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?
Peace, Erin "joy creator" Mac
