What To Do When Life delivers, “What the F***?!!??”

101What can you do when life delivers, “What the F***? The power of happiness in our life is undeniable, to say the  least, but what happens when things appear to be so bad that you feel inclined to take a dive into the pool of depression that is always lurking?

Currently, my son is living through a totally awful, hurtful, preposterous situation. For all you parents out there you understand that no matter how old your children get, when they hurt, you hurt. So, I am hurting deeply at this time. I feel the pain my son has to endure and it makes me so sad that he has to deal with the circumstances that someone else has caused him to suffer.

Is Happiness Overrated?

 Is happiness overrated? In my opinion, happiness is underrated. Most people I know are so busy getting through the day they do not take the time to focus on happiness. The Law of Attraction tells us simply that when we are happy we will automatically attract more things that make us happy. But most of us are focusing on all that needs to be done and what we get are more things that need to be done. Continue reading

Feeling good is a Great Start

6Feeling good is a great start to any day. What do you do to feel good in the morning? My routine is a bit much for most people but it makes me feel so good I actually feel as if I am getting younger. The way I feel most days is what gives me the discipline to do all I do.

Let’s take today for example: First thing was an hour meditation, next I took a break to drink my supplemental GoChi juice along with a healthy shake I made with fruit and all kinds of heathy seeds and nuts. Delicious! Next, prayers then forty minutes on the treadmill to great music while smiling as much as possible. Continue reading

Get Fitted For Attitude

Get fitted for Attitude. How does your attitude fit your life? We get our clothes altered to fit our body, but what about our attitude? How often do we even think about our attitude or make adjustments? As a recruiter and sales trainer my job is to motivate others and I often tell my team, “Attitude, more than aptitude, will give you altitude in life.” In order to motivate others I need to keep myself in a positive state. This is something I work on every day. For me, the attitude of gratitude works the best. If ever I feel a bit down I make a list of all that I am grateful for. Gratitude brings me right back up.

Can We Have Happiness, Heaven, and Peace?

just be happyHappiness and peace is every one’s own choice, but when you look at your life do you find happiness, heaven and peace? Do you feel inner peace? The world around us reflects back to us what we project, and what we look for in life affects what we see. This universe is one huge container of energy and is in constant change. Everything is contained in this container so whatever you look for you are able to find. When you look for love, you see love. When you look for hate, you see hate. When you look for heaven, you will see heaven. Heaven is here, now, if you choose to see the love in the life around you.

Can Gratitude Deliver Happiness?

Can gratitude deliver happiness? Gratitude is the great multiplier. Being grateful for all the good things in this life comes easy for me, and it always helps to perk me up if things sometimes look dim. However, being grateful for something you wanted that you did not get…that took much more effort for me.

Several years ago I went after a job that I was certain was the perfect fit for me. It was just what I thought I needed. When the job went to another candidate I was very surprised and disappointed to say the least. After the shock passed I thought about how can I be grateful for not getting the job I wanted?

How To Be More Positive

thoughts are energyWhy is it important to know how to be more positive? Do you pay attention to what you think? Your thoughts really do matter in creating your life. My own experience has taught me just how powerful thoughts really are. When someone asks you, “How are you?” what is your response? Just that one answer can enhance your life over time. If you respond with, “Alright.” “OK.” or ” I’m Good.” is that positive? Those responses are not positive enough to get you into the positive state of creating, or increasing your happiness level. According to Rhonda Byrne in her book The Power we need to get ourselves  over the 50% positive mark to be able to attract and create the life we desire. Good, OK, and alright are not over the 50% mark, so in a sense, they are negative.

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.

Oh, How Good it Feels!

101Oh, how good it feels!Some days are definitely better than others, right? Today at work it was a little bit slow and I found myself watching the clock which I rarely do. With several hours to go I knew this was not going be a fun afternoon so I asked myself the question, ” What can I do to make this a great day?”

One thing I learned a long time ago is that sitting around waiting for something to happen does not deliver great results so I had better do my best to make something happen, so that is what I did. I grabbed a cup of tea and went to my office and picked up an assignment my boss had given me that was already complete but I asked myself the question, “What can I do to make this better?” Continue reading

Where Do I Go From Here?

woman-570883_640Do you ever find yourself wondering; “Where do I go from here?” That is the exact question I am asking myself now. I know from experience that when I ask  questions the answers will come.

For some time now I feel like I am coasting and do not feel driven to get to a goal. Mind you, I work everyday at something I love, hiring and training sales people for a large automotive group in the Philadelphia, MMCO Auto, that includes Audi Conshohocken, Porsche Conshohocken, Audi Wynnewood, Audi Reading, Volkswagen of Reading, and three large Warehouses where we sell used cars. This is a huge responsibility that I take quite seriously. Plus, I write and promote my work on my off hours. I am a busy woman! 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
