What’s the Word?


I don’t do resolutions.

Instead, every year I choose a word that I want to focus on.

Usually I print it out and place it in various places where I can see it …. the bathroom mirror, the coffee maker, the car.

Previously words have been  “shift” (twice), “presence” (2013), “love”, “clarity” and “balance” to name a few.

This year I have chosen the word “happiness” .
Isn’t that what we all really want?  To be happy.  
What’s your happiness IQ?  Does it change from day to day, hour by hour?
What we believe and tell ourselves or self talk, on a regular basis shapes our happiness level.
Have you heard yourself say ….  I wish I were happy. I am always broke. I can’t seem to get ahead. I hate the way I look. 
What if you told yourself this?
I love the way I look when I see myself in the mirror.
I have an abundant and happy life.
I feel connected to Nature and all living things.
I am living the life I have always dreamed about.
Each day when I awake, I commit to loving myself fully and caring for my body with nutritious food, plenty of rest, inspiring relationships and happiness.


Happiness is in the Present.

Change your thoughts
and you change your world.

~ Norman Vincent Peale ~

The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.
As you think, so shall you be.

~ William James ~
