Happiness is a funny thing, isn’t it? One day, it’s right there… right in front of you. Then, just as quickly… it’s gone. Why is it so hard to hold onto happiness?
Maybe more importantly, is there a way to shift into happiness, nearly at will?
I am always concerned about how lightly we take happiness. Our culture makes it THE goal, and not a part of your goal. But worse, happiness often ends up being about waiting for something to happen. Notice: HAPPy and HAPPen. Same root. It is about something out there happening to make you happy.
My guest this week, Michaela Renee Johnson, believes that happiness is really about making constant resets. It is about looking for and finding the points of happiness… not waiting for them to just happen.
After an unorthodox childhood (based on family necessity), Michaela became something of a free-spirit wanderer. She finally found her way to her calling as a psychotherapist… and spends her time helping others “speak their truth with grace and live a courageous life of authenticity.” Something she did, herself.
Listen below on how to find happiness through constant reset.
