Be Happy and It Will All Take Care of Itself!
As a Wellness Coach, I encourage clients to improve their "happiness quotient" by eliminating tolerations and getting their needs met. By looking at the interpersonal aspects of our lives we see what it is we are tolerating, and by recognizing our unmet needs, we can then put a plan in place to live more happily. These interpersonal aspects may include love or fear, conflict skills, conflict resolution, communications skills, connectedness, community, support, inclusion, friendship and last - but certainly not least - play.
A facebook friend recently posted this song by Natasha Bedingield.
The lyrics for "Happy" follow:
Landlords knocking at my door cussing me out
Got laid off my job the night before
Can't figure how I'm gonna fix tomorrow
When yesterday's still a mess
Can you tell me what's the point man
It all seems meaningless
I wish that I could step away and breathe
This world's trying to swallow me
Clear away the clouds inside my head
Someone just tell me
That it's ok now
What are you worrying about
Got my dreams, got my life, got my love
Got my friends, got the sunshine above
Why am I making this hard on myself
When there's so many beautiful reasons I have to be happy
People lie, people hide, people cry, people fight
And they don't know why
If fear is all that we should fear
Then what are we so afraid of
'Cause fear is only in our heads
Any day I'll go bad thinking bad
Everyone is against me and the world wants to fight me
Preparing to battle an enemy unseen
During my stressing I'm blinded to the lessons
That could be a blessing if I'd be confessing
That the enemy I'm trying to beat is hiding
Inside of me
Keep your grind on girl . . .
It's your love,
It's your world
May you be happy in mind, body and spirit!
