The #HowiHappy Survey by Happy Tears
Hello happy !!

Thank You so much for participating in the #HowiHappy Stories Series !!

Before you dive in, it is very important that I share the intention that I have in promoting your story within the HappyTears space.

Above all, I believe that there is an unbelievable power in vulnerability. My entire life turned around when I started opening up and sharing my story - both the struggles and the triumphs.

When we share our stories - our hopes, our dreams, our doubts, our fears… - not only does the act of sharing scientifically make us happier, but it opens up a door for others to see themselves in us, building real connections.

Dr. Brené Brown is an infamous research professor who presented her study on ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ in a TedTalk that went viral in 2010 (highly recommend - the video is below if you have an extra 20 minutes to indulge in personal growth after the questions!). Among an infinite list of powerful messages, one of the most powerful is this:

"Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we’ll ever do.”

If you’ve agreed to participate in this series, thank you for your bravery & thank you for choosing to use your voice with the best of intentions in service to our community! I can't help but think about all of the people of the past, present and future who are raised in circumstances that make them feel voiceless.

While we empathize greatly with them, I hope you recognize the power you have in this forum to inspire them to find their voice, to express themselves, to find validity in their dreams & to recognize that they are enough because they are.

Just for a moment, I want you to soak your mind in your very best intention.

And now, tell us... how do YOU happy?

Xo,

Brandon
