“As a child, I remember writing a song about being happy. It was simplistic. My singing was (and still is) atrocious. But the lyrics from that song still resonate with who I am today: “Be happy. There is nothing more than being happy. Every day, play, play, play, there is nothing more than being happy.” (OK, I told you it was simple!) Seriously, I live with the sense that we aren’t meant to plod through life getting by, but instead live the most fulfilling life possible, being present in each moment and spreading positivity to others.”

While people (pessimists!) call me idealistic, I believe we all have a choice in life and I choose HAPPY. I don’t believe we should postpone joy for down the road or after we have achieved this or that, but to create, plan and live our joy daily. It’s my mission to inspire others to find happiness, have more fun, feel more fulfilled and reap all the benefits that come from living a positive life.”
Sandra lives in the mountains of beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, with her husband, twin baby girls and two cats.
