My Guide to Happiness

My guide to happiness:

– Find a hobby that makes you smile. This will nourish your soul through difficult times.
– Explore the world, whether via books, travel, or whatever. Learn about other people and try to understand their world. This should teach you compassion and encourage you to help others.
– Find someone who makes you laugh and treasures you. (Not necessarily a spouse – could be a friend!) This will buoy you through the pain.
– Find a job that intrigues and challenges you. This helps you grow and feel effective/useful.
– Remember that fights between you and those you love are you two against an issue, not you against each other. If they really aren’t, then maybe that person is toxic to you.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
