OUR SHOWS With: Jean Marie Hamel, Ph.D.
“The Art of Happiness”
Are you happy? Are you really happy?
R esearch studies reveal that fifteen million Americans are clinically depressed. To ease our pain, we disengage further from ourselves by turning to a multitude of quick fixes. Many of us have been taught that going from the ‘outside-in’ is the formula for happiness…. such as getting the right job, the right home, and/or the right relationship. Unfortunately, anytime we define ourselves by what we have, what we possess, or what’s on the outside, we’re going to be in for a lot of disappointment, pain and let down because we soon find ourselves governed by these symbols and images rather than living authentically from our innermost desires and essence.
To live a soul-driven, authentic life you must challenge your punitive, limiting thoughts, conditioned behaviors, and disempowering emotional patterns that hold you back from being all that you can be. Believe it or not, happiness, just like pain, is a choice. It is often tempting to assume that circumstances dictate attitudes however, history repeatedly reveals that attitudes are chosen and that people who choose an expansive point of view will triumph in even the most oppressive situations.
This show is about how to engage your soul’s participation in creating a more rewarding life. In order to find a true sense of connection and happiness, you need to look beyond the limitations you’ve created and celebrate who you truly are inside.
Attitude is a choice.
