Too often, we put our happiness on hold until we reach a certain milestone. But what if we could experience joy in the present moment, rather than waiting for it to arrive in the future?

We often get caught up in the idea of “I’ll be happier when…” instead of focusing on finding joy in the now. We burden ourselves with sky-high expectations, neglecting the golden balance of maintaining our standards but with a realistic understanding of life. 

But what if the secret to happiness, peace, and joy isn’t found in our things, but within our hearts? What if a simple change in the way we talk to ourselves can spark an inner revolution? Join us as we journey through the realm of self-love and discovery, exploring how you can enjoy life’s journey, not just its destination, and uncover everyday moments to feel good about. We delve into the essence of joy and the beauty of life in our upcoming dialogue, waiting to uplift and inspire. Don’t delay your chance to be happier now!

Discover how to break free from unrealistic expectations and start finding happiness now by celebrating the entire process, practicing gratitude, and challenging yourself in all aspects of life – from relationships to careers, and more. Tune into the latest episode on the Really Personal Podcast. 


Don’t Be Happier WHEN, Be Happier NOW | Really Personal Podcast

What NOT to do or say to be happy NOW.

#1: Dwelling on negative thoughts and emotions.

#2: Worrying about the future.

#3: Can’t forgiving yourself

#4: Letting the “what ifs” control and rule your mind.

#5: Holding on grudges.

#6: Waiting for the perfect time.


Embrace challenges, relationships, and goals while practicing gratitude and finding joy in every step of your journey. Practice gratitude each day, and strive for whatever it is you’re after. Don’t just celebrate when you get to the finish line. Celebrate along the way.
