me, happiness doesn’t mean laughing and having fun all the time, although laughter can certainly elevate your state of happiness and is highly recommended. Happiness is really being OK with what is, acceptance, being in peace.
