Life is still different for many or most of us. It seems most of us are happy challenged. It’s not that happiness isn’t happening, or that we don’t get that we are blessed so we also have moments we feel gratitude. However, we’re also frustrated, maybe angry, or even a little situationally depressed. This combo of emotions leaves many of us feeling confused.
Next week I’ll be posting something on this topic. If you’re feeling these things I’d love to hear from you. If you’re feeling something else, I’d love to hear from you too. 
???? ???? ????
We’re still celebrating Happiness Happens Month — because happiness always happens–even when we have to look a little harder to notice it. We have a goal to start one smile a day this month — and that includes one for ourselves. You can still get and start the #SmileStarter Challenge Calender.
However, today we have a special #SmileStarter for you.
Amy Giddons, Co-Founder of Daily Haloha – an app that asks a #SmileStarter question every morning — and I have a special question for you today. So, please go to your smart phone, and download Daily Haloha so you can answer today’s question and see the responses to it of people around the world.
I can’t wait to read your responses. 
????  ????  ????
As always, I want to thank everyone who supports us by buying us a cup of coffee, shops at our store and helped sponsor Happiness Happens Month. I love you and we wouldn’t be here without you.

I know our happiness feels a little different right now–it may not feel as exuberant or last as long because the uncertainty is real. I also know, happiness is still around us and if we look hard enough we’ll notice it.
Please keep looking for the happy, keep smiling, and keep being compassionate with yourself and others because we’re all walking in new territory.
Your mission should you choose to accept it this week is to: 
Look at the Stars 
 Have a star gazing evening.
Lay in the grass and look at the stars.
Have a star gazing (socially distanced)
party with a few of your family members, neighbors or friends
–you can even do this on zoom.
Just sit in a chair and look up to get some personal reflective time.
Enjoy the stars and let yourself dream. 
⭐  ????  ⭐
You can still participate in the #SmileStarter Challenge. 
If you want to do all 31 you can keep doing them into September
–we’ll need smiles then too????

I always smile when we connect with others to celebrate Happiness Happens Month — or happiness anytime. 
Daily Haloha asks a simple daily routine to help us look inward and share outward. It starts with a single thought-provoking question to the world each day. Positive and refreshing!
So please, download the app today and answer today’s questions. If it starts a smile for you, think about doing it every day. I’ve started doing it and it’s a great way to start the day and connect with others. ????   

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.
