I am the Trademarked Ambassador of Happiness
My official Ambassador of Happiness trademark processed just recently, but the life path to happiness has taken me over a half century to master.
I’m here to pass along insights, anecdotes and especially those profound questions that will help you find your way to happiness via a much faster route than mine!
Why my motto is “Living Happy from the Inside Out”
Frequently, I’m asked the question, “What does living happy inside out mean?”
Believe it or not, I recognized from a very early age that the world around me was living in reverse. They were taking all their messaging and “cues” from the outer world rather than asking themselves what felt right, authentic and peaceful to them from within.
Most people view happiness as something that happens to them.
They think happiness occurs when they’re surprised by a gift, receive a promotion at work or buy their latest shiny toy. Such events often uplift our spirits, but relying on outside elements to make us happy leaves us without inner happiness, personal agency or even a sense of self-possession.
Here at my Maura4u website, my “Living Happy – Inside Out” mantra is dedicated toward helping you. I want to see you move toward taking personal agency and choosing happiness as a state of being.
I often quote an old Jewish proverb which was also turned into the title of a book.
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
I believe that our thoughts are the seat of our being. They motivate our words, deeds and actions. Our thoughts form our life experience and, chosen repeatedly and consistently from the right place, uplift us from within and brighten the world around us.
Have you been looking for greater happiness in your life?
I offer several resources to help you navigate your own path to living happy from the inside out:
I release blogs about places I’ve traveled, people I’ve met or ideas that speak to the mind, heart and soul.
If you are a viewing type, I’ve developed over 200 videos that provide reflective questions against a variety of backdrops.
If you’re more auditory by nature, I’ve offer a series of podcasts that will help you explore your own thoughts, interests and values.
If you enjoy reading stories, I’ve written a series of six ebooks that will help you explore your own life perspectives as you follow me along on mine.
If you’re a serious student, I’ve prepared a master class entitled Foundations of Happiness that will help you explore some of the deepest parts of your belief system and help you restore yourself to greater peace, prosperity and wholeness.
I also have several sponsors who have partnered with me and who are kindly sharing commissions with me from products ordered via this website. Please check out Gaiam, Pimsleur and Swarovski and others here and may these companies’ products and services add to and support your life.
Your life is of great value; inestimable in ways you cannot imagine.
You are designed to be a gift to yourself and a gift to the greater world.
May your visits here help you to recognize your worth, your talents and the goodness you can bring to your life and to the lives of those around you.
