Allowing Joy~

Being on the other side of this car experience (and actually buying a new car because of it) – It’s made me realize where I haven’t been allowing myself to have the things I’ve been dreaming of, come to fruition in my life.

I’d like to think that we all have dreams that we strive for – some are big dreams some are smaller dreams – it’s all relative though. What is a big hairy audacious dream to one may be not a big deal to another. But they all are valid and important to the person dreaming them.

It was very interesting to see where the dreams I’ve been dreaming of came up against my own beliefs and disbeliefs about what I could or couldn’t have, what I think I deserved and all the other places that this pattern was playing out in different areas of my life – both personally and professionally.

It made me see very clearly where I don’t allow the joy to enter in fully to my life. Here I’ve been saying for many years I’ve wanted something and when the opportunity presented itself easily and effortlessly, I practically turned away from it. The more I looked at my own fears about having what I really wanted, the smaller those fears became.

Now with a new expanded vision of what’s possible, I’m excited to dream bigger dreams knowing that I actually can have them too. It’s a matter of getting out of my own way to allow the joy to enter in and sweep me along on it’s radiant current.

So here are a few questions for you to ponder:

  • What dreams do you have and where are you finding yourself stuck in achieving those dreams?
  • In what ways do you allow joy to flow through your life, your career, and your business?
  • When you do allow the joy – what kind of results do you get?
  • Where are you not letting it flow through freely?
  • What needs to be shifted or changed in order to have more joy in your life?

Let me know what you think and where you might be getting stuck.

Here’s my challenge to you as well:

Practice Being Joyful today – just because – and see how it affects all the other areas of your life – your work, your co-workers, your family and your friends…

I can’t wait to hear about it from you!

And if you’d like a great resource to help you create more joy in your life, I highly recommend Patrick Ryan’s latest book ” Awakened Wisdom – A Guide To Reclaiming Your Brilliance“. frontcoverPatrick shares with us  the 8 States of an Awakened Life, which are a beautiful blend of ancient guidance and modern teachings, helping us to live life more fully and joyfully, in each moment.

Make it a great day~

To Your Success,
Michele
