It's our natural right to be happy, right?
So why do we get in our own way?
Many of us have these stories that we tell ourselves- and I think it's time we begin to tell new stories.
So many clients have struggled with this- feeling of "never enough," "I don't deserve it," or "unworthy" or "unlovable."
The list goes on.

Not just a once in a while feeling-
BUT a deep, down, serene, peaceful feeling of Happy.
That means finding a place of calm within the chaos- even when the storm is all around- you're connected to that place within.

6 Practices to Cultivate Happiness
1) Accept yourself fully - You are not the same person you were 10 years ago, or even 1 year ago. Honor yourself- (warts and all!)

3) Find your joy and follow it- This is where you get to listen to the callings of your heart. .
4) Gratitude List- The surefire way to lift your mood, and get back to happy. Find that..one exquisite moment each day that touches your soul.

6) Strengthen your relationship to self- Find time each day to sit with your inner being
