Interview with “Happy Bitch” Author Keryl Pesce [Wine and Bling GIVEAWAY]

 “She’s no longer a bitch. She’s a Happy Bitch!”

Keryl Pesce’s brand began with her self-help book entitled “Happy Bitch – The girlfriend’s straight-up guide to losing the baggage and finding the fun, fabulous you inside!.”

In her straight-up and “girlfriend-friendly” style, Pesce shares her new found perspective and strength following a painful divorce and shows readers how regardless of their baggage, they too can transform their lives from heartache and struggle to peace and lasting happiness.

I had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow pink-enthusiast Pesce recently and here’s what she had to say:-

A few of Pesce’s key tips to living a happier life:

  • Take the pressure off

If you’re feeling down, bitter, angry or whatever negative state you may be in, stop beating yourself up for feeling that way.

Often the pressure we put on ourselves to feel differently than we do is worse than the negative feeling itself.

Acknowledge that is how you feel right now without judging.

  • Think in terms of what you want

Do a thought check.

Do you spend the majority of your time thinking about what you don’t want and what’s wrong or what you do want?

Start paying attention to what you focus on because what you focus on expands.

Every time you catch yourself thinking about what is wrong with your life, stop. Interrupt your thought pattern and start asking “What do I want?”

You will be amazed at what answers and opportunities present themselves when you begin asking the right questions.

Lose the “Why me’s?”

They serve no positive purpose.

  • Make your happiness a priority

Studies show that every aspect of the human body functions better when we’re happy.

What makes you happy? What do you enjoy? Start doing more of that without guilt.

You were literally designed for happiness.

If you feel the people around you don’t make your happiness important, it’s probably because YOU don’t place enough importance on it.

Set some time aside for you and what you enjoy.

  • Bonus

The quickest way to feeling happier is to get out of your own head and do something for someone else.

Whether it’s a simple compliment to a stranger, showing gratitude to others or doing something kind and unexpected for another person, the act of lifting up another is a powerful “happy pill” you carry with you at all times.
