Small fears may simply be a thought that crosses my mind and I’m able to see it for what it is, a small reminder that my focus is coming from a space of lack. Now the bigger fears that visit from time to time, those require more dedicated refocusing along with self-evaluation of whether I am ‘stuffing’ the fear or moving through it.
Having fearful (negative) feelings is part of living and allows us to see what we don’t want in our lives in order to give more attention to what we do want. See them, feel them, and then allow them to dissolve and transform into a life of deeper love, laughter and happiness. One step at a time towards living your highest self.
For the next week I invite you to step into happiness by:
Being okay with any fear based thought (sadness, anger, being overwhelmed, etc.) and moving through it with gentleness and compassion for yourself.
Find humor in what you are dealing with as laughter truly is the best medicine.
Start and end your day in gratitude. Be grateful for the smallest things that we often take for granted – a warm bed, breathing on your own, your loved ones, etc.
Mostly, my wish for you to realize that happiness is always available to help you celebrate life bigger and better and also to lessen any sorrow you face. You simply being you is a reason to step into deeper happiness in your life.
Until next time, why step into happiness when you can dance into it. Queue the music…it’s time to happy dance!
