Skip, dance, cartwheel!
Playful running, skipping, hopping, jumping, cartwheels, hand stands, and all those good feelings that came with them. How can we bring those joyful feelings back into our lives today?
You may not feel like you can do a cart-wheel anymore, but those passions for joy that we felt early in our lives are still possible and ready to play with you today!
Please take a moment to daydream a little with me.
Go back in your memory to when you were younger, maybe under 10. What were some of your favourite things to do? Take your time and really enjoy the experience of one or two in your mind.
How do you feel when you are there dreaming about this? Which of your senses come alive for you?
Personally, I reflect back and remember dancing. I felt so much joy and a feeling of being free when I danced as a child. Whirling and twirling, in the flow of my spirit. I can feel my heart expand with happiness when I think about it and my body feels like it wants to move.
When we can feel those sensations today from a simple memory of something in our youthful past, we now have an anchor into feelings and sensations that we truly appreciate.
We have a few choices of how to take this forward into our lives:
We can actual get out there and do what brought us that joy many years ago.
We can pay attention to the things we do today that bring us that kind of joy and do them more!
We can set an intention to find the activities that bring us those feelings and then use our intuition to guide us there.
We deserve to feel joy everyday and it is up to us to find the ways to bring ourself joy. Tweet This!
Let’s remind ourselves and encourage our friends and family to do the things that bring us the most joy. Because really, isn’t that joyful feeling the whole point!
What will you do today to bring more joy into your life?
Please share your comments and experiences so we can grow together!
