Follow your joy
Updated: Apr 11, 2021
There is no better place to go!
This is me in my happy place, literally BURSTING with joy!
Recently, I organised a creativity workshop.
Let me share the backstory to this. I was inspired to organise a creativity workshop during a public holiday. I thought about it, it felt right, and so I did.
The week before the workshop was very busy with many deadlines, long days and some not so happy news. Saturday night I couldn’t sleep and I Sunday I woke up a bit tired and with a headache. Did I have the energy for the workshop? Huh…..not sure, but the workshop was planned and I LOVE the people attending my workshops.
The moment I got online, I felt incredibly happy and energised! A lovely group of creative women was there, smiling, enthusiastic and ready to CREATE! In a split second, my energy level went UP! So we danced, created, scribbled, shared, connected, supported each other! It’s ALWAYS magic!
There is nothing that makes me happier than sharing the gifts of CREATIVITY with people! I LOVE to see people lighting up, feeling free, taking care of themselves (yes creativity IS self-care), and having fun.
We forget how important it is to follow our JOY, we get caught up in our to-do list, social and cultural conditioning, we prioritize EVERYING else but joy! but really, there is no better place to be than in our joy.
When I follow my joy and I do something that lit me up, my energy level is higher and I am a MUCH better human being.
Why do I share this with you? Because I want you to burst with JOY. The world needs the most alive version of yourself! And I know that the more we follow our joy, the more joy we find. In the beginning, it may be like a treasure hunt, we follow small breadcrumbs left on the ground, we only see a few breadcrumbs here and there, but then we start seeing more and more of them everywhere.
What gives you JOY? Can you do some of that today? Can you commit to doing at least one thing that will bring you closer to your joy today?
Go and do that. And repeat. And see what changes in your life.
