Finding Your Joy

Standard

Do you drag yourself out of bed every morning to do yet another marathon of endless mindless, repetitive things that have become so routine, you find yourself stealing moments where you dream of far away lands or vastly better things.Is that all there is to it, you wonder. The truth is, life can be a joyous, fantastic and utterly incredible experience in every moment of your life.

And how is that possible, you ask? Read on, this blog is for you.

Lesson Nbr 1 : Find Your Passion 

We were all are brought into this world with a purpose in mind. When we know and identify this purpose, and align our lives to the achievement of this purpose, it is then that we really start to achieve satisfaction in our lives. What is that you like to do, or have always liked to do. Think about it. What makes you smile , what delights your heart, what makes you feel the happiest in the world. Do you like bringing a smile to other people’s faces ; you are a Joy-Maker!  Do you delight in caring for other souls and helping them through trying situations and struggles ; you are a Kind Humanitarian Soul. Do you love dressing up, wearing beautiful clothes and bringing your  talents into the spotlight; you are a STAR! Maybe you love the sensation of trying out recipes and putting together new and exciting food combinations; you are a Masterchef in the making! Whatever it is you are passionate about,identify, acknowledge and accept that now.

Lesson Nbr 2 : Live Your Passion

Once you’ve identified your passion, find ways to bring this passion of yours to life. Whether you are a single or married with children, you have the potential to reach the highest level in the aspects of life which are important to you. So make the time to plan and live out your dreams now.  If you’ve always wanted to run your own restaurant, start working out your budgets, talk to other people who’ve done it, try out recipes, map interior design in your head, look at tableware. Action is what brings your dreams to life and makes your life the best possible it can be. So make that move and start working on your passion right now.

Lesson Nbr 3 : Rediscover the Child In You

Life was always fun when we were children, we played often , made friends easily and collectively disowned the adult world with glee.  An acquaintance of mine once told me “At heart, we are ALL children, we just look like adults”.

There’s a child buried deep inside you, longing to come out and experience the freedom of joy and happiness. Let him or her out. Take the time to laugh, be silly and absurd. Find, make, and maintain friendships with good people, the kind who you can call at 03:00 am in the morning. When we have caring and supportive friends with whom we can be ourselves, we are able to find a space where we become more safe and secure in ourselves. Do the things that are new and different from your routine and what you are normally used to. If you’ve always taken one route to go work, try an alternative route. Children are spontaneous and flexible. Work on bringing more of these qualities into your life to create a state of positivity and expectancy. And try things that scare you. If you’ve been thinking about bunjee-jumping, but have always been a little fearful of it, why not do it now. Spend more time with happy people, children and small animals, and rediscover the little things in life that made you happy as a child.

Lesson Nbr 4: Change the Way You Look at Life

Examine your thoughts from day to day, and moment to moment. Are they joyous, filled with positivity and brimming with expectation. Or are they negative, whiny, and self-pitying. The way you look at life is reflected in the surroundings you find yourself in. The more happy, joyous and sunny you are, the more situations you will attract into your life that reflect the way you think and feel about yourself. Happiness is a choice , not something that happens to us. We choose to be happy. Every time you find yourself thinking a negative thought, replace it quickly with a positive one, until it becomes a habit and a way of life. It is a simple but basic Law of the Universe. “Like Attracts Like”. Radiate Love, and you will attract more of it. Radiate Joy, and you will attract more of the same into your life.

Lesson Nbr 5 : Be Good To Yourself

You are an incredible being of light and beauty. If you only knew how truly beautiful you are in the eyes of the One Who Made You, you would never look at yourself or your life the same way again. You may think you fall short in so many ways, you may think that your life could be that much better, and you may think that you are so far behind from being the best you can be. But be kind to yourself. You have done the best you could do within the knowledge and awareness that you had. It is never too late to change your path and put yourself on the road to personal greatness. You are bigger than all the foibles and failures that have gone before. Start to make the small changes in your life and slowly, but surely, even you can achieve the life that you’ve always dreamed of.

May God Bless You With Infinite Light and Happiness!
