Do what brings you joy

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.

OOTD: The Suede Look

OOTD: The Suede Look

Suede Dress Image

Hey peoples. It is a new week and I have a new outfit for you. I am so proud of myself, so far this year, I have had at least 2 outfit posts each week. I have been super organised, planning outfits well in advance, and finding the time to actually photograph them, against all odds. I hope this organisation carries on for the rest of the year. It will be amazing.

There is something about the suede material. I find it so very chic, so it should come as no surprise that I have quite a few suede pieces and accessories. Suede pieces play a major role in my winter wardrobe, I find them stylish, easy to wear, and dead warm. Perfect for the chilly weather.

I love this Red Herring tan sleeveless suede dress. It is the PERFECT dress. It can take you from day to-night easily, and the relaxed fit is so my style. I got this beauty in the sales, it was a whooping 70% off, best bargain ever.

My only issue with this piece is I am not too sure how to get it cleaned. the label say no washing, no tumble drying, dry clean only, but on the website it says machine washable. I know the label instructions should override any other instructions, but I am kind of hoping I can wash it in the washing machine. Not tried to yet as I am scared I will ruin it, but I tend to avoid dry clean only pieces as much as I can because of the whole stress of going to the dry cleaners, every time I need to get a piece cleaned.
