Last week week I spoke about the importance of taking time away in sweet retreat to connect us to what we want, need, and desire. Did you plan to take a mini retreat as I suggested?
March is here. Spring will be coming soon. Time is moving fast! Before we know it, 2018 will be here. This is why I feel it's important to inspire you to ask yourself a question.
As I share in my book Reclaiming Joy, this question has become one of the guiding principles of my life.
The question: Am I Enjoying..."this"?
By "this" I might mean: the food I put in my body, how I spend my free time, the way I share my work and everything in between. Quite frankly, "this" is my life.
Everyday I have conversations with people who aren't enjoying some or even all aspects of their life. My heart sinks when I hear this.
1. Life is Short.
2. We are meant to be JOY.
3. It's unnecessary.
When we realize we are the captain of our ship, we have the opportunity to take responsibility for the choices we make. As I've said countless times before, enjoying life starts with waking up. It's true. Often we are woken up by pain and suffering that has become too much to bear -- from an illness, an addiction, or a loss of some type. Whatever it is that causes us to wake up, the process is nectar for our growth.
So my friends, let's not waste another moment asleep in our precious life. Start now. Choose JOY. Commit. Get support. Take action. Celebrate. Repeat.
How???? Yes, I talk about all of this in my book. I wrote the book to help bring more JOY into the world, one person at a time :)) In the meantime, my post from earlier this year will help you get started.
