Are You Happy?

Are you happy? Do you look on the bright side of things? Are you approachable?

If you want to attract a healthy positive type of love, then you need to project happiness.

But, how do you do this if you’re lonely, sad or jaded? It’s as easy as making up your mind to choose being positive in your every word and action. You must find happiness and fulfillment in your own life in order to attract the “one”. That means having hobbies, a job, and friends that fulfill you in a healthy way. It’s so easy to sink into bitterness and complacency and before you know it, you’re in over your head and you’re stuck. It takes a bit of effort to choose happiness everyday, but it’s worth the effort. And while you’re at it, expand your mind in new ways. Read a new book or magazine that is completely out of your regular routine. In fact, while you’re at it, start a new routine all together! March to a different drum, listen to new music and make new friends. The potential for expanding your life and happiness is limitless. Soak in all of the life you can, we only get one shot at it, so go for it!!!

On a more personal note, from my own observations these days, I have discovered that when I go to events or parties I have more fun than ever and so does anyone who comes with me. Why? Because I move around the room, smiling and talking to everyone I see. I’m interested in meeting new people, I love to hear their stories and it’s just fun talking to people. Before I was a matchmaker, I was like you: I would go to a party and just stand in one place with my friend and people watch. Then we’d leave and we never really ever met anyone new. Yes, we observed a lot of people…but, so what? We weren’t going outside of out comfort zones. Let’s face it, we go to parties and events to meet new people…so hell…get out there, walk up to someone and just start talking! What do you have to lose? Worst-case scenario: there’s not much to talk about, it might be awkward for a minute and you move on. Big deal, life is all about awkward moments, it’s what makes life most interesting, the unexpected. And the endless possibilities that each day brings, is what makes me happy! That and my animals ☺

I like the way you think! I completely agree and that is why I just ended a relationship of 11 yrs. I can't let someone else bring me down everyday. I need to be the positive, happy, funny person that I was put on this earth to be.

Thanks Gina! It's great to expand beyond our comfort zone and meet new people. I have the most fun when I do this. Thanks for a great article. :)

Gina, I am going to call you and I will be your next challenge as I am the friendliest person, love talking to strangers, and used to be a maitre'd in an exclusive club. I have a fascinating life to many, love to travel, a nice family, used to model and still look 15 years younger than I am, put myself out there all the time and still have not met my soul-mate. I am spiritual, sober, have no horrible tales to tell of bad marriages, etc. I have loved and been loved. I don't know that is has anything to do with being "open" to new experiences if you'll forgive me.
