A couple weeks ago I wrote about starting over, poverty and going through pretty awful times. So, how do you find yourself again and your happiness after going through something like that? Sometimes you have to focus on happy. Purposefully create and inspire to find your happiness. It is not gone - you just have to find it. Here are my 5 Ways to Find Your Happy. (Part 1) Check out some of these other great ideas - start with one and start working your way through them until you feel yourself coming out from beneath the cloud. You know...the cloud of forgetting what exactly happy is. Perhaps thinking you may never have it again? Sometimes it doesn't just show up, you have to go out and get it!
