Maura Sweeney: Living Happy Inside Out | Encouragement | Inspiration | Empowerment | Leadership

Are you waiting for someone else to create happiness, or are you ready to create some yourself?

In this latest podcast, I take up the topic of Happy Hours! Discover the elements that make a happy hour truly happy and start thinking outside-the-box.

Though I talk about my earliest recollections of family “happy hours” during the 1960’s era of cocktails and martinis, I expand the notion about where – and how – happy hours happen. Join me through a few of my own experiences in life as I created different versions of happy hours. Then be inspired and challenged to make a happy hour happen that’s all your own.

In my first ever challenge of this type, I invite listeners to write and send me photos or videos of their own versions of “Making Happy Hour Happen.”

Then listen in as Brigitte Plugge from The Hague, Netherlands shares with us what makes him/her happy from the inside out, too!

When paving the path to happiness from the inside out, we can supercharge our travels by checking in with our emotions. They can speak to us plainly in ways that intellect alone cannot.

This latest podcast got its genesis from two recent encounters, both of which left me with positive, expansive feelings. Those same encounters inspired me to reflect upon two previous experiences from decades ago that provided me with earlier cues to forming healthy relationships. The first was negatively motivated, leaving me questioning myself, my worth and the type of friendships I’d want to keep at bay. In contrast, the other always left me feeling supported, valued and loved.  

If you’ve been struggling with familiar, toxic or other unhealthy relationships that drain your energy and joy, you’ll want to pay attention to this podcast.

Giving a nod to Maya Angelou’s adage reminding us how people don’t remember what we say or do, but they remember how we made them feel, you’ll emerge feeling fresher, and more inspired by this podcast.

Discover new ways to assess your healthy relationships. Then empower yourself to refine -- and redefine -- the parameters of some less sound ones, too.

Finally, tune in to Veronika Ligeti from Luxembourg as she shares what makes her happy from the inside out, too!

Are you a knee-jerk reactor to news and stimuli? Do you succumb to words or reports that excite, anger or otherwise move you to fear, anger or unrest? If so, you’re not alone.

We all experience external probes that press our proverbial buttons. Those moments take us away from our peace, happiness and rest and, as unwitting followers, we unwittingly give away our personal power.

If you’ve struggled with being thrown off your place of peace and served as reactor rather than creator of your personal space, this empowering podcast is a help and reminder for you to reclaim it.

In this podcast, empower yourself to be a creator rather than a reactor. Be the power change you wish to see in the world – from the inside out!

Then, listen in to Amy Woo talk about what makes her happy from the inside out, too!
