I recently met a fabulous lady, Kimberly Montgomery from FiftyJewels.com and I am happy to introduce you to her today. Kimberly has an energy and passion for life which shows through in her writing. Her main purpose is to help us find Happiness and Joy in our lives and I’m excited to share and be an affiliate for her next project – ‘Finding Your Joy’.
How to Find Happiness
I have a secret.
I can read your mind. Really.
(Even though we’ve probably never met, and I know virtually nothing about you.)
But I DO KNOW this one, very important thing about YOU. And here it is . . .
You want to feel HAPPY.
Did your heart catch a little when you read that? Yea, I know the feeling.
Behind all the wants — bigger house, shinier car, new clothes, great shoes, loving relationship — behind all of it, what we all REALLY want, and need, is to be HAPPY.
You just want to feel light, joyful, excited about life. HAPPY.
Why then, does it seems so hard? And so far away?
Wait — don’t be hard on yourself, you’re not alone. The search for HAPPINESS is one we all share. And it’s easy to feel frustrated about not feeling HAPPY as much as you’d like.
So why do we all suffer from a HAPPINESS crises?
Great question, you smarty-pants you!
The problem lies in how we’ve created the world around us and what we have decided, as a culture, is important.
The fact is, we’re looking for HAPPINESS is all the wrong places.
Let me give you an example:
What do most of us do when we first wake up in the morning?
- Think about our never ending To-Do list
- Obsess about the problems we didn’t solve yesterday
- Worry, worry, worry
- Wonder if we’re late
- Chastise ourselves for not being perfect
And the list goes on . . .
And this is just our morning routine!
The really bad news is this goes on in our head ALL DAY LONG.
And then, at the end of our day we reach for the Chocolate, Wine, Netflix (Yes! I have been watching YOU!), because we have a life we need to RECOVER from at the end of the day.
Life has become a battle, and we’re worn out.
And then we wonder WHY we don’t feel HAPPY.
What if you woke up tomorrow, and instead of doing your usual STRESSFUL morning mental dance, you asked yourself:
“How do I want to feel today?”
Doesn’t that sound lovely?
So here’s the GOOD NEWS.
Being HAPPY is easy. You just need to learn a few simple steps to start turning your life into a HAPPY, JOYFUL place to be.
I promise you, it’s super simple when you know a few easy tricks.
Sue and I would like to invite you to the life changing Webinar, ‘Find Your JOY’ on September 7th. You’ll learn WHY life feels so hard, WHY you feel drained and the 3-Step Formula for creating more HAPPINESS and JOY in your life.
I hope you’ll join us. The world needs more JOY!
