Everyone has a getting happy story. A time when things were going well, maybe even spectacularly well, and then took a turn for the worse. You worked through the hard time and found your way back to getting happy.
That link takes you to an online form where you can share your story. But what kind of story do you share, right? It's a good question.
The answer is simple. Share any story about hitting a hard time and working your way through it. It can be about losing a job, a boyfriend or girlfriend, or maybe failing a test. Or maybe it's about getting pregnant unexpectedly, landing a new job that requires relocating, or retiring without a plan for what to do next. Any event in our lives, good or bad, can be the reason for us needing to work our way back to getting happy.
People sometimes worry about publicity, too. It's one thing to tell your story in the backyard over a beer. Telling it to a guy who might put your story in a book is something completely different, right? That's maybe a better question.
Nobody wants their laundry aired in public. I get that. You share your story with me and I promise we can change as many names as you want me to change.
Thank you in advance for sharing your story. I appreciate it, and - even more importantly - your story helps others who are making their own way back to getting happy.
