Are you Happy?
And I mean, truly happy – unconditional, soul-filled, joyful happiness? I’ve experienced what it’s like to look like I’m happy on the outside, but deep inside craving to fully embody what true happiness was.
I had an idyllic childhood until a tragic event rocked our family and changed our lives forever. I remember feeling like the lights of my life were switched off. I was living in a darkness that felt like it would never end. I bottled everything up and was very unhappy, but that’s not what others saw. In essence I wore a mask – happy mask on the outside, unhappy on the inside.
I lived like this for many years and it 100% drained me. I was living life according to what I thought other people wanted for me. Actually, I don’t even think I would call it ‘living my life’ – I was going through the motions and was on autopilot. I was settling for a life that I did not want. I had something stirring inside me – I wanted more. I wanted to be happy.
So, I did something uncharacteristic for me – I decided to be happy. I started to change the way I viewed myself and the world around me.
I gave myself permission to be happy. I didn’t need to live in that darkness anymore. It was time to turn on the lights and experience the joy I longed for. And that’s exactly what I did.
I asked myself:
- Who do I want to be? If there were no restrictions on me at all, who could I become?
- What do I want to do? What possibilities are there for me in all areas of my life?
- What’s my purpose? Why am I here … that’s a biggie!
- What legacy do I want to leave? What difference do I want to make in the lives of others and in the world around me?
I did a major life overhaul and put myself first and by deciding to be happy, guess what happened? I became happy – truly, unconditionally, unapologetically happy!
Now that doesn’t mean everything has been a walk in the park. I’ve had tough times throughout my life but I haven’t allowed that to stop or define me.
Showing myself the pathway to happiness started my business in 2012 and now I teach others to step into their power and know that they have the choice and the human right to be happy.
That’s what I do – I help people to be happy … at work, at home, in any area of life. I help people to dream big and believe in what is possible and then help them make it happen, whatever ‘it’ is.
