How can we find happiness when we are told “no”? Maybe a client has turned down our service or perhaps we have been asking God for something specific and haven’t received it. How can we be grateful during times like this and find joy even in the midst of disappointment?

This week I had the JOY of connecting with the happiness coach herself, Lauren Foster, as she explains to us why we should not “wait for happiness” but find it in our everyday lives.

Lauren started off in marketing and sales where she was  “accidentally introduced” to positive psychology. She benefited so much through the mindset shifts that it taught her that she shifted careers and now helps others use the tools of positive psychology to manifest the life of their dreams.

In today’s episode, we talk about how we can practice gratitude, how to find the ‘sweetness” of life through sadness, and how to shift our mindset when doors seem like they are closing all around us. Lauren also walks us through a powerful exercise involving a story about  a “magic orchid” which helps shift your perception of gratitude and the abundance of joy that is actually around us.

This will be the perfect start to your day and will provide much hope and energy no matter what you are facing. We would also LOVE to hear from you! Connect with us in our private Facebook group: Hope to Recharge, because as always, together is better!

Lauren would like to offer our free gift, this has the story of the Magic Orchid and some powerful journaling techniques.
