Joy is the highest form of energy, the highest frequency. It is the most powerful emotion and the one emotion many people lack the most. Joy comes from within. It is not something that can happen outside of you. Which is why many of us struggle with this emotion because we spend more time looking at outwards than inwards. We seek acceptance, love, happiness and validation from others and we neglect our inner being. This post is just a quick reminder on the reasons why we should focus on what brings us joy. I will be writing my lifestyle posts like this because I feel a lot more needs to be said about topics like this.
This morning, my meditation was all about activating joy and activate I did. It was a 22 minutes guided mediation on YouTube, and it helped me connect with my inner joy. That is the great power of mediation. We all need to focus on what brings us joy and do them everyday. That way we feed ourselves emotionally and stay grounded in the midst of the chaos.
Do what brings you joy
So what brings you joy? For me I have really found myself for the first time in my life, and that brings me so much joy. The joy that comes from being self aware is second to none. You don’t need acceptance or validation from anyone when you are self aware, when you know who you are. When you are sure of yourself, you know what you want and you go after it without reservations. You don’t need anyone to give you a pat on the back, you just get on with it because you are sure of yourself and that brings so much joy.
Self awareness helped me find my joy
Being self aware and confident has allowed me focus on my passions and future. I work from work and that allows me care for my children the way I want to and also support my family. It has also allowed me study from home. I started studying with The Open University last month; I am studying a Psychology degree and the fact that I am able to have this sort of lifestyle for now brings me so much joy. Being able to work and study from home is amazing and it feels my heart with so much joy. However, I needed to look within and stay within to find my joy. If I listened to others or compared myself with them, I won’t be where I am today. I will be busy keeping up with the Joneses and I would have been filled with regrets upon regrets. Staying grounded helped me find my joy and keep it.
When you do what brings you joy, your life purpose will unfold. That is what happened to me. I now know for certain what my life purpose is and I am going to achieve all I am destined to achieve. I love this quote –
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” ~David Viscott.
This short quote sums it all up. To find your gift and give it away, you must be self aware. Being self aware and working on your life’s purpose will bring you more joy that you could ever imagine. Look within and find your joy.
