How do you spell H A P P I N E S S?

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design into the present.  Happy people do a lot of things.  They spend time expressing gratitude, cultivating optimism, practicing kindness, nurturing loving relationships, committing to meaningful goals, savoring life’s little pleasures, and so on and so forth. But they NEVER… Mind other people’s business. Forget about what others are doing.  Stop looking at where they are and what they have.  Nobody is doing better than you because nobody can do better than you.  YOU are walking your own path. Seek validation of self-worth from others. When you…

Are you a closet “creative”?

Are you a closet "creative"?

Elizabeth Gilbert’s name is synonymous with her fantastically bestselling memoir, Eat Pray Love. Eat Pray Love was borne of a moment of total collapse in her life. And you can call it “chick lit,” but it’s inspired millions to move forward with their lives, differently. Through the disorienting process of becoming a global celebrity, Elizabeth Gilbert has reflected deeply on the gift and challenge of creativity. She defines creativity, in life as in art, as choosing the path of curiosity over the path of fear. This has resonance for our common life too. And, she says, it’s not to be confused with…

Would you believe Maria Shriver’s mirror has cracks?

Would you believe Maria Shriver's mirror has cracks?

Maria Shriver’s life is often summarized in fairy tale terms. A child of the Kennedy clan in the Camelot aura of the early 1960s. Daughter of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who founded the Special Olympics, and Sargent Shriver, who founded the Peace Corps. An esteemed broadcast journalist. First lady of California. She opened up with Krista Tippett during a conversation on her show, On Being, about having a personal history that is also public history — and the ordinariness that is her life and any life, however glamorous on the outside. We experience the toughness for which the women in Maria…

Are you friends with the elephant in you?

Are you friends with the elephant in you?

“Zookeepers typically strap a thin metal chain to a grown elephant’s leg and then attach the other end to a small wooden peg that’s hammered into the ground. The 10-foot tall, 10,000-pound elephant could easily snap the chain, uproot the wooden peg and escape to freedom with minimal effort. But it doesn’t. In fact, the elephant never even tries. The world’s most powerful land animal, which can uproot a tree as easily as you could break a toothpick, remains defeated by a small wooden peg and a flimsy chain. Why? Because when the elephant was a baby, its trainers used…

What airbrushed social media cannot show you.

One Insanely Popular Love Story that Breaks Too Many Hearts. “We make our relationships so much harder than they need to be.  The difficulties started when conversations became texting, feelings became subliminal, sex became a game, the word “love” fell out of context, trust faded as honesty waned, insecurities became a way of living, jealously became a cyclical routine, being hurt started to feel natural… and running away from it all became our go-to solution.  Let’s stop running!  Let’s start working together to face these issues—to break the cycle, to communicate, to appreciate, to forgive, and to LOVE the people…

Wondrous Magical Times

Wondrous Magical Times

“The child held to her daddy’s hand. She stood upon his feet, and as they danced to the music, their closeness was complete. Excitedly, the little girl would wait for her daddy to speak, and as she danced in his footsteps, he knew one day another’s love she would seek. Time whirled her far from her daddy’s footsteps, into lost dreams of a magic time, void of knights and steeds and damsels saved and music filled with rhyme. Old daddy wiped away his daughter’s tears of sadness and then the tears of strife, and then held to his child’s hand,…

 A Gift for Graduates

 A Gift for Graduates

“This morning I was reading a book at my favorite beach-side coffee shop when an 18-year-old kid sat down next to me and said, “That’s a great read, ain’t it?”  So, we started chatting. He told me he was getting ready to graduate from high school in a couple of weeks and then immediately starting his college career in the fall.  “But I have no clue what I want to do with my life,” he said.  “Right now, I’m just going with the flow.” And then, with eager, honest eyes, he began asking me one question after the next: “What do you…

5 Hard Things You Need to Start Doing for Yourself on Hard Days

5 Hard Things You Need to Start Doing for Yourself on Hard Days

“On particularly hard days when I feel that I can’t endure, I remind myself that my track record for getting through hard days is 100% so far. And, I remind myself that hard days are necessary, to live through and to learn from.  The hardest days make us who we are, inside and out. So many of us are afraid of ourselves, of our own truth, and our feelings most of all.  We talk about how great the concepts of life and love and passion are, but then we subconsciously hide from them every day.  We hide from our truest…

It’s Spring! Don’t worry; be happy.

It's Spring! Don't worry; be happy.

There’s a truth in life that some people refuse to accept: You have no control over many of the things that happen in your life. Some people who resist this truth become control freaks. They micromanage, refuse to delegate tasks and try to force other people to change. They think if they can gain enough control over other people and the situations they find themselves in, they can prevent bad things from happening. Others know they can’t prevent bad things from happening, but they worry about them anyway. They fret about everything from natural disasters to deadly diseases. Their worries keep them occupied,…
