Find Happiness & Ditch Settling with Tess Brigham

No more blindly following what you’re supposed to do. It’s time to get clear, find happiness, and ditch the idea of settling. So how do you do that? Our guest Tess Brigham (MFT, BCC) has a few words of wisdom to help you get there.

May is mental health month and as someone who struggles with mental health, I thought we should have some conversations about it this month. In this episode, we’re talking about happiness. It feels sometimes like we’re always supposed to be happy, but you and I both know that’s not actually reality. On the other side of the coin, there’s a lot of people that believe you can never be happy. And that’s not true either. Somewhere in the middle is a place where happiness exists. The best part of happiness is that it can look different to you than it does to me. We get to define it and shape it.
