“What,” you may be saying. “No, I’m not.”
If you’re not open to change, happiness and joy, then yes you are. So, how do we move forward to a happier more satisfying life?
I have a few tips that will help you achieve that.
Allowing Instead of Resisting
We know that what we resist in our life persists in our life and as a result, we stay exactly where we are.
Allowing opens you to the happiness and joy already within you. Allow yourself to think and act differently. If it makes you feel good, trust it.
When you feel good you’re happy. Joy flows. It’s natural to feel this way.
What might you be resisting by not allowing your happiness and joy to be expressed? What are you learning from your situation?
Letting Go Instead of Holding On
To be truly happy is to be free of the hurt, triggers and emotional charges that keep us thinking the same old thoughts over and over until they become beliefs that keep us stuck exactly where we are.
Challenge yourself and dare to think a better feeling or thought. Letting go is a practice and doing it intentionally is the traction we need to move out of our rut.
Let go and open to love. Holding on to past anger only hurts you. Remember, while you’re holding on to anger or resentment, the other person is out dancing.
Trust Yourself Instead of Second Guessing
We have insight and inner knowing. Far too often, we ignore it and give in to self-doubt. Notice how quickly you dismiss your “gut feeling” or your “heart” and replace it with logic.
We loose personal power and vital energy when we continue to second-guess ourselves.
Pay attention to your inner knowing. It is as important as your logic.
Want vs Should
What do you really,really want? What do you want your life, or relationship or work to look like? How do you want to feel everyday?
What we truly want can be buried under layers of conditioning and beliefs that tell us we aren’t good enough, or worthy enough or smart enough to have or achieve what we desire.
Should, can be limiting. Want is desire and desire is linked to life force, purpose, and meaning. Uncover yours by substituting the word should for want and see what happens.
See the Good, See the Good, See the Good
People who are happy and satisfied focus more on what’s right and good and less on fear and lack. They see the beauty in themselves and others. Yes, even when you’ve asked a1000 times to have the toothpaste tube put back on.
Remember…your joy is already within you.
I’m happy to give you these tips. They are small steps you can take immediately to move you from where you are now to where you want to be.
