“Why am I so happy?” I am asked – over and over – for as long as I remember. It may be the big smile on my face, sharing a kind word with someone, or spontaneously dancing to a song. I have these joyous moments without thinking why I feel such joy.

Happiness is my natural state of being and my birthright. I welcome each opportunity to express it. This does not mean there aren’t times that I must consciously reject negative thoughts and choose to 

smile by reflecting on all the good things in my life — for which there are many.

I have seen tragedy and experienced sadness just like every other person. I faced challenges with strength from the very day I came into this world. I was born premature weighing less than 3 pounds. My anxious parents were told I would probably not survive the night. I must have had a strong will to live, even then, for I not only survived in good health but thrived.

Paula Neva Vail, Owner of Wellness Inspired, is recognized nationally as a powerful advocate of personal empowerment. From customers to friends, from brief interactions to professional connections, Paula’s greatest gift is to inspire others, and in so doing, helps make this world a better and happier place.

“Positive energy can and will help others in a plethora of different ways, but just like everything else, there is a process to using it and cultivating it.” She brought her talents to radio, hosting the first internet talk radio show on Voice America: “For the Love of Reiki.”

She hosted the show more than two years and loved every moment. In 2015, she expanded to other networks and TV, re-naming the show: “Choices: Finding your Joy”, on Seattle, AM Radio 1150KKNW, as well as You Tube.
