Turn Your Happiness On

Lately I’ve been on a self help kick. Some of the books I’ve read have similar themes and suggestions, but out of all of them, this one is one of the more in depth ones. Norma covers a lot of different topics within the subject of happiness. Some examples range from figuring out what makes us happy, to taking into account what type of people we allow into our lives and how to be grateful for what we do have. At the end of each chapter are action steps we can take to implement to help make our lives more happy.

Some suggestions that Norma has are inspiring. One of the ones that spoke to me a lot is to declutter. I own quite a bit of different items over the years that I don’t necessarily use, or forgot about. If I have less belongings to stress over then I’ll feel much freer. Another suggestion which I’ve heard multiple times is to keep a gratitude journal. It helps you focus on what you are thankful for and have instead of focusing on the lack. Lastly the suggestion to write down what would make us happy in each area of our lives, so that we can take baby steps to get there.

I received a complimentary digital copy of Turn Your Happiness On by Norma Nikutowski. The views expressed are of my own volition and mine. If you need a hearty dose of encouragement for ways to stay happy then I recommend this book. It has helpful action plans to try out. Thank you Norma for a book that was educational and inspiring.

When Life Throws You Hints

Sometimes Instagram ads inspire you out of the blue. I was scrolling and the ads on there can be annoying. One stood out though. The topic was on becoming a life coach through the program at SWIHA. I logged that information in the back of my brain for safe keeping.

A few months go by and I finally decide to check out their website and contact them for more information. I discover there’s an option of becoming a spiritual coach. Ever since I was little I wanted to be a pastor. Seeing I could go through and get ordained was like finding the gold at the end of the rainbow.

The only roadblock is the cost of the program. It’s a private college, so it’s not cheap, but I believe much less than a whole year at an in state university. Now I just have to save up.

I may not attend a church, or as I like to call it the box, but I still believe by a thread. It’s so ingrained in me I can’t merely throw it out. I’d love to help others on their spiritual journey. My faith has expanded so much in the past 10 years in strange, outside the box directions.

Are you a life coach or spiritual coach? If so comment below. I’d love to connect. What inspires you if you are looking to walk down this same path?
