It’s the holidays. And speaking of holiday cheer, I’ve been particularly, and amazingly, cheerful recently. I discovered the reasons why, which are not entirely surprising!
According to Psych Central, research has demonstrated the positive effect on [one’s] happiness as social interaction and taking part in voluntary work. I get a 2 out of 2 working with Sue Moore.
1) Sue has become a strong business partner and has invited me to join her Medicine and Horsemanship program. Through her amazing coaching skills and positive perspective, she has earned herself a place in my business and in my heart – fulfilling social interaction, too.
2) Through Sue, I found a not for profit, Empowerment Through Connection (empowermentthroughconnection.org). ETC is dedicated to providing education, improving communication skills, and promoting personal growth using horses as co-facilitators. Volunteering for ETC is an incredible experience!
Being with horses on a regular basis, learning the ins and outs of running a stable, as well as providing bodywork services has given me the opportunity to find my source of happiness.
I urge you to increase *your* happiness this season – try volunteering or make a donation! The pay-out is exponential!
Wishing you a Happy holidays!
