Pamela Ackerson’s storytelling all began with her younger brother, creating wonderful children’s stories on vacation trips to keep him occupied. Later, she started writing poems and short stories as a teen.

Born and raised in Newport, RI where history is a way of life, Pam lives on the Space Coast of Florida where you are encourage to reach for the stars. She’s just a hop, skip, and jump from Orlando and Disney World, where imagination and fantasy abounds. She has three children, all girls, three grandchildren, and a wonderful husband who puts up with her writer quirks.

Pam may have majored in child psychology with a minor in English, but her distinguished choice of careers never made fruition. Instead, life led her to working in restaurants, interior decorating, owning an advertising business, content editor for a publishing house, teaching and owning a ballroom dance studio, and real estate investments. She is a practicing herbalist and has been involved in the use of natural treatment with raw herbs for over thirty years. As her day job, she currently works as the V.P. of Marketing and Advertising for the book review magazine, Affaire de Coeur.

To multiply your happiness, divide it with others.

Fortune Cookie Wisdom makes us think, even the cute ones that talk about how someone’s stink may be perfume to someone else.

I love people, animals, gardening, and anything to do with nature.

Mitakuye Oyasin means we are all related. (Lakota) We all have a connection with each other. We have been given the gift of life, the earth, plants and animals. We’ve heard these words many times in our lives, but have we really heard them. Even Disney celebrates the gifts of Mother Earth in the lyrics to Circle of Life.

Which brings me to why multiplying happiness is so important to me.

Sadness is contagious.
Anger is contagious.
Frowning is contagious.
Emotions are contagious.
Smiling is contagious.
And most of all happiness is contagious.

Sometimes when life messes with me, I just have to go outside and let nature envelope me. Let the sun shine on my face and warm my soul. It stimulates peace for me, which in turn makes me happy.

I want to spread happiness. I don’t want to be remembered as that woman who was always unhappy, never smiling, bitter, etc. Life hasn’t been perfect for me. Trust me, I could tell you some things about my life that’d make your soul weep. But I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to hold onto the sadness, or anger.

Like I could change what happened anyway…so I’ve accepted it. Allowed it to bruise me, superglued the cracks in my heart and soul and refused to let the tragedies keep me down. I’ve picked myself up off the ground and wiped off those bloody knees and was determined to not let it ruin me. (Although, I will admit some things took longer to recuperate.)

I found that helping people and keeping a positive attitude is an excellent way to spread happiness. Because, oh my goodness, how good does happiness and contentment feel? Why not share the warmth in your heart?

Smile, and watch people smile back.

Pay it forward.

To you, all my brothers and sisters, I offer a virtual hug. And if we ever meet at an author event, chances are, I’m giving out hugs. They’re free you know!

Have a good moments day,
Pam Ackerson

  5. I always seem to get the most apt fortunes in my fortune cookies! Too bad the lucky numbers on the opposite side really are not the winning lottery numbers! Then I could be like Uncle Scrooge! Instead of being surrounded with money though, it would be books and more books!
