What brings you pure joy? We must delve deep to find out what makes our heart soar. When was the last time you stopped to think about what makes you happy? We get so busy with our day filled activities that sometimes we don’t even realize our whole day or week has gotten away from us. Sometimes we feel guilty thinking about our needs because we are so used to putting everyone else’s needs before ourselves. Some of us are so closed off from our feelings that the mere thought of thinking about how we want to feel makes our head spin. It’s time to give ourselves permission to live the life we’ve always wanted and start living with more intention. Think about what our heart desires and do things everyday to get us closer to that goal. Do you want to write a book? Do you want to quit the job you hate and find something more meaningful? Do you want to travel more? Do you want to volunteer for a charity? Do you want to get out of debt and get your finances in order? No matter what it is or how far fetched your dream may be, start thinking now of how to make it come true. Just a simple change in our thinking can help tremendously. How about you ask yourself, “How do I do it?” instead of “Can I do it”? We will have to make some changes and face some fears, but it can be done. How bad do we really want it? We should always be learning, growing, and challenging ourselves to be a better and happier person. Otherwise we will just be passing time, and not really living our full potential. So let’s start asking ourselves the big questions and find out what brings us joy. Make a list of things that brighten up your day and bring a smile to your face, then reference it often. Now go out and create, live life, be present, dream, laugh, and love with all your heart.
Dream big and take action my friends~
