Strategies to feel better now without spending a dime and taking baby steps.
Bloom Where you are Planted
Manifest your dreams from right where you are right now.
“Bloom where you are planted.”
Saint Francis de Sales 1567-1622
Why Bloom Now
I tend to say everything is simple. “Bloom where you are planted”, is a fact, where else are you going to bloom? You don’t get to get up and go “bloom” in your boyfriend’s house. The truth is you are carrying all that drama along with you. You don’t get to change towns or buy a new home to find what you are looking for; because every night you still have to lay your head down to sleep and remember that you have dragged it all along with you.
You bloom where you are planted by starting exactly where you are, and with what you have right now, in most cases is a lot.
Be Happy in this Moment
Being happy is not predicated on what you have, what you do, what you have to do, or what your living conditions are at this moment. Granted that is exactly what we think it should be. (more…)

Part two of Four Stages of Happiness
My goal is to share tips and tools that are effortless in most cases. Once you start with effortless, doing things that take a little more effort don’t seem as hard.
Make Someone Smile
I said, “Without spending a dime.”
Make it a goal to make at least one person smile each day. That is the base goal, anything else after that is extra. It can be a coworker or the homeless person on the corner. Do your part each day to share the light. This is a secret task you have to yourself, and no one else has to know you have accomplished this goal each day.
Say Thank You
It doesn’t matter if you can’t find one thing to be grateful for right now. Also picture me giving you an epic side eye because you can find at least ten things to be grateful for right now, so there.
Focus on things that delight you
The Four Stages of Happiness
I’d love to share my four stages of happiness with you.
The Four Stages of Happiness
There is a range of feeling happy; it goes from feeling good to Bliss Particles. I started to notice these stages when I took it upon myself to cultivate the happy habit
Feeling good is not feeling bad, anxious, worried, scared, fearful, or guilty.
It means not anticipating feeling bad in the future, or remembering when you were feeling bad in the past. When you are feeling great you feel a sense of wellbeing, like you know you will be okay.
You feel in control, and know you can power through whatever comes your way if you keep a calm head, relax, and observe what is going on around you. (more…)
You Can Be Happy Now
You can finally stop searching for “Happy” and just Be Happy.
Making the decision to cultivate the Happy Habit is going to be the easiest decision you’ve ever implemented in your life and the most beneficial to your life.
You Can Be Happy Now. How simple is it?
Then start slow and watch the universe help you generate the momentum you need to become…
A surefire way to change your mood now. Why not feel better now, there is no need to linger in negativity. Feel Better Now.
We all have moments in our lives when a dark cloud dumps a feeling of total helplessness on you and you feel that everything, every effort you have ever put into anything has been for nothing.
You could be experiencing the crushing sensation of supreme sadness, depression, helplessness, fear, loss, loneliness, and powerlessness. What a list, by the time you get to the word fear, you are starting to think the sun will never shine again. However, you will be quite wrong.
How to Feel Better Now.
Acknowledge that you are feeling like crap at this moment. You know it, and so does everyone around you, so excuse yourself, remind yourself that it is just a wave to ride out, and do the following:
Have a Good Cry
Have a good cry, my favorite is in the shower Sob it out. Cry. Woe is you. Why? Because that is how you are going to feel right now. Put on some super sobby (yes, I said “Sobby”) spa music, pop in the shower, and let your hot tears mingle with the hot, hot, water. You will remember to think about your blessings and things you are grateful for when you are done feeling sorry for yourself, but right now baby, SOB IT Out.
