We all deserve to live a life of joy and passion. But that’s not always easy, especially during challenging times. I know, I’ve been there.

Yet, I’ve discovered key practices and mindset shifts that will allow you to reconnect to the whispers of your heart and commit to a life of meaning and purpose once again. You’ll learn how to build resilience, become more energized and eagerly embrace your day.

If you’re in NY State or Texas, contact me here for a free 15-minute phone chat to discover whether my passion and experience might just be the solution you’re looking for to live a more joy-filled, meaningful life.

In my profession as a psychologist for over twenty-eight years, as well as in my own life journey, I’ve come to see that happiness is a choice. And this choice requires us to behave in ways, whether outwardly or inwardly (our thought habits), which support the happiness choice.

A few years ago, during a discussion with a family member regarding “happiness,” my relative told me about a lecture that she had attended about the meaning of life. During the lecture, the speaker said something to the effect, “Happiness is like sand. Each day, we need to continue to pick up the grains of sand to create our happiness.” That quote, whether or not I’ve mangled it, has stuck with me and has put a frame around the moments of my own life.

And these are the thoughts and considerations, I’m sharing with you through my blogs, my book, The Passionate Life: Creating Vitality & Joy at Any Age, and my radio show, Dr. Mara & Your Golden YearsI’m excited to connect you to all the wonderful sources and inspirations all I’ve been experiencing on my own journey!  Remember that wherever you are is a perfect place to start.  Whatever has happened on our paths has brought us all to this point together, and I welcome your company as we join together on this joyful and healthful trek of life.

“Humor is one of the most powerful ways to break the cycle of negative thinking and it’s resulting depressed or anxious mood. Humor interferes with that downward spiral of energy-zapping thoughts, by helping us to notice the absurdity of situations that may anger or threaten us. Laughter creates positive emotions, such as joy, amusement, hope, confidence, and overall well-being.”

“Optimism leads to a more positive mood and defeats feelings of depression. Being a realistic optimist means we’re aware of challenges, that we know we need to take the appropriate actions in order to achieve what we want, and that we focus on looking for the best steps to take and, conversely, that we work on accepting those things that cannot be changed.”

The Passionate Life: Creating Vitality and Joy at Any Age is a guide for all who want to live a more vital, joyful life! After all, Passion, Joy, and Vitality are not just for the young! They are meant for the young at heart no matter what our age.
