"The god you worship is the one you're capable of becoming" Joseph Campbell

A HERO'S LIFE

You don't have to perform some epic deed, act of bravery, suffer a soul testing experience or be better looking, smarter, wealthier, stronger, being any less of a mess, or knowing something more than you think you know.

"When we stop judging our suffering or our faults our minds become quieter, we create a space for happiness," Allison Massari

“You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.” ― Sonja Lyubomirsky, The How of Happiness: A Scientific Approach to Getting the Life You Want

YOU CAN BE HAPPIER

My life was forever changed by learning that you have the power be happier by actually putting effort into it. There are studies that show 50% of how you feel about happiness is genetic (not a good sign for some of us...) - but research by Sonja Lyubomirsky starts with three things as the basis for happiness - one’s set point, one’s life circumstances, and the intentional activities in which one engages. She contends that only 10% is based on circumstance - therefore you've got that 40% to work with. So let's do it.

"I believe that the more time we spend choosing to run the deep inner peace circuitry of our right hemispheres, the more peace we will project into the world and the more peaceful our planet will be." Jill Bolte Taylor

YOUR BRAIN IS BUILT TO BE HAPPY

Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained neuroanatomist who suffered a stroke that virtually destroyed the left hemisphere of her brain. Her right brain remained aware of what was happening and she had incredible insights. “I learned that everything about us, among us, within us and between us is energy,” she says. “We have the power to choose moment by moment, who and how we want to be in the world, and we have the power to take responsibility for the energy we bring to any circumstance. To the consciousness of our right brains, we are one human family.”
