The Goddess of Happiness

Guest Author - Deborah Crawford

The Goddess of Happiness: A Down-to-Earth Guide for Heavenly Balance and Bliss was written by Debbie Gisonni, a fifteen-year veteran of the high-tech industry. The successful Gisonni had it all. Then she lost her mother, father, sister and favorite aunt, all within four years. After four more years of ever-increasing success and responsibilities, Gisonni quit her job and spent some time soul-searching.

The end result is that she started Real Life Lessons; her own company devoted to making life easier and happier for women and became the goddess of happiness. With this book, she shows the rest of us how we are our own goddess of happiness and how we can be more happy.

Your journey to happiness begins with a quiz to determine your current level of bliss. Then, in very short, 1 or 2 page chapters, Gisonni shows you how to capture even more happiness for yourself. Each chapter ends with five ways to practice the chapter’s lesson or skill and space for writing your own related affirmations.

Gisonni has some great suggestions for all of us. Much of it is what you’ve probably heard before, but she presents it in a straight-forward, simple, easy-to-incorporate way in just a few short pages. For example, in the chapter on Play, she shares with us how her husband encouraged her to swing in the park and she had a great time rekindling a childhood joy. Then, she encourages us to play—buy a hula hoop! Her “five ways to play” list includes revisiting your favorite childhood games and do one each week. For me, that would probably include swinging, lip-synching to The Partridge Family, climbing a tree, making mud pies, and jumping rope. I might need to train for a few months first!

The Goddess of Happiness has so many ideas for us: slow down, stop the noise, choose joy, lighten up, indulge, simplify, accept your life, be rich, ask for help and many more. I read through this book all at once first, and now I re-read chapters every day, sort of as happiness reminders. Because I know happiness is a choice, and yet, sometimes, life makes you forget for a minute. With this handy little guide, you can build your own happiness from the ground up, or renovate what you already have.

I highly recommend this book for your library. Get your copy here: The Goddess of Happiness: A Down-to-Earth Guide for Heavenly Balance and Bliss Your goddess will thank you!
