Hello My Beloved Beauties,
We did it, 30 days of Journaling for Joy!!!
How awesome is that?!? AND, if you didn’t actually do the journaling, but still became a Joy Seeker, well then, you’re to be congratulated as well.
It isn’t an easy thing to shift your perspective, and letting more JOY in sometimes seems counterintuitive when you have so many other things that demand your attention. The To-Do lists, the I have to’s, the I’m running late’s, even the day to day of living can require all of your energy. We live in a world where the demands on us are endless, and it’s been my experience that it’s HOW we deal with these demands that can make a profound difference in the way we choose to live our lives.
I believe the Universe is a benevolent place AND shit happens. Which is why it’s become imperative for me to choose JOY again and again and again. It keeps me grounded, it keeps me present, it keeps me mindful that it’s always the little things that add up to the most profound shifts back to Love, back to Gratitude, back to my SOULCare.
I believe that what you focus on grows. And if you add to that your intention (in this case, to be more Joyous,) and your attention (the practice of purposefully seeking out Joy), what you focus on (feeling FULL of Joy) grows exponentially.
I hope our 30 day intentional desire to purposefully seek out Joy and then to allow ourselves to feel more Joy lightened your spirit and filled your heart. I also hope it helped you find your center with a little more grace and a little more ease. If the The To-Do lists, the I have to’s, the I’m running late’s, and the day to day of living can be filled with even a tiny sparkle of Joy, the day becomes that much more brighter, the relevancy of how and why and where you choose to spend your energy becomes that much more relevant. And, who knows, you might even find yourself having a little fun instead of feeling bogged down.
One thing I’ve come to know for sure, the more Joy I invite into my every day, the more content I am, the more patient, the more kind, the more appreciative of even the struggles that can show up.
I promise you, inviting more JOY into your every day will have long lasting and miraculous effects not only on you, but on those you love. Think about it, when someone’s a little more buoyant, a little more smiley, a little more happy… you can’t help but feel all those things too. Joy is contagious. And I’d much rather spread JOY and Love and Gratitude than anything else. Wouldn’t you?
Thank you again for all your love and support. Thank you for sharing your JOY moments with me. AND, let’s keep going…. Keep being a Joy Seeker, keep inviting in more Joy and more and more.
Life is meant to be lived to its fullest. Let JOY help make your time here — our time here — as brilliant and and joyous as possible.
Love to you always.
PS Knowing we were Journaling for Joy together, brought me so much Joy. Thank you!
Sharing what works for me in living the kind of life I love and thrive within is what Beautiful You and now, Dream a Bigger Dream is all about. When we combine our energy in seeking out things that fill us up, we are not only healing ourselves, we are healing the world. Here’s to your JOY!
