Title of Talk: “Are you ALWAYS so Positive and Happy? How Your Attitude makes a Difference!”

Description and Take-Aways: Participants will explore happiness and attitude, and how paying attention to what makes you happy and your attitude about ‘things’ can impact your every day life. Additionally, we’ll dive into the idea that the words we use, with ourselves and others, are important and can have a profound impact on our approach to our lives.

Come have some fun, laugh a little bit, smile a lot, and leave with a smorgasbord of food-for-thought about being happy!
