Life is hard. We are being dragged in every direction before we even get out of bed. Not very often do we get these sweet moments where we feel really true to our selves. You know the feeling, that euphoric light love feeling where you are just completely.....happy.
Unfortunately as we get older we often lose sight of that person and that feeling. The good news is it's never gone and if you want you can have it back as often as possible. It's very important to tap into this as often as possible. This is the secret of truly happy and successful people. You will be a better wife, husband, mother, friend, daughter, niece, neighbour, coworker..etc.
So how do you do it?
There are a number of ways and it will vary from person to person. I find meditation helps, Florence Welsch suggests you dance the devil off your back, and visulization can also help. But take it slow, there is no room for being hard on yourself here. That's conteractive.
So if you want to try you can simply close your eyes for a moment and breathe. Consciously follow your breath down to your belly and back up and think of one of the happiest moments in your life. The birth of your daughter? That moment at the cottage last summer when you woke up early and went out to the dock and really felt the morning, the evening your husband proposed, that time you stepped off the plane in a foreign country and felt this is it.
This seriously only takes maybe 30 seconds. You can pause and do this in the lineup at the grocery store. Or in the washroom after you wash your hands before you come back out or even right before you fall asleep.
Soon you will see this changes such as easier smiles, a happier heart, becoming more understanding and more yourself! (and don't get too excited now but you will also start to crave more!) Pausing will become wonderfully addictive. You will take the time to love yourself and then the skys the limit to your happiness!
So come on people "stop dragging that horse around!"
Please please please let me know if you tried this or what you think of it! I am dying to know!
Love and Hugs
