True stories and practical advice for women about how to feel better today
This book is for anyone who's ever sacrificed her own happiness trying to make someone else happy . . . who's assigned her happiness, one more time, to some future date “in a galaxy far, far away.” It's no big deal, happiness can wait. And—duh—it does.
But it doesn't have to. With And Then I'll Be Happy!, relationship writer and former saboteur of her own happiness, Kristen Houghton, gives women the tools they need to shake off the unhappiness epidemic. In a beguiling blend of practical advice and humor, she debunks the myths about how and when women find happiness. Houghton presents true stories of women who put their happiness on hold for different reasons, provides tips on what readers can do to avoid a similar problem, and identifies the major mindsets that keep women from happiness.
With this book, women everywhere—whether in the midst of their careers, choosing to be stay-at-home moms, or caring for aging parents—can put their happiness right where it belongs: in the present.
Kristen Houghton writes the exceedingly popular column Relationships for Examiner.com, which has millions of readers worldwide. She is a regular guest on radio talk shows.
