On the days when my business begins to feel a bit overwhelming, I carve out some quiet time to remember all the reasons I started this solo endeavor — the things that make the long days, sacrifice, and hard work all worthwhile. I am re-energized by the realization that I am living my dream, by making a positive difference in the lives of those I serve, and that is my greatest happiness.

The movie, Pursuit of Happyness, resonates the importance taking personal responsibility for your happiness. If you don’t like where your work is taking or not taking you, commit to changing your circumstances. It’s not your friend’s job to make you smile; it’s not your spouse’s mission to bring you joy; it’s not your boss’s job to make you love your job. You are in control of how much or how little happiness you experience in this lifetime through the decisions you make, and the way you react to the world around you when life happens.
