First Day

Service Learning

(Please click on box or photo to read entire blog). Thank you for joining me on my new website! I am The Happiness Life Coach and so excited that you are checking out Dr Hall on Call. This dream of mine has finally come to fruition after the seed was planted over 4 1/2 years ago and much work during the past three months. Hall Ways to Happiness has been branded as a method of guiding you towards finding your inner joy and directing you to living the life you have always dreamed of.

Happiness is a state of mind. Have you ever noticed that some people are grumpy all of the time? They are just depressing to be around. The old saying, “misery loves company” is true. One way to find happiness is to surround yourself with people who make you feel good and make you feel happy. I love sharing my joy of helping others less fortunate than me with students or volunteers and teaching them that you do not have to have money in order to “give.” The best “giving” of oneself is the gift of time and presence. This makes me happy.

Okay, so for now, this is enough from me on this first day of going live on the web.

Be sure to read my next blog on happiness on this website, titled, “Ways to be Happy With Everything.”

What makes you happy and how do you share your happiness or joy with others?

**Please leave your thoughts, ideas, and comments on sharing happiness.**

  1. Rob Mizera says

    I have come to know Dr. Hall over the past year and am blessed to call her a friend. Our relationship started from almost nothing…some shared interests in others’ online blogs.

    Soon we began life, happiness, difficult life choices, suffering, bliss, joy, and everything in between.

    Dr. Hall is an incredibly insightful, wise, and compassionate woman with the courage, determination, and perhaps most important, the loyalty to help those around her live more fulfilling lives, whatever that might mean to them.

    I highly recommend Dr. Hall to anyone who needs some perspective and anyone who just wants to live a happier, more satisfying life. Rob Mizera

      Hello Rob: It has taken me way too long to respond to your lovely comment and for that, I apologize. I am really just now beginning to blog and here it is the end of June. Have been busy with authoring and clients.

      You are such a man with good character. I believe you have come to realize that anyone can have a bunch of friends when money is good, life is good, and all is well. People really find out who their true friends are during times of adversity. It is also during trying times that our tests of character and strengths come into the picture.

      Rob, I never had any doubts about you, even when you doubted yourself. You see, I saw things in you that you had forgotten. Even though our relationship was relatively new and grew into a friendship, I saw a man who never tossed out his value system, when it would have been so easy to have done so. That man, YOU – Rob Mizera – is a man of good character and high morals.

      I am honored to call you my friend. Peace and blessings.

      Shining my love your way, Dr. Gayle J. Hall

  2. As a licensed lawyer out of Minneapolis, your website is a benefit to my practice.

    Thank you for your good materials. Best wishes with your website!

      Dear Mr. Hall: Apparently we have two Halls communicating in this thread. I am sure you are not getting this Texas heat up in the Twin Cities. I have been to St. Paul and Minneapolis numerous times for political activities in previous years. Additionally, my father’s best friend of 40 years lives in Minneapolis.

      Thank you for taking the time to write. I was curious as to how my website benefited your practice, so I went to your site to see what kind of law you practiced. Hence, I learned that you also write articles – very good ones, I might add.

      I found a common ground in that you had written about our soldiers. So, I read the article you wrote about our military and the Service Member’s Civil Relief Act (SCRA). Great job! I have said it many times before…I have heard many times what happens to military families when they cannot keep up with the bills during the deployment of a spouse, or at any other time, for that matter (since the military does not pay well), if the other partner does not have a good income to support the family.

      I love learning, especially when I know I will be able to pass on the information at another time.

      I wish you the best of luck with your law practice. It looks as though you have been very successful. Nevertheless, should you, or anyone you know, need a dedicated Life Coach to help smoothly sail through tough waters or an ear to listen, knowing those words will never be repeated, please do come back to my website and schedule your initial “Hall-Call.”

      Again, thanks for stopping by. And to my readers, “No!” I am not related to Mr. Aaron D. Hall – that I know of.”

      Shining my love your way, Dr. Gayle J. Hall
