I recently attended an event at the home of Laura Turner Seydel, where I heard Melissa ‘Emme’ Aronson, the creator of *EmmeNation, speak about happiness. She said that happiness is a choice, and that it’s not always easy.
You have to work on it because there are always going to be people or circumstances that will try to detract from your happiness. “You need to be happy in your own skin,” she said.
Everything you do can affect your happiness – and the first step is taking care of yourself. When you are healthy and feeling good on the inside, you can start to feel empowered and those small changes can make a difference. Emme challenged the audience to set aside time to find the inspiration to seek out happiness, whether it’s making more time for yourself or indulging in a hobby.
Take time today, even if it’s just a few minutes to really focus on what puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step. Who knows what you may discover?
