Happy Fix® gives you the tools to live your happiest life!
I believe in people owning their own lives.
But everybody has obstacles on the path to their best selves. I know. I’ve been there.
About 10 years ago my husband had back surgery. It impacted every facet of our lives.
Health. Finances. Work. Kids. Recovery. We struggled to get back on our feet and back to living our lives as fully as possible. It wasn’t easy.
We had to make some pretty substantial changes. Nutrition, exercise, jobs, support. Life changed.
But the most important change was our mindset. We were at a fork in the road. We could succumb to the physical, emotional, and financial challenges we had or we could make a conscious decision to live life on our own terms.
We chose to stay positive and productive.
We did what we needed to do to shore up our physical well-being. We set goals for what we wanted our lives to look like. We dealt with both the outer and inner challenges that kept us from our most authentic and happiest life.
And we did it together.
For me, it started with books (not surprising since I’m a school librarian by day) and positive affirmations that I put into my daily routine. I decided to get healthy in body, mind, and spirit. We continually reinforced to our sons that they could do anything and be anything they wanted to be and, coincidentally it rubbed off on us.
Fast forward to 2017. We moved to our dream location near the beach and have jobs that we both love. Today, we are frequent visitors to the gym. We kayak. We have authentic and loving connections with friends, family and neighbors. Our sons are off on their own following their dreams.
Our lives are not perfect. But they are damn good. And when challenges arise, as they often do, we stop, assess and figure out how to get around, over or through them.
For anyone reading this, I want that for you too. I want you to realize, just like Dorothy, that you’ve had it within you the whole time. Now it’s time to figure out a way to bring it out and make it work for you.
At the end of the day, I’m a teacher. I want to teach you to tap into the inner strength and gifts you already have to build the life you truly want and I want you to treat yourself to the compassion and love you give to others every day.
To that end, I have curated and created resources, providing you with the inspiration, community and encouragement you need to be You. Yes, You. An amazing wonderful, beautiful person with an incredible spirit — YOU.
I’ve taken years of research and coursework on creating happiness and wholeness and distilled it down into a way to help you bring joy and balance to your life. Happy Fix® is a resource full of scientifically backed programs, inspiration, information, and support to be consumed and shared, creating a community of people who understand the importance of being positive and improving our lives and the lives of those around us.
Through Happy Fix, I want to help you restore balance to your life and engage in self-care you need and, frankly, have earned. I want you to be able to spend time with family and friends and live the balanced physical, emotional, and spiritual life that you deserve.
Need to set boundaries? Got it. Learn how to take care of your own needs? That too. Overwhelmed by an abundance of work and lack of time? I can help with that. Let me help you figure out what tools you need to help you find balance, to calm your soul when you need it and to engage in healthy relationships.
I will provide a place of support and love where we can talk about how to handle the challenges we all face. Happy Fix is about you: that human being who happens to have challenges just like the rest of us, but who isn’t content to let that stop her forward progress.
