Find Your Happy
Living a happy life is really our most important life's work.
While our clients are diverse in many ways, underneath all the presenting problems, precipitating events, hurt, and dysfunction is a very similar and consistent yearning to find fulfillment. Truth is, everyone is on a quest to discover more happiness; clients, friends, neighbors, co-workers, family (and counselors too!). And yet, few people know how to get there. We all want to live an elevated life, where we experience a deep SOULFUL REVOLUTION, understand our PURPOSE, live with INTENT, and GET OUR “HAPPY” ON! And as a counselor, we want our clients to be happier leaving therapy, then when they came in.
Kelly McClintock’s journey to becoming a “happiness expert” started in one of the most unhappy places on earth—the jail. As a jail-based therapist, Kelly worked with thousands of incarcerated individuals who knew the meaning of “rock bottom”, sadness, and despair; providing her a unique view of the profound human desire for happiness. Kelly realized that everyone seemed to be on a quest to discover more happiness; clients, friends, neighbors, co-workers, family, etc. And then in early 2014, it was she who was on a mission to escape the darkness that had suddenly engulfed her life. As the 2 nd and 3 rd opinions confirmed the news of a life-threatening diagnosis, she wondered if she would ever feel joy again. Find Your Happy is a no frills, cut to the chase (30 keys in 150 pages), comprehensive guide to happiness. Not the kind of fleeting happiness that comes with a joyful event (you get a new bike for Christmas,
score a touchdown, get a date with your crush) -most everyone experiences these. This book is about living an elevated life. A higher consciousness. A soulful awakening, where happiness and fulfillment are mainstays.
This book is as much for the counseling profession, as it is for the clients they serve!
