Would You Rather be Right or Happy?!?

My week in pics: ‘Remote Working,’ sailing, exploring beautiful beach town Jávea, Spain!


Would you rather be right or would you rather be HAPPY?

Happy Friday!

First and foremost, THANK YOU to each and every one of you for your support and kind words last week when I shared my big decision… it is very much appreciated.

And, while I am super excited to be in the beginnings of a new relationship, it doesn’t mean it’s been nothing but sunshine and rainbows every day! 

In fact, although we had our first lovely getaway this past weekend, and went to the amazing beach town called Jávea, we also had our first little ‘tiff.’

It reminded me of a line in The Course in Miracles: Would You Rather be RIGHT, or HAPPY? 

Whether it’s with a friend, a family member, a significant other, a work colleague…  chances are you’re going to find yourself in some form of conflict at some point or another.

I mean we’re only human, after all.

And yet both you, and me, have a choice as to whether fighting or conflict is really what we want!

Watch this week’s video to learn more about the epiphany I had during our first tiff, as well as 3 ideas YOU can implement next time you find yourself facing a moment of conflict. 

So, next time you find yourself wanting to raise your voice, slam a door, or give someone the silent treatment, consider these three ideas:

1. Ask yourself: Would you rather be right, or happy? 

2. Pick your battles.

3. Get to the Heart of the Matter (and you just may realize it’s the heart that matters, in the end!)

And get honest with yourself about the perceptions, judgements, stories – running around in your head.


I want to hear your thoughts, comments, commitments below or on You Tube!

 Have a FAB week!
