Why cant I find happiness?
This is a question that I hear all the time. The answers are simple but putting them into action can seem nearly impossible.There is a lot of pressure that we place on ourselves to feel happy. You can certainly choose to be happy but sometimes it’s not very evident.
I mean let’s face it we all have shitty days, and I’m talking about the really crappy kind that are reminiscent of a baby’s diaper. You truly can conquer all obstacles on your own. But it’s easier when we heed the Chinese proverb that says that it takes a village.
Have you ever seen a cathedral built by one person? Exactly!
...The four C's
But by bringing people together who share the four C’s.
...Self love parties?...
You can begin to embrace feelings of hope, gratitude, inspiration and HAPPINESS!
This is why I decided to create a community of people just like I described above. I decided on doing seminars that I’d call “self love parties”. I was so excited until my friends thought I was marketing orgies, and they’d ask about my “masturbation parties”.
Needless to say, that wasn’t the “self love” I was talking about. My mission isn’t about sex (although I LOVE sex, I mean who doesn’t right?).
...A fun way to...
After many days of concentration, meditation and contemplation TCS was born, and today I present you with “The Charge Station”, a fun way to recharge yourself, where you can be united with a community of kind, caring and inspiring people who are focused on mastering the art of happiness.
When you come to my events, you’ll see the magic of personal power unfold before your eyes. I usually start off with an icebreaker question and people like you.. step up to share your knowledge, wit and humor with other members of The Charge Station.
...What's your sign?...
For example, at the last event the icebreaker question was…
"What is your horoscope sign and what do you know about your sign?"
I surprised everyone by offering a mini Astro reading for one person from each group. They fearlessly volunteered to get a reading even though I warned them that I wouldn’t hold back. They’d get the good, the bad and the ugly along with an intuitive reading. I offered somewhat cheeky analogies to highlight their traits and to express what I was sensing.
The entire room became an acoustic amplifier, as we heard the OOOHS…. the AAHHHS… the WOWs .. the giggles and laughter while we FELT the power of happiness. It’s because of people like you that I love hosting these events.
After the raffle people began to dance freely as they were making meaningful connections with new friends. You could see the power of unity, as people were supportive of others accepting and embracing differences as they chose to celebrate the oneness.
So to answer the question.. The easiest way to achieve happiness is by becoming a monk. They have mastered complete contemplative power over their thoughts and feelings. This is why they are such happy and peaceful people. Therefore, you can travel to a monastery and spend a few weeks, sitting for 10-15 hours in complete silence and meditation to learn to be happy on your own.
You can choose to HACK happiness!
Yep, we can do this together. By connecting with those around us, we can create an energy of love, empowerment and happiness. So, I’m inviting you to attend my next event. You’ll have fun and you’ll get a chance to win a cool prize, but above all you’ll help make this world or at least this part of Philly a happier place.
“Happiness is contagious, be happy to attract more happiness”
"Be excited about the unknown, let go of the outcome you will experience happiness"
"Know who you are, YOU are a free being and you are free to be happy"
I’d like to thank the following businesses for their generous prizes.
Cavanaugh's Headhouse for the tickets to a baseball game. Daniella Pascari for the Mani- pedi gift certificate and The Bronzed Bee for the Airbrush tan gift certificate.
I’d like to thank YOU for giving me and my vision the purpose and determination to hack happiness. When you come to my events, I feel humbled and grateful to know that you trust me enough to give me your support. Special thanks and many blessings to the couple who came all the way from San Francisco to be @thechargestation! <3
For those of you who continue coming to my events regularly …. THANK you.. and know that I LOVE you! I’m sending you many warm thoughts of positive good juju vibes for maximum success, health, wealth, love, happiness and of course good sex.
P.S. You are powerful!
