How to Live Joyfully Year-Round, Not Just at Christmas

We’re all looking for happiness in life. You’ve probably seen commercials that show priceless tender moments in life. But tied to those same commercials is the underlying message that if only we had more, bought more, travelled more, we would be happier. (How ironic!)

So we buy bigger toys. More gifts. Dig deeper into debt.

All in the hopes of making that happy feeling last just a bit longer.
