You are the BEHOLDER OF “THE HAPPY.” What are YOU holding? Today you’ll find out…

Is it possible that the “search for happiness” is causing us more harm than good?”

Not all happiness is happy…

Oftentimes we say, “I’ve found my happiness.”

Hmm? “I’ve found my happiness”…really? Where? What did it cost you? Is there a money-back guarantee? Expiration date? Owner’s Manual? Terms of Use? Privacy policy? Really?

Looking for it?

Conditional happiness could be hazardous!

What if what you’re looking “to get” isn’t “gettable?”

Happiness isn’t something we get.

What if you’re trying to get something that can’t be gotten, but has been forgotten?

Perhaps the reason you’re not feeling it, is because it’s been FORGOTTEN.

Happiness isn’t something you find, or that finds you.

It’s something you create, because it’s already in you.

Are you willing to receive it, and create with it?

You can’t find something you’re not willing to create.

You’re the HAPPY MAKER, and no one else can do it for you.


Are you willing to bring the happy?

And more importantly, are you willing to bring the JOY?


Start with this…

(J) Justification elimination.

(O) Open heart replacement.

(Y) YOU discovering YOU.

Choose to be the JOY + Happy Maker, and commit to YOU today.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Write out the word, J.O.Y.
