You know you want to be happy and you know it's important for your wellbeing. However, you're confused and unclear about how to actually get to happiness. This isn't surprising as there are so many myths and messages being shouted from the rooftops.

Childlessness: Is It A Gift Or An Affliction?

I am not someone who tried tirelessly to have a family; who spent thousands of pounds and years of my life on failed IVF treatments; who received a devastating diagnosis of unexplained infertility; who tried and failed to adopt; who miscarried; or whose child tragically died. Nor am I someone who's imagined herself as a mother throughout her adult life.

It's easy to live small - to stay safe and hide behind our thoughts of 'I can't, I won't or I don't want to'. But consider, all of these thoughts are just that. Thoughts. They're not real. Just illusionary limitations, self imposed prison cells.

Now I'm the person who knows exactly what she wants and takes action towards it every single day. I have goals and dreams and while I'm super driven and determined, there are times when I have to deal with those thoughts of, "What if this doesn't work? Or, Why hasn't this happened yet?"

Redefining Happiness

Susanna Halonen

As the Happyologist®, the most common question I get asked is, "Are you always happy?". To this, I confidently respond, "No, I'm human." It took me years to fully understand this question and to respond to it confidently. Why? Because I, just like the rest of society, had totally misunderstood what happiness is.

In that same way, there are three major benefits that you can try to seek from social media and you really have to think about whether you actually are getting those benefits or just think you're getting them.

I know there are loads of women who aren't mums who I could coach, I could choose to work with people who are struggling to conceive or who don't want kids. However, this is not my reality and I believe when you are a coach you are meant to work with a certain group of people. For me, my tribe is other mums.

A couple of months into my trip, it was the anniversary of Laurens' death. It was a difficult day and speaking to his Mother made me long to be commemorating the day with them. That night, I slept in the desert in Jaisalmer, and let myself cry for him and all he was missing out on. But as I gazed up at the stars, I was reminded that whist he'll always be the brightest star in my sky, the universe still has a lot to offer me.

Sleep deprivation coupled with that unsettling, guilt-inducing sense of being 'trapped' at home whilst my husband went out into the world - speaking to adults, drinking hot coffee, going to Pret - definitely contributed to my rage, but I think the real issue was the difference that was beginning to show itself in our approach to children and parenting.

In the midst of hurt and pain of heartbreak, the last thing that you can imagine yourself doing is laughing and yet the benefits of doing so can be extraordinary because laughter is a natural healer.
