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

Is Happiness Really Important?

A happy heart is magicalThe question is: Is happiness really important? To start: Happiness breeds success. Most people think that success gives us happiness but it truly is the other way around. But how can you be happy in a world with so many stresses and upsets? The answer is simple: You choose to be. Your happiness is in your hands…or should I say in your mind. Every feeling and emotion we have starts in our mind. To pump in happy thoughts has its rewards.

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.

“When You Feel Good, Good Things Happen”

you are the author“When you feel good, good things happen!” is something I say quite often. I do believe strongly that feeling good is super important. We are magnetic and feeling good attracts more experiences to feel good about.

Happiness is our own creation whether we are aware of it or not, and happiness expands when we feel good and that is why I repeat that statement often. How much effort do you put into feeling good? Most of us do not even think about how we feel but the truth is that feeling good is the foundation for creating a happy life.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
