For many, 2017 was filled with unpleasantries, anger, sadness, major changes, loss…OK, you get the point!  2017 is over!! Should we continue to complain about all the crap shoveled to us or should we close the book on all that – as difficult as that is! And I know that it can be very difficult not to mull over things that didn’t go right in your life!!

FINE!  Things didn’t go right?? Put your hands on your hips and choose left instead!  If you don’t feel like doing that today, that’s fine too!! You don’t have to be perfect!  In fact, be perfectly imperfect!! But don’t wait until the end of the year, however, or you’ll be right back where you started last year!

Let 2018 be about being real with ourselves for once; whatever that may mean for YOU! Let’s stop trying to be perfect and just do the best we can with what we’re facing that day!  What would that look like? A whole lot of happy that’s what! The pressure is taken off to perform like a circus monkey all the time!

You know what I’m going to say next, right??  Resolutions for the new year!  HA! No! I wasn’t going to say that!  Resolutions are ideas people throw to the wind as they are downing they’re third glass of whatever makes them happy.  What we need are GOALS!!

I am the biggest believer of DREAMING BIG, but I know one thing for sure… Big Dreams can only come true when YOU make them happen! Let me repeat that:

YOU HAVE TO MAKE THEM HAPPEN!!

I have put together a simple 2-part workshop for doing just that!

Happy Planning to Make Happy Dreams Happen  ($20) 

Week 1: Jan 15, 2018

  • Choosing one big dream from the thousands of dreams we want to accomplish at the same time
  • Creating a Vision Board to support your one big dream

Week 2: Jan 22, 2018

  • Breaking it down and organizing it in bite size pieces
  • The plan

You’ll get:

  • an e-book in PDF format that you can download and be able to refer to whenever you would like to revisit this class.
  • 4 private YouTube videos

If you would like to sign up for this workshop, please email me for more information:

happyandlaughingtoday@gmail.com

Every month will have a different workshop dedicated to that month.  A 2 week workshop is simple. Life is complicated enough with so much technology thrown at us from every angle.  Sometimes we just need to take a step back and take a couple of weeks for ourselves and reevaluate what is important for us.

Life should be simple, happy and laughing…

 

 

 

 

About the Author Irene Savakis

I am a fun-loving mama of 4 amazing kidlets and I am on a mission to find something that makes me happy or brings me joy every day and to share that with you! Incidentally, the title of the blog came from my oldest daughter when she was almost 3. It had been many sleepless nights and 3 out of 4 in diapers was taking its toll. She cradled my face in her little hands and asked: “Mamma, are you happy and laughing?”. Needless to say, that expression has stuck and we still use it today, over 10 years later. On a personal note, I love to write, paint and scrapbook…I love being creative. It is the one place where I can journey into myself and find peace in my world. I come back rejuvenated. Incidentally, Irene is of Greek origin meaning peace…funny, I am most happy when I have peace in my heart and all around me. Thanks for stopping by…
