1. Out of ten how happy are you right now? 8
2. What ‘little things’ in your life make you happy and why?
My cat – he’s always so available and affectionate and I love his little head-butts; the sky – I love watching it change; my bicycle – gets me away from the computer and out into Nature on a regular basis, and I love the feeling of the air rushing by my ears – freedom!
3. Which particular people in your life make you happy and why?
My husband – he’s so patient and kind, and he loves me anyway, no matter how ‘Yorkshire’ and annoying I’m being; my kids – they never cease to amaze me – where did they come from?!; my closest friends – they’re funny, quirky, they inspire me and frequently remind me to believe in myself; my business peers for their companionship – we’re on the same path, growing ourselves in tandem with growing our businesses, and they never fail to inspire me; my clients for their courage and willingness to dig deep and face the ‘stuff’ (technical term) that’s been holding them back.
4. What do you feel would give you more happiness in your life right now?
The ability to stop and smell the coffee more often.
5. What makes you happy in your current relationships and why?
Being able to relax and feel safe to show up as Who I Really Am – after spending most of my life being Who They Want Me To Be (or more accurately, Who I Think They Want Me To Be)
6. What makes you happy about being a woman and why?
I love how women are really there for each other, cheering each other on and offering mutual support
7. What makes you happy about men and why?
That’s a surprisingly difficult question 🙂 I love the men in my life to bits – and they’re all in touch with their sensitive feminine side. So I guess I love men who have that beautiful balance of masculine and feminine, which makes them available for deep relationships.
8. What would make you more happy in the future and why?
If I could learn how to leverage my time – so I could have more ‘me’ time and spend more time with family and friends.
9. Out of ten how happy are you after answering these questions?
10 – I have so much to feel happy about!
For me, true happiness is an ‘inside-out’ thing – I haven’t always felt this way and I think in our culture we’ve been conditioned to look at it the other way around, i.e. things happen ‘out there’ and I’m happy or unhappy as a result. Now we have new information from the Law of Attraction teachings, everything starts in energy first, and happiness becomes a choice I can make moment-to-moment. I don’t manage to sustain this perspective all the time but I’m working on it and feel blessed to have been given the new information.
