Are You Dying To Be Happy In The New Year?
Make happiness a priority in the New Year. It's all about making choices and enjoying the journey.

Choose experiences over things. We'll always have Paris, but those Jimmy Choos, no so much. Things don't last and, if they do, they'll be out of style. Paris is always fashionable. Even that dream house is not going to feel as dreamy as time passes. But the hiking trip you took with your best friend and the time you saw the Eiffel Tower as the sun set (yeah, I have a thing about Paris), these are things that stay with you, make you smile years later and can feel transcendent.

Ask yourself how you're doing in each of these areas to jumpstart your happiness journey. Then ask yourself to identify one small thing you can do to pump your happiness up a notch. It's a new year. The clock is ticking. Paris is waiting.

Whether they're twenty, thirty or sixty-something, my clients often bemoan the unfairness of life. In fact, it almost seems as if they are frequently plagued with thoughts such as "I've been so good to him, how could he have lied to me for all that time?" or "My boss has totally got it in for me…no reason whatsoever…I ...
