Find your JOY
I was told once, that if you go back to doing the things you loved when you were 12 years old, that is where your true passion really lies.
Find a quiet place.
Close your eyes and breathe.
Visualize your 12 year old self. Everything about her. Her features, her hair, her smell, her movements.
What did she enjoy? What did she surround herself with? Who did she enjoy spending time with? What brought her happiness?
Stay with her as long as you need.
Open your eyes.
Seek and experience what your 12 year old self liked.
Maybe they'll bring you joy maybe they won't, but it's a place to start.
You have the time. Live your authentic life. You deserve it. Because you really do. Seriously, close your eyes say "I deserve joy".
Whether you're a parent, working professional or a retiree it can feel daunting to discover the things that bring you joy. Feel empowered to start sewing pillows, making bracelets, journaling, joining a sports team, going for walks or spending time with animals? This is not silly - it is essential to do the things you love in order to lead a fulfilling life.
When you're feeling mundane and down in the dumps, when your life is lacking enrichment and joy, that is the time to start doing the things on your JOY LIST.
What is on your JOY LIST?
