Welcome. I hope you find all the happiness you are looking for and that, in some small way, I can assist you in finding it.
Just over five weeks ago I started in an entirely new job. Same industry, but new people, new systems, new role. Embarking on a new job, or an exciting project, is like setting sail on uncharted waters. It’s a thrilling journey, a mix of anticipation and excitement. And because I’m a naturally positive person, who …
Four years ago I developed a program to assist with the culture where I worked. It was to help the staff to work on feeling and becoming happier in their lives. Each weekly class consisted of 3 things:• Some data, research, facts and statistics• A story• An exercise to work on for the next 21 …
Waiting to cross the road yesterday I heard one 50’s-something woman saying to another … “I just feel so sad about her death – I mean, it’s all that they’re talking about, and showing pictures of, on the TV all day, and then all night. It’s just making me so sad”. As I crossed the …
Hi, I’m Sue and for many years I’ve been searching for what my life’s mission is.
I’ve always believed that I can do anything that I set my mind to. This has had me pondering on being a policewoman, a lawyer, an air stewardess, real estate agent, a barmaid and a teacher, just to name a few of the jobs that have crossed my mind over the years.
I love people and I’m fascinated by how we choose differing careers. When I wanted to apply to university to study HR in my late thirties I was so excited my STAT results that I thought briefly about doing medicine instead. The fact that I faint when I get a paper cut only briefly deterred me.
I have always been a glass half full, positive and happy person. I am naturally optimistic, and generally expect good outcomes to every situation; learning lessons and steering to correct if ever the result is less than optimal. But I took this for granted for most of my life, not fully realising that the whole world doesn’t think like me.
I’ve now realised that through the medium of social media I can share some of my thinking and research on how to live a happier life through small changes every day. Letting go of habits that don’t help you to feel uplifted. Finding gratitude for everyday occurrences. Appreciating nature, breathing in fresh air, creating social relationships that feed your soul.
You don’t have to feel or be happy 100% of the time, but I hope that by you stopping here I can help you raise the bar on your base level of happiness.
