What can you do or stop doing right now that will add more joy to your life, your day or this moment?
Do or don't do that thing.
I'm all about joy. I love feeling so happy I could burst! Isn't that the point of living?
Experiencing joy is a deliberate choice I make each day. This means that I'm willing to face and feel all the other murky stuff along the way to joy because my ultimate goal is to feel good - so I do what it takes.
Don't we all just want to feel good? To feel at peace? To feel whole and healthy and complete? To feel healthy and aligned and loved and filled with purpose?
If you answered yes to the above, are you doing the things that help make all those juicy things possible? Or are you just wishing and hoping that they'll magically appear one day without any new decisions or concentrated effort on your part?
I actually CHOOSE to feel good. It's not like there aren't a ton of reasons for me to feel shitty on any given day if I put my focus on those things. But I don't. Because I'd rather feel good.
I also choose to see beauty in everything. It's not like I'm blind to its opposite or unaware of the insanity in our world. But I choose to focus on what's good and beautiful as much as I can because the world needs more people who live and see with love.
I choose to change my thoughts when those thoughts hurt me because I deserve to be treated well by the woman I'll be with the rest of my life.
I choose to take full responsibility for my mental state and my sense of well-being because I would never want to burden another by making them responsible for my feelings or the quality of my life. What pressure!
I choose to learn and do better each day so that I can be better to myself and better to those around me.
I choose to spend my time in ways and with people who add to my life with their awesomeness because I know how precious each moment is and I won't squander any of them on things and people that deplete me.
And I give myself permission to feel as good as humanly possible because that's the point, right? Isn't that what we're all trying to do here? To feel good?
I want nothing less than the full expression of my highest self and all that it brings.
And I want you to want WAAAAAYYYYYYYY more of the juicy, good stuff and to believe you deserve to have it, too.
Because you do.

So what are you willing to give yourself today?
I'm hoping it includes lots of joy.
