I am privileged to be joining over 100 other women today who are spreading the message to others around the world to choose happiness in the midst of life’s messiness. It is also a celebration of the official release today of best-selling Publisher Linda Joy’s new book, Inspiration for a Woman’s Soul: Choosing Happiness, which features the soul-inspiring stories of 27 amazing women who share their personal stories of transformation. A special shout out to Peggy Nolan, whose friendship makes me happy and whose words grace this book!

For a limited time you can get over 40 transformational gifts with our copy of Choosing Happiness at http://bit.ly/Happiness_Book

Just as the voices of the authors of each chapter of this book are varied, I immediately went into the world of a mind map when mulling this word in my own life and the varied pieces, components, compartments, experiences, and feelings of happiness. It became impossible in the moment to choose one time or one aspect to write about.

Instead, I choose to share my “threads” with you in no particular order and knowing I barely scratched the surface. Perhaps, just as I thought of many events with each strand, this will prompt you to travel through your own life and sink into your experiences, thoughts, and dreams…or wherever else you are taken.

So…HAPPINESS…my partial list

Being happy/feeling happy

Happiness in the midst of…the contrasts

Outer happiness…new mug…new pen…new journal…new page…new jewelry…

Sighting of the tiniest thing that surprises and is beautiful or quirky or amazing

My daughter…my pregnancy…her birth…her life…always

International Facebook connections through writing…Miracle Morning…

The Miracle Morning every single morning without missing…thank you, Hal Elrod!

My accomplishments


Surface happiness versus deep happiness


Being a lioness and a dragonfly…and so much more

Walks…especially at my favorite park and all the connections, if even just a smile



My cats…current and all who came before…treasured memories

Other cats

All animals and their capacities that are far beyond our comprehension


Untangling and reconfiguring life


Exercise…or maybe it is the results…the feeling after…

Being more self-disciplined than I think I have in me


My imagination

My childhood

My bed

Teen years…music…concerts with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic

College…its own four years…some happiness, some not

Adult…young…mid-life…and now

Love…Valentine’s week…can’t leave that out

Spiritual growth…reading…connections…mentors…writing

Creating…speaking…calling others forth to their best…connecting…new people

Freedom…of all kinds

Coaches Training Institute…coaching…Leadership…Panda

Warm weather…summer…all seasons, really

Glass of water that quenches thirst

A sad “no” in the moment that later becomes grateful happiness

Accountability partners…synergy group



Sunsets…rainbows…hawks lighting outside my window…egret flying by…surprise!

Good surprises

Being known

Happiness versus joy…happiness and joy

And on and on and on and on…bringing beautiful perspective to my day

How grateful I am

I am going to keep playing with the list
