The Counterintuitive Secret To Daily Joy All Happy People Live By

Who would have thought that feeling sad, angry, frustrated and every other icky feeling in between could lead to big, big happiness?  Honestly, I was a little taken aback when I was first given this advice, but maaaan did it help. Forget about bottling up and ignoring all the 'bad' stuff. The trick is to sit with it, feel it, process it and then let it slide away. Then hooooge joy can flow.

When Someone is an Asshole, Write Them a Love Letter

Dear Darla,   I hate your stinkin’ guts. You make me vomit…   You know when people say “I have commitment issues”? Yeah, that’s not me. Decision issues, maybe. But not commitment. When I decide to do something, I lock it in tight and throw ‘what if’s’ out the window. Well, there’s a saying that I took to heart; You can’t control other people, you can only control your reaction to them.

How to Show Your Heart Chakra Some Love (Elite Daily)

A slightly edited version of this article has appeared in Elite Daily - you can check it out here :) I’m feeling inspired to talk about love and the heart chakra today. Pretty sure it has more to do with having Pharrell’s “Get Lucky” on repeat this morning than the flood of emails subject lines spewing up Valentine’s Day reminders. Regardless, writing about the warm and fuzzies doesn’t happen often so I’m rolling with it. You. Are. Welcome. Alright. Your Heart Chakra. Kind of a big deal when it comes to living with big love, attracting it, radiating it, keeping...
