It’s time for another installment in the “Thing’s Making Me Happy Online” series. They are the things that are brining me much joy when I click around the internet. you know the stuff that puts a smile on my face, inspires my creativity and motivates me to keep striving for greatness. So without further ado…
I’ve been really into this whole concept of telling the story lately. In my current work as a Training Specialist( I teach adults stuff they need to know to do their jobs more efficiently) and in my work as a blogger, I find that I connect with people the most when I can pull them in with a story.

It could be nerves, it could be that I pick self-centered douche bags. Whatever the case may be, don’t fall into either of those categories by reading this very cool piece. If you happen to be deeply in love these fun questions can ignite some much-needed conversation.
So peeps, what’s currently bringing a smile to your face? I’d love to know in the comments below!
