be happy Each Thursday for the past year, I've written a post about happiness and hosted the Be Happy linkup. While it's been truly amazing and I've fallen in love with the whole Be Happy crew, lately I've been feeling the need to take a step back and make room for the new. Do you ever feel that way? Even if you have the best routine ever, it helps to shake things up a bit every now and then, right? After all, if we don't try new things, our senses can dull and we can lose our sparkle... and THE WORST thing you can do is lose your sparkle.

This community is so important to me, I've been reeeaally hesitant to take a break from the linkup. I know, I'm sure I'm being silly. Everyone will do just fine without this linkup each week. But it's become important to me and everyone who links up has become important to me. SO what to do?

Well... ask for help. I'm learning I don't have to carry it all on my own, in life or in bidness. While I'm traveling a bit this month, setting some new goals, and exploring new sparkly ideas, I've asked Louise of Laid Off Mom to host the linkup. Because she's the best ever, she said yes.

So head on over to Laid Off Mom, link up with Louise, and then pour yourself a drink for being so damn awesome. Cuz you are. At the end of the day, the Be Happy linkup really is about this community. Lots of love to all of you!
