I Wish I Had Known
I don't know about you, but when I was growing up the adults in my life didn't sit me down and tell me a lot of things. It was kind of a watch and learn as you go sort of thing. No one sat me down and said, this is why we are here, our purpose, and this is what living a meaningful life looks like.
So, up until a few years ago I really didn't understand any of this. I was in a never ending loop of trying to be "successful" and make more and more money. I was 100% bought into the idea of bigger equals better. I thought that if I continued to strive for more and more I would be happy. Boy was I wrong. What ended up happening was that I was getting more stressed out and more miserable.
Don't get me wrong, I like nice things too, but to what end? When is enough, enough?
By a fluke, over 3 years ago, I discovered what brings me joy and it was a little exercise that only takes 5 minutes a day. See I had experienced joy a few times in my life and I wondered how I could create it intentionally, but I had no clue. There is a formula to this joy thing and creating it intentionally. And, a crazy story. I would love to tell you the whole thing and get you started on your path to JOY. Let's hop on a chat and I will tell you all about it. Got time next week?
