Being happy is my message for you today. It seems so simple but yet so hard sometimes to keep that happy feeling. You might ask, “Why wouldn’t someone be happy, what is going on in a person’s life that would create otherwise”? Well, grouchiness can arise for us because of our mind set. What are we thinking about most of the time? Are we thinking happy and loving thoughts no matter what is going on in our lives and around us? Probably not! We have a tendency to continue to think about the unfavorable things in our lives more than we think about the good things in our lives. We tend to focus on the 2% that is going wrong, rather than the 98% of what is going right in our lives. Isn’t that quite funny as to what we do to ourselves? Maybe not funny “ha ha”, but funny in the bizarre sense that we self sabotage ourselves.​

How come we don’t focus on developing a sense of humor? How come we don’t focus on doing fun and happy things for ourselves and others? How come we don’t try and enjoy life to its fullest? Why do we fill it up with chaos and problems? Why can’t we choose to have joy in our lives and make that our intention every day? Do we think that if someone else is in a bad mood that we have to be in a bad mood also? Do we think that if there is allot of misery and pain in the world that we have to fuel it with our anger and frustration to make it better?

Let’s instead stand firm in who we are and be a vessel of happiness not only for ourselves but for others. If someone you care about tends to be displeased with you, do you know that their reaction is due to their own belief system? You know that saying “What you think of me is none of my business”? Well, it’s true. You cannot control how others feel or think and you can’t live your life to satisfy others when it goes against your inner truth. The only control you have is with yourself and what you think, feel and do. So if that is true for you, then that is true for them. They have no control over you, and you have no control over them. We all are individuals; each one of us is different and has our own path to follow. We cannot be all the same, not only is that contradictory to how creation works but it would make creation quite boring. We would all be from the same cookie cutter and there would be nothing else on the buffet. No choices other than the same ole cookie.​

So, go ahead and let go of what others do and say. Just focus on making yourself happy and loving. Discover the true you and love who you are. When you begin to go within and start respecting and loving yourself as a divine being, then your actions and being will be radiant with happiness and love. Your love and respect for others will come automatically for you are now in tune with your soul self-love. It all starts with us individually; it all starts from within us. Get it right with you and your life will become ideally filledwith the glow of happiness. Do it NOW my beloved ones and shine in your pure and delightful essence.

With Much Respect and Love,
Wendy Baudín
Self-Love Sherpa & Wisdom Guide

Wendy started paving her path to become a Self-Love Sherpa 30 years ago while doing plenty of deep and heavy lifting in her own life. Having dealt with and overcome a wide range of challenges, speed bumps, and life-changing experiences – ranging from surviving a near-death experience, suffering the tragic loss of a twin son at birth, navigating divorce, grieving the death of a parent, and facing and getting beyond bankruptcy, she acquired the skills to move ahead with grace — without carrying the weight of such heavy baggage. With a lifetime of formal and enrichment education fueling her journey to self-discovery, Wendy’s mission today is to work side by side with women at mid-life who have also seen a lot of life. They are ready to lay down their heavy burdens to step into the joyous lives of possibility that have been so close but seemingly out of reach – until now. Working together, Wendy takes them on a step-by-step journey to reach toward the mountain tops that are their highest and best expression of what they want their lives and work to be about today.
