Rediscover the Secret that Once Made You Happy
I’m always amazed as I hear from you, how many out there feel unappreciated. This seems especially true for many of you moms, so I’m dedicating 2015 to “The Year of the Mom!” I want to recognize all the great wives and mothers out there who do so much for the rest of us. My challenge to you in the coming year is recapture the happiness that you once had, or find a way to share it with others.
Let’s face it, life isn’t always easy, there’s a so much going on. As an adult it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lose sight of the things that once made us happy. When you stop living with purpose, it’s easy to feel unaccomplished. But it hasn’t always been like, has it? Didn’t you once dream of this day? The day of a family, a home, maybe a career. Maybe life has changed and some of those dreams have slipped away. Either way, you can get that happiness back. It’s not up to anyone else to validate us, this life is ours to live and it all starts by following your heart, making the most of every moment and celebrating even the smallest success.
Think back to a period of life when you were truly happy. Why do you think of that time? What was it that made you so happy? Chances are you’re thinking of a time when you were following your heart, driving toward a goal. Chances are that happiness, didn’t come because of the praise of others, true happiness most often comes from inside. It’s a gift that the universe grants to those who are living their life with purpose, following their inner compass and striving to improve the world around them.
I’ve created this video as a reminder of a simple truth told of in The Compass. It’s a truth that I believe at one point or another we all know, but along the way we might forget. It is such a simple lesson, but the more I talk with people, the more I realize how difficult it can be to put in practice. If we are not careful it’s easy to lose sight of who we are, the truth is you are pretty amazing. Never forget that.
I write stories to inspire, uplift and motivate. I write stories with morals, I hope that you will follow your own personal compass in 2015 and rediscover the happiness that for so many is missing. The Compass is the Story of one girl who discovers what’s possible, when you choose to follow your heart. I hope enjoy it.

I’ve often heard that in order to have what you want, you sometimes need to let it go. This is easier said than done. As humans we crave consistency, stability and the familiar, but life has a way of giving us just the opposite. It deals the card we need, not necessarily the ones we want. The trick is learning to make the best hand possible.
