Happy Monday! This week we are going to be talking about all things happiness. I find that when it comes to happiness it is something we all long for especially when we see others being happy. After the long and draining week many of us endured last week due to the Texas weather I started to think about how we can maintain happiness during stressful times. Happiness is so much more than a feeling and has so much more to do with who you are surrounded by and your situational mindset.
