Dr. Sue's CD "Keys of Love"Maxing out your joy and minimizing the impact of upsets are learned skills. My blog is based on the belief we can learn from the experts, our own experiences, and each other. Circumstances may differ, but they often reflect common basic truths. Happiness is a Habit…we can learn how, practice, and have fun! Post your questions and comments, and I’ll try to show you how to be happy if…


I started writing HOW TO BE HAPPY IF… as a journey to happiness.  It’s not that I was deeply unhappy, in fact, people often commented on my good cheer – so maybe I already knew some things intuitively – even though I never articulated them clearly. But I knew my inside didn’t always match my outside.  I like coordinated outfits – so this would not do 🙂 .

Also, I knew from my own experience as a published author (“Queens of Comedy”), entertaining speaker, singer-songwriter, and musical theater writer (“Boulevard X”) that striving for my professional goals did not mean that everybody would support me; and my success did not guarantee freedom from stress. As people who are much more famous than me have discovered, sometimes success brings even bigger challenges.

Besides my own creative efforts, I deal with the usual challenges of life: relationships, work, health, money, etc.  Handling challenges and creating positive relationships and attitudes takes some real thought, people skills, and practicing  “Happiness Habits” .  Writing this blog and practicing Happiness Habits has been very helpful to me – and that’s a great reason to keep on doing it!

I hope what I have learned – and am learning – can help you – my readers, viewers, and listeners. At my job,  I am a professor. In my life,  I have many teachers – famous experts, celebrities, so-called “ordinary people” – like the handyman in my building, my own experiences, and you – who take the time and trouble to respond to my blog.

The “If” in “How to Be Happy If…” refers to the fact that we face challenges – money, relationships, health, family, etc. – that are sometimes enormous! If we can be happy – or at least balanced and calm – in the face of those challenges, then we  can make wise decisions, take effective actions, and lead better lives.  I also believe that Happiness is a Habit – we can learn how, practice, have fun, and reap enormous rewards! So please join me on a wonderful journey and learn HOW TO BE HAPPY IF…
