Happiness is a choice! Just do it!


Make Your Life Magical…One Step at a Time!

It’s easy to be happy when life goes your way, when you feel special and loved. But, what about when things are tough? When hurt or sadness takes over and you feel like you have no control over what is happening to you? Is happiness a choice then? The answer is yes!


Give it a try! You’re worth it!

Here are 8 tips that actually work!aa

1. Read fairy tales!
Fairy tales, like Magelica’s Voyage are a fun, fearless, and fantastical way to discover and share the magic of life. As Albert Einstein said, “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales”. Reading fairy tales encourages creative, independent thinkers. They also help us explore and discover new possibilities and new ways to look at life. You are never too young or too old to read fairy tales!

2. Focus mindfully on the positives!
Take the time to consciously think positive thoughts. The law of attraction says that positivity attracts positivity. Gratitude works much the same way. The more thankful you are, the more to be thankful for. And the happier you’ll be!

3. There is always, always something to be thankful for!
Consider the normal things that you take for granted. Think of silly things, daily things, funny sqaurethings, basic things, serious things, and everything that makes your life better, more convenient and more fulfilling. Think of all the things you’d miss, if you couldn’t have them or do them. Are you grateful for the sun shining, the garden getting the rain it needed, a delicious cup of coffee, the birds chirping, electricity, running water, or a million other things? Your list is surely endless! When you notice something, just say thank you!

4. Write it down!
From the moment you wake up, as you move through your day, look at life from your new perspective. And when the day is over, take a few moments to make a list of everything you were thankful for that day! Writing it down helps you be mindful!

5. Teach your children, that being thankful is fun!
Gratitude doesn’t always come as easy as complaining. If you make it a chore, or too serious, you’ll want to stop. When being thankful makes you smile or laugh, it’s much easier and way more fun to do! So, make it fun! Laugh every chance you get! Play games. For a new twist try I’m Thankful For. It’s like I Spy With My Little Eye …and each person adds something. It’s a great game while in the car or just hanging around.

6. Gratitude is contagious! Make it cool! Be a role model!
Be demonstrative about what makes you happy. Your own behavior and gestures show your kids that it’s fun and important to be grateful for big things and small ones. Get your kids, your family, and your friends to join you and share their thankful thoughts. Create a ripple of

7. Discover the good in any situation! paintThis one is often the hardest to adopt, so start slow. Over time, you will see how seemingly bad things are really good. Pay attention to what is happening around you. Look for the reasons, and the lessons. There’s always a positive lesson and a reason! There are no coincidences! And the glass is most definitely half full!

8. Make it a habit!
Make being thankful part of your daily routine, just like washing your face or brushing your teeth. By repetition over time, you create so many positive thoughts that it will no longer be something you do, but part of who you are. Take it one step at a time and see how good you feel!

Just do it!  Choose happiness!

When you start focusing on the things you are thankful for, more than anything else, you start to make your life magical!

Do You Believe in Magic?

Make Your Life Magical…One Step at a Time!

Join me in my first blog post and give it a try!

My name is Louise. I am a mother of four, a wife, a fundraiser for children’s causes and author of a new kind of fairy tale to inspire girls to believe in themselves and in the magic of life.

Close your eyes and smile

More than 20 years ago, I created the tale of Magelica’s Voyage. It was finally published last year and my passion became a reality! The second fairy tale of the trilogy, the upcoming Magelica’s Voyage – The Rescue will launch later this year and I’m now writing the third book.

I try my best to lead the most positive life I can by putting a positive spin on just about everything. Sometimes it’s not easy, but I’ve made it a habit of mine and I’m not too bad at it!

In this blog, I’ll share some tips that I use everyday, to live and stay in the zone of positivity, love, and gratitude. These tools give me the power to make my life magical. The way I figure, if I can do it, you can too!

By changing the way you look at things, the things you look at will change. And you’ll discover, one step at a time, how to create your own magic. So how do you get yourself into a different zone? How do you change the way you look at things?

If you’re on the Internet, you’ve most likely read, liked or shared a message like the one below. It makes sense, right? But how do you actually talk about your joys? It’s human to talk about problems!

You get new habits!

It's all about joy

Talk about your joys

You do it by changing your focus and by changing the “zone” you live in. You break the habit and create a different set of life rules to guide you.

Create your own magic!

By repetition over time, you create new, positive thoughts and behaviors, until the new habit is something that you automatically do. It becomes part of who you are.

Together, let’s get there one step at a time.

As time goes on, the tips will get more challenging. But it will be fun. And don’t forget to share the magic with the special people in your life. It’s way more fun when they think like you!

Let’s begin!

Close your eyes and smile for 10 seconds.

Happy Thoughts

Sound simple? Maybe. But it works so well, the results will amaze you. Do it first thing in the morning when you wake up. And don’t say you don’t have time. We can all find 10 seconds in the morning to close our eyes and just smile.

If there are kids or others in your bed, invite them to join you. I know, the kids need to get to school, or your partner needs your advice on a business deal, or your friends are planning a birthday, or you need to get to work, or a million other things. But just take 10 seconds for you. Close your eyes. And smile!

Don’t think! Just let your own special memories surface by themselves. Hold on to your own image(s) and your own happy thoughts for 10 seconds and lock them in.

Do this every single morning and see how you feel by the end of the week. You just began a new habit!
