August 8 is Happiness Happens Day, and the Secret Society of Happy People promotes happiness awareness during the entire month. While everyone knows that you can’t be happy every minute of every day, the Society says that you can have more happiness in your life.
The society founder writes that in seeking happiness, she bounced between numerous self-help models without finding a lasting solution. Ultimately, she came to see that being more happy was often about recognizing the happiness that is already around you. Some of that is about being happy about little things, she says, such as taking satisfaction in getting the kitchen cleaned or enjoying a puppy bounding about the yard.
It might seem like a frivolous cause for the month of August, but happiness is important. If you never experience happiness, then your enjoyment of life is quite restricted. We know that money matters can cause such a restriction — it’s hard to enjoy those happy moments when your mind is constantly at work mulling a major debt crisis.
Money might not buy happiness, but lack of enough money to pay one’s debts sure can destroy happiness. If you’re facing creditor phone calls throughout the day, having to constantly shuffle money to meet your needs or putting off bills, then we can help.
A magic solution to unhappy money problems doesn’t exist. There’s no wand you can wave to make it all go away. What you can do, however, is work with a legal professional to understand your options, such as Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Bankruptcy can help you find a way to deal with debt so you can get on with living life and recognizing your happy moments.
