Table Top Discussion - New Location Ellen's House

While Jane is still sightseeing across Europe we will have our tabletop discussion at Ellen's House. Location will be in North Scottsdale, address provided upon acceptance of meeting. There are two types of people in the world: those who choose to be happy and those who choose to be unhappy. Are you happy? Where does your happiness come from? Does it come from money, possession, other people? Or does it come from within.
Research has shown that happy people are happy because they make themselves happy.
Let's discuss best practices on how to be happy. Come to the discussion with your good habits that enhance your lives. A recent article listed the following
Don't hold grudges
Treat everyone with kindness
See problems as challenges
Express gratitude for what they already have
Dream big
Don't sweat the small stuff
Speak well of others
Never make excuses
Get absorbed into the present
I have attached more in the files section of the website and will bring a hand out to help facilitate the conversation.
Look for two volunteers to bring some snacks...:)
Look forward to seeing everyone

    Are we to pitch in $1 each meeting? This was just mentioned to me yesterday by someone and assume it is somewhere on this site?

    June 17, 2013

    • Ellen C.

      No the $1 is only for the monthly meeting at the Miracle Mile Deli. It helps defray some of the costs for the Meetup website and materials that Jamie buys.

      No problem here with that. Just asking as some groups have membership fees (low ones).

    OMG! I have so much to say about this as my focus has been all about transforming my life and figuring out who I am and what I'm all about. Don't have the answers, but it's quite a journey. I will bring my fav books on the subject.
