This class is truly chock-full of outstanding people. They are engaged and enthusiastic. They stayed after! As I listened to their stories tonight, I know in my heart what’s coming for them; that their lives are about to get better, that coping skills will be learned, self-esteem will be healed and happiness will improve. Several students said they felt like they’d won the lottery by being accepted into the class. While I get it, I still feel like the most fortunate one in the room, for I get the privilege of teaching Happiness 101.
