Happiness

Live, Laugh, Love...

I woke up one morning in July of 2012 and decided I was no longer happy with my job.  While I loved the people that I was working with, the tasks I was completing each day filled me with no joy.  There was no excitement; my professional life was stagnant.  It was then I realized I was much too young to be having these feelings.  In my head I had 3 choices; stick it out and be miserable, find a new job in a new company, or relocate to our company headquarters in California.

Live

"So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life.  That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun."  Ecclesiastes 8:15 (New Living Translation)

Laugh

"So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while."  1 Peter 1:6  (New Living Translation)

Love

"Three things will last forever: faith, hope, and love.  The greatest of these is love."  1 Corinthians 13:13  (New Living Translation)

After much prayer and discussion, my husband & I have decided to LIVE.  I was offered and accepted a job at my corporate office in California.  I've moved ahead of them which isn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be.  A small price to pay; we'll all be together again soon and I can't wait.  Until then, I'm entertained nightly by my family via Facetime, they are a LAUGH a minute!  All of these things are made possible for me because I believe in a God who grants the desires of our hearts and because I have a husband who LOVES me enough to follow me to another new city, and be both Mother & Father to our daughter while I pursue new opportunities for my career.

STOPLIGHT PRAYER:  Father in Heaven, thank you giving me life and for guiding me through it.  Thank you for making your will for my life the desire of my heart and for guiding me through life.  Help me to listen for your voice amidst the static that tries to throw me off course.

My Family This is my beautiful family.  I love them for supporting me in everything I do and can't wait to start this new adventure with them.

The Happiness Tour Begins in Texas

One tour, one goal, seven countries, eleven months, 75,000 people. Life-Change Specialist, David Garcia will spend the next year speaking in schools, churches, youth camps and jails. "My calling is to strengthen people  through laughter." His "you can do it" message comes from experience. David wasn't an ideal student. He was hyperactive, liked to make people laugh and didn't know how to channel his energy.

"Shut your mouth Microphone Man!" were words spoken by one of his teachers."Who would have known that she would be right? I make my living on a microphone!" says David. "My senior year in high school, my teacher said,"Mr. Garcia, you are going to have a tough time if you plan to go to college." She was absolutely right. I did have a hard time. I had to work full time and it took me nine years to finish my Bachelor's degree, but I did it. Now all my energy works to my advantage. I'm working on a doctorate, doing public speaking and I run fifty miles a week. I'm a twenty-first century missionary. Wherever I go, I want to impart joy, because laughter is the language of love."

David speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian.While the Happiness Tour begins on the Texas/Mexico border, this fall he will take his message to Germany, Belgium and Switzerland. He captures the attention and the trust of his audience with his sketch comedy and once the audience is captivated, he becomes a straight-talker, motivating people to believe they have the capacity to impact the world in a positive way . He uses personal anecdotes as examples that faith and perseverance are explosives that pave the way for change.

I believe every human being deserves to be happy and fulfilled in life.

This former hyperactive boy turned multi-lingual motivator believes that each person has value and a mission in life, and his goal is to point as many as possible in the right direction.
