When I realized how true this was… how I alone, was the one who could create my own happiness regardless of anyone or anything around me, I found this sense of freedom and pure joy!
I mean, to have spent all those years confined to what my mind believed to be true. To feel as though I could only be happy when I had x,y, and z, when everything was perfectly in place… all those years I was confined by my own thought patterns.
Now, the simplest things bring me immense joy. The sound of my kiddos laughter (rather than their bickering 😉), the chirping of birds (not the squawking of my parrot 😉), every sunrise and sunset I get to indulge in, every workout I complete that makes me feel oh so good, every time I am mindful about the delicious foods I get to eat, every time I’m fully present to experience the moment.
These may seem like little things to many, in fact they are, but combined & compounded, they’re the entire picture!
Life isn’t perfect, but the thing is, when you realize how much power you actually have over your reality, it doesn’t have to be 💜
I’m curious… what is one simple thing that brings you immense joy? I’d love to know!
