"Having the right people around us on our life's journey can often be the most crucial thing in determining our happiness.

"When we're choosing happiness that means doing what is right for US, not what someone else thinks is best for us or what we've been told we "should" do. It's so important to remember that we do not have to justify our life choices or our actions to anyone else, for any reason."

"When we stay in the same place for a long time, and keep doing the same things over and over - much like we did during 2020 - we can get into a rut. This is dangerous, because as our minds and what we're exposed to gets smaller and smaller, which usually results in our own problems getting bigger and bigger. When we're consciously choosing happiness in our lives, it's important to take steps to stretch ourselves out of our comfort zones to gain some necessary perspective about the world around us, and how we relate to it."

"Living with chronic pain can be horrible. But like with most difficult things in life, if we can reframe our attitude toward it, it can have some unexpected outcomes, not all of which are bad.

"In this episode I share something life-changing I learned when I was faced with something extremely difficult that I had no other choice but to do.

"In this episode we explore the dangers of comparing ourselves to other people's carefully curated "highlight reels" that they put out on social media.

"So often, choosing happiness means giving ourselves the permission we need to be happy. Sounds simple, but when we've been taught otherwise, we have to consciously tune in to our gut and our instincts to allow ourselves to feel joy."

"Seeking other people's approval for how we choose to live our lives takes our power away and puts our validation where it doesn't belong - in the hands and minds of others. This is a roadblock to true happiness and we need to learn to put far less emphasis on other people's opinions and to stop constantly seeking "likes" and "thumbs ups" from elsewhere."
