Thank you for your kind notes about my couple of weeks off for a recharge. Lots of changes are in the air and I’ll share more soon.

For the first time in 20 years, I gave serious consideration to canceling Happiness Happens Month.

It’s not that happiness isn’t happening–it is. However, there’s also a lot of sad, uncertain, and even life-changing news for many as a result of this global pandemic. People are stressed and unhappiness is at an all-time high.

However, happiness is still happening. And in times like these, we need to make an extra effort to notice our happy moments even if they look a little different than our normal happiness.

So, we have to celebrate Happiness Happens Month.

We’ll be doing Operation #SmileStarter–a pandemic, social distancing, mask-wearing #SmileStarter Challenge–to help you and others smile a bit more.

SOHP Insiders will be getting the calendar soon, so you don’t need to sign up for anything else. I’m making the final smile tweaks and hope to send it next week.

As a heads up start thinking about your perfect #SmileStarter Mask. What would be on it?

Your mission should you choose to accept it this week is to: 
Don’t Judge  
 It’s easier said than done,
but this week, when you’re tempted to judge
a family member, friend, or even stranger, take a pause and don’t. 
People are feeling stressed, frustrated, and antsy.
People are doing things out of character.
Practice compassion and treat others like you’d want to be treated.
We don’t have to understand other people’s actions.
We can know we wouldn’t do an action.
But we can also, choose not to think poorly of others
for their actions. 
Instead, remain neutral.
Happiness Happens Month and Day make me smile — even during a year full of Happiness Zappers.
Let’s make the world smiler in 2020. 

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

While I know some of you are doing well–thanks for sharing your stories with me–I also know many people are feeling some challenging feelings.

Therefore, I decided to postpone the launch of the Raise Your Vibe Challenge–it will be coming soon, but right now, for the next few days or weeks I feel we needed something a little more soulfully focused.

I’m hosting an 8 pm CDT (most evenings) Restore, Pray & Love FB Live.

If you’re not on FB, no worries, just sign up here and we’ll send you the daily videos.

Does Happiness Happens Month make you smile?

If so, considering supporting the month by being a sponsor.

You’ll be listed on our Smile Supporter Wall.

Individuals can be a sponsor starting with a $5 Love Exchange.

Organizations can also participate and get a link back to their website.

Your sponsorship helps us promote Happiness Happens Month  so more people will smile during a very challenging time.

Also, thank you, thank you to those who’ve signed up to be a sponsor. ????

If you love what we’re doing and it makes you smile, please consider supporting SOHP Weekly – for the cost of a cup of coffee. While we deliver our digital pub for free to your inbox each week, we hope you’ll consider making a one-time gift of $3, or a monthly offering of that same amount. Your support helps us make the world a happier place.
