It’s mid-February again, and here at Mercer-MacKay, that means one thing — awards season has fully arrived!

It’s an exhilarating, occasionally overwhelming ride that can challenge my natural optimism and leave me feeling depleted and negative.

Even in those “down” times, however, I know that my mood isn’t at the mercy of external events. There are always choices I can make to regain fresh perspective and a sunny outlook.

In this week’s video and transcript, I share a few things that I can rely on to increase my happiness quotient — what are yours?

Send me an email and share with me what you do to combat a negative outlook.

Until next week,

Believe. Be Brave. Go Write!
