The child in all of is always asking this question in one form or another every single day.

We Are The Narrators Of Our Life Story

Today on The Daily Inspiration Podcast we have an exciting interview with Laura Shannon, author of Be Happy Now: Simple Steps to Enjoying Life, a book about embracing every moment of our life and being happy.

She’s here to share her story, how she found inspiration for writing her book and the successful community she’s built with her blog.

Shortly after finding out she needed a life threatening neurological operation her eleven year old daughter passed away suddenly in a tragic car accident. Ever since this point in time Laura has spent her life looking at things from a fresh viewpoint and invested herself in writing a book as well as sharing her spirit of positivity with others.

Most of us would probably agree that a happy life is a good life, regardless of the other factors. So if being happy is one of the most important keys to enjoying life, then why is it that we aren’t taught how to be happy? Perhaps we never knew that happiness can be taught. Perhaps we don’t know that it is possible to control our emotions or our state of mind. If people took as much time working on happiness, as we do other goals in life we would all be happy today.

When you are in a state of gratitude you are focusing on the positive, instead of dwelling on what you wish were different.  There are so many things in life that we take for granted.  When you take time to focus on these, you are generating feelings of happiness.  Be grateful for the life that you have right now.  Don’t get caught up in waiting for a “better” life tomorrow.

Laura shares tips for grounding yourself and some teasers as to the exercises within her new book.
