Living your joy is one of the greatest gifts you can give to the world.
When we feel joyful we positively impact everyone close to us, whether they are aware of it or not. We also create bubbles of free-floating energy that touch people we don’t even know. Joy is an antidote to suffering, our own and others, and is an extremely elegant way of lifting out of whatever we’re dealing with. At any point in time, we can stop and give ourselves permission to feel joy, even if it’s only for a few minutes – sometimes that’s all it takes to change our perspective.
If you’re willing, create some time to feel joy today or this week. The key is to do it consciously because the more conscious we are about anything, the more powerful it is, and the more powerful it is, the more impact it has. Whatever brings you joy: listening to music, playing with your pet, reliving a special vacation or a particularly meaningful success, treating yourself to your favorite meal, reading a wonderful book, spending time with a cherished friend or family member, letting the beauty of nature touch you, doing your artwork, helping another, engaging in your favorite sport.
Ironically, regardless of whatever you’re dealing with feeling joy is not only one of the most unselfish things you can do, it’s also one of the most impactful.
