Reclaiming the “Queen of Happiness” Title

Earlier this year (late April to be exact), I took a life changing course because my SoCal Mom Sandy told me too and she was hell bent on me being there. I saw the impact it could have on my life and dragged my BFF (Best Friend Forever) Trina in there with me. If I was going to sit in a course for 4 long days without access to my beloved tech toys or any caffeine to distract me; I wanted a partner in crime in there with me to help it go by faster. Also I was still skeptical about its impact and I figured this would lessen the blow.

I can’t tell you how I survived without constant access to a computer or my iPhone (a true miracle) but we emerged anew. We had brand new goals, a new outlook on life, and wanted to spread the gospel to our family and friends so we began a journey to impact others around us and get them involved in this work. The immediate impact began with her family and last night I sat in a circle surrounded by her family that I’ve now adopted as my own. Her Mother stood up to talk and thanked me for spreading joy into their family and for being Trina’s true best friend. I must admit this moment caught me a little off guard. I didn’t quite know how to take it. How could I be the source of anyone’s joy? I’m just one person and as far as being the “Queen of Happiness” that’s just something my name means I’m not even sure I exhibit the radiance that the title demands of me. I was so caught up in my thoughts I failed to realize the impact I had made by bringing Trina into the course, her sister, her mother, and her sister’s son Nick. Wow. All these lives now changed for the better. Four people that now have an amazing outlook on life, a brand new path in front of them, and a stronger bond with each other.   How do you handle that?

Each time I get closer to the work whether it be a guest event or a closing night, I feel my spirit reignite. I feel the fire that once burned strong and that tells me I need to stay connected because somewhere down the line it simmers and then I snuff the embers with my self doubt. If I truly am the Queen of Happiness, I need to live up to my title, quit day dreaming, and put some plans into action.

I once said that I would be something in this world. I keep saying that and I’ve been saying it since childhood, however Dr. Seuss said it best:

You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own.  And you know what you know.  You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Yes, the quotes are silly and they rhyme but there’s logical and deeper meaning hidden inside. I have all the tools it takes to be what I want to be. The question is: will I live up to what I set forth and can I reclaim my title and own it?
