Being happy is easy when life is going well; but what about when circumstances spin out of control and bad things happen one right after another. We all have times when we feel that we just can’t get out from under the storm clouds. How do people stay happy during the tough times? It’s a learned behavior that takes practice and passion for what doing what you love! You really should really read my blog on the terrific benefits of simply being happy!  

It’s been said time and time again that when the going gets tough, the tough get going, but some people don’t find that at all easy to do. Positive attitudes can help, but knowing that there is a higher power that controls the chess pieces of our lives lets us know that this hard time is only a bump in the road and will soon pass.

Have faith that it will be better. In the meantime, continue living your life.  Don’t stop working on your passion and goals just because you are being tested. Time is still moving and your best life is ahead of you! Stay focused. Take Control of your Life!  Check out

Do what you love simultaneously with your “adventure”. Notice I did not say ordeal!   Knowing it won’t last is key! This deep acceptance of faith is called joy; and hard times simply can’t compete with pure joy. We may not understand why bad things happen to good people, but we know that they do and always will. Bad things happen to bad people too, just as good things happen to good people. It’s just the way it is. It’s the manner in which we deal with the life’s obstacles that define who we are- how we present to the world.  Try to look at everything as part of God’s plan and as a positive experience; find joy in the simple pleasures in life and don’t let the circumstances of the day (or week) get you down!

Living Your Passion


We all begin thinking about what we’re going to be when we grow up at a very early age. As we grow and learn more about ourselves and life, those career ideas change and grow. As we experience new relationships, hobbies and events in our lives, we develop interests and ultimately, we become passionate about some of them.  It’s these passions that make the stressors of life dissipate.

What may have been a passion in our twenties may very well change in our forties or fifties or beyond. We may find that the career we chose in college no longer satisfies our needs, once our basic needs have been met. While once our passion was making enough money to travel and keep up with bills,  our passion in our fifties may become a desire to help others. As we’ve developed personal skills, we may find that we are gifted in public speaking; what could be better than talking about your passion and making money at the same time? NOTHING!


Unfortunately, many people fail to live a life filled with passion. Fearful of rejection or of success keeps many people from pursuing their dreams; many people simply don’t have enough faith in themselves to reach for the stars. Here’s some inspiration! 

What makes you happy? Do you have a hobby that you just can’t get enough of? Take the step of writing down any way that you could make money at doing your favorite thing and try it in your spare time. You might find a new career doing exactly what you are passionate about!

Stay tuned for more on becoming a lifestyle entrepreneur!
