“Happy” is a very subjective term but it represents a standard state of being for many women. According to modern theory, there are 27 human emotions. Unfortunately, many people live their lives aiming to stay in a “happy” place. When they experience one of the other 26 emotions, they may have a tough time leaning into their present feelings because they are hyper-focused on getting back to “happy”. Some of the happiest people I know do not force bad feelings away. They practice mindfulness, acceptance, and they give themselves grace when recalibrating their emotions. I’ve come to learn that true happiness lies in radical acceptance, flexibility, and avoiding rumination. Take the course for a big lesson on “finding your happy”.
