The Joy of Being Known for Happiness


One of the joys of being me is that my friends, and even total strangers, think of me now as a happy person, or sometimes “that Happiness woman.”

The result of this is that folks are constantly sharing things with me on Facebook and via email that are for and about Happiness. I love this!

Two different people sent me this article, and so I realized it was time to share it here.

The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying.

Here is the paragraph I find to be particularly heartbreaking (and inspiring, to those with the time to do something about it):

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier. ”Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.”

If you aren’t sure how to choose Happiness, here are a couple of quick pointers from this blog:

And if you want a Happiness workout program, with all the techniques and exercises to tone your happiness muscles, get Happiness as a Second Language. And let me know what you think, or if you need a little extra help.  That would make both of us happy.
