Loss. Heartbreak. Heartache. Depression. Your happiness isn’t lost, it’s in need of healing. Today I’m going to teach you how to heal it. Imagine what YOU, and your life, would look and feel like if your happiness was at a whole new level of health…

Everyone talks about finding their happiness or choosing it. I often talk about creating your happy. However, what if it’s already there, but it needs some tender loving care in order to heal?

This is exactly what’s happening, and this is how to heal your H.A.P.P.Y.

You must heal your…

H. – Hope.

“Her hope isn’t full.”

If you’re running on empty. Stop and fill up.

Walk in full.

Full. Filled.

Hope is your positive expectations. Your beliefs, desires, and trust.

What would it take today to fill up your HOPE tank?

You have to be willing and brave enough to get your hopes up.

No one has ever died because of disappointment, but people have failed to live a fully, happy life because they’ve been afraid to get their hopes up.

Elevate your expectation.

A. – Awareness.

Not unaware.

Not numbness.

Awareness is not numbness.

Numbing your sadness won’t heal your happy.

If you desire to heal your happy, you must become consciously aware.

And sometimes that means, painfully aware.

You must be willing to feel some things that don’t feel so good.

Allowing yourself to feel it, in order to heal it.

Don’t run from your feelings.

Don’t run from yourself.

Perhaps you’re actually running from your own happiness?

Stop running from your happy.

P. – Purpose.

Your purpose is real simple. It’s your INSPIRATION. It’s what inspires you.

What is it that inspires you?

Stop trying so hard to figure it out, and instead, engage with what inspires you daily, and your life will be inspiring.

Your inspiration will heal your happy.

P. – Play.

Play is vital to your happiness.

It’s required for action, brain development, and getting you out of your head.

If you stay in your head, you’re dead.

You must be willing to come out and play.

Get out of your head.

If your happy isn’t fully healthy, chances are you’ve been spending way too much time in your head.

It’s killing you. It’s killing your happy.

Get out of your head.

Allow yourself to come out and play…and begin to heal your happy.

Y. – YOU.


Why do you do what you do? Why do you seek happiness?

Why do you desire to heal your happy?

The WHY (and the Y) stands for…YOU.


This is why and how to heal your happy.

It’s starts with YOU.

Healing YOU. From the inside, out.

From above, down, inside, and out.

Allowing yourself to heal.

What have you done lately to receive the gift of healing?

To receive the gift of LIFE?

Health is full expression of life.

Healing is YOU receiving your FULL EXPRESSION OF LIFE.

And not only receiving it, but sharing it.

Sharing YOU.

Are you willing today to receive the full expression of YOUR LIFE, and to allow yourself to begin sharing it?

Sharing the YOU that’s uniquely you.

Sharing the happiness that is YOU.

Sharing what makes you happy.

It starts with YOU.

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


How happy are you, really?

Take a look at each of these 5 areas — your hope, awareness, purpose, play, and you.

Then ask yourself how can I heal “this” today?

Take ONE action.

Create a plan to take action in each of these 5 areas. Put it on your calendar. Commit to it. Commit to YOU.

Commit to healing “your happy.”

Thanks for tuning in today, and every day…and allowing me to SIP ON LIFE with you.
