How to be Happier? 3 Strategies to Cope with Adversities
As I was driving back from basically launching my oldest child, I was listening to a playlist that my kids, their dad and I have collectively created during the spring lockdown. And suddenly, a Bob Dylan song comes on, “Don’t think twice, it’s alright!” As the fingerstyle guitar that Bob Dylan masters so beautifully begin to resonnate in my car, I was overcome with an strong emotion that came from my solar plexus area and came up to my throat, causing me to sob almost uncontrollably. “How to be happier?” seems a great question here.
How to be happier?
This song reminds me of my dad who used to sing it and do a dancy move that was so typical of his sunny personnality. Because he often sang pieces of it to my kids, interacting with them lovingly in the process. Unfortulately, my dad passed away on September 29th, 2019 and I miss him dearly. I wonder how much longer these pushy emotions are going to show up for me.
Weathering the storm
But I let myself sob and sob, I know that it is the only way through. It’s not easy to be with that but I have learned to weather these storms. Yes, I have spent over two decades searching for and finally finding my own happiness. In the process, I learned a lot about the path to happiness and I have even become a therapist. For the last 12 years, I have been helping people perhaps just like you to finally Experience their TRUE Happiness.

It’s around the year 2000, I’m sitting on the floor of my office and I am sobbing uncontrollably. Just sobbing and sobbing. I had a therapy session earlier and I am just now realizing how I had been going about my life wrong, it took me several years of therapy to get to that point. I was not making my decisions from the right place. This is a devastating realization.
But it ended up being a real starting point. From there, I was able to little by little connect with my true self and start to make good choices for myself. That is what I want for you!
