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 ๐Ÿ˜‰), the chirping of birds (not the squawking of my parrot ๐Ÿ˜‰), 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 ๐Ÿ’œ

I’m curious… what is one simple thing that brings you immense joy? I’d love to know!
