Time to talk about joy!

.

Joy is like feeling alive, feeling passionate and excited about what is possible in this life. This is the emotion I feel most easily. It's naturally there.
.
You might feel like what's the point to all this, life is just hard, confusing, leaves you in difficult situations, overwhelmed. Then you want to just give up, shut down and hold yourself in that heavy, lonely place. Its as if you want to punish yourself and others by keeping you miserable, proving yourself that life is miserable.
.
But actually you always have a choice in any moment. You can choose to feel joy same as you choose to hold yourself in that misery. It's not fake until you make it, its when you feel all emotions that most people avoid to feel, fear, anger, sadness etc and release it by fully feeling, you'll naturally feel more joy. The lower you can go, the higher you can go. Rather than running around with sacks of potatoes, you let them go, so you are lighter, more expanded and alive.
.
People I see with most joy are actually the ones that are honest with themselves, who feel all the emotions. Then when they do feel joy, passion, happiness they feel much more. Whenever I cry loads, I feel a wave of joy and aliveness wash over me after.
.
Whenever you feel joy, feel it fully, put your hand on your heart, close your eyes and anchor this moment in your heart, knowing that whenever you put your hand on your heart, you'll feel it again. Your body remembers even when you forget.
.
If you want to laugh, allow yourself to laugh hysterically. If you're worried what other people will think, know that they're just people and after 15 mins they'll forget what you did anyway, they have their own shit going on, they're worried what other people will think as well 😂
.
So how do you connect to that joy?
.
Follow these steps:
- Always acknowledge how you are feeling in this moment. Know that it doesn't define who you are.
- Imagine yourself in the future as your best self, whole, complete, exactly how you want to be and even better.
- Ask them, 'What's my next inspired action to connect to my joy?'
- It doesn't have to make sense, don't judge it, just follow that.
.
Whenever you doubt something, always ask your higher or future self. It's empowering yourself to find your own answers rather than asking others.
