If you’re in the path of Hurricane Laura please be safe. It looks like her reach will be wide and impact many places. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Please let me know how you fare. 
If you are a teacher or homeschooling parent, I know it’s a little extra chaotic for you now. Sending you lots of vibe raising energy too. And if you need to cry sometimes –that’s okay too. Releasing the stress helps us find our happy sooner. 
I’m still working on my post about the combo of emotions we’re all feeling during this uncharted time. Also, thanks for sharing with me how you’re doing — and I always enjoy hearing from each of you. 
The one thing I know about 2020 — is that we’ll remember it for years to come. Maybe for different reasons, but we’ll all remember it. And I’m hoping you remember a few of the smiles it brought too.

We have four #SmileStarter Challenges left during our 21st Happiness Happens Month. However, you can do any of these challenges any day you need a little pick- me-up. Download and save the challenge calendar for when you’re feeling a smile shortage.

I usually take a little time off after Happiness Happens Month so if you don’t hear from me for the next couple of weeks don’t be alarmed. I’ll be back.
We’re actually going to be kicking off the Raise Your Vibe Challenge in September –to help you feel a little better during all of this pandemic crazy.
I love you and appreciate that you share your happy light–it makes the world a happier place. Keep noticing your happy moments. They help balance the rest of our feelings.
Your mission should you choose to accept it this week is to: 
Eat Your Favorite Food 
 Maybe it’s something you cook,
or you have a favorite restaurant (dine-in or take-out),
simply enjoy your favorite dish
to make your mouth and tummy smile this week.  
????  ????  ????
Although Happiness Happens Month is winding down
consider downloading the #SmileStarter Challenge
Then you can do the challenges anytime you need a little pick me up. ????

Sometimes a saying or quote just resonates with you.
I’d seen this one before but when I was in Hot Springs, Arkansas, I saw this one on a canvas in a gift shop. I asked to buy it but it wasn’t for sale.
So, I made my own and had it printed.
My friends know me as a night owl, but I thought this explained it in a lovely way — and seems true for so many of my friends too.
I got to hang it up this week and it’s been a #SmileStarter every day.
Sometimes it’s important to treat yourself and make your home cozy. 

We have a new SOHP Subscriber Resource page with lots of the goodies for you to download — including the Happiness Counter. 

I’ve been on a little break from this group but plan to start doing the Restore, Pray & Love FB Live’s at 8 pm CDT / 9 pm EDT / 6 pm PDT for about 10 minutes soon.
When I started these meet-ups I thought we were at the height of our stress and anxiety. However, studies are showing that COVID fatigue and stress have increased, so we need it now too.
This is a chance to connect and raise your vibe during these stressful times. And you can watch the video anytime it’s convenient. 
If you’re not on FB, no worries, just sign up here and we’ll send you the daily videos.
