I am on a quest to maintain and nurture the most glorious life possible. Despite the cliché, over the years I have learnt to realise that your external experience; whilst being highly influential, can only manipulate your joy so much. Happiness is a choice. It’s a habit, a discipline, a life style.
It’s the old chestnut of enjoying the journey and not seeking the destination or learning to dance in rain rather than waiting for the storm to pass.
It can be challenging and can quite often require attention and awareness. Like many things however, when actively applied consistently, it becomes a habit and a way of life.
As life works so wonderfully in cycles I find that sometimes I can master this objective and other times I fall into the depths of despair, but that makes me human right?
All I can truly do is continue to infiltrate my life, my thoughts and my surroundings with things that help me to feel good, whilst trust that with an internal and external injection of fabulous that it will become easy. So what if we all make an effort to do this?
What if we all make a choice to choose the positive thought over the negative one? To make a solution rather than give energy and momentum to the problem. What if we all do more of what we love and put love in all that we do? What if we find a truly elegant way of conveying our feelings and intentions without causing offence or placing blame? We are definitely in a time where people are increasingly aware of how powerful this is but are we actually making it our lifestyle yet?
I recently read through Jim Rohn:
“Lifestyle means designing ways to live uniquely. It’s a skill to be mastered, not a condition to be pursued. Lifestyle is finding new ways to bring joy, pleasure, excitement and substance into our lives and into the lives of those we care for while we are working on our goals, not once we have achieved them.”
I know this is something many of us do naturally and experience at times, but what would happen if we all did it intentionally and consciously all the time? Would we live lives more outstanding than ones we lead today? Is it feasible? I’d say utterly, incredibly, completely and massively.
So my bid a Healed Soles is simple. I’m going to do my darndest to live, breathe and be this lifestyle. What’s more, I want to share it all with you.
Happiness is an all rounder. It's enjoying love, sharing with family and friends, reaching your goals, doing your bit, producing something, inspiring those around you, looking after your body, your mind and your spirit and then finding more fun, creative and effective ways of doing it.
So let’s do it together. Let’s build momentum, support and energy into productive positivity and see how great we can truly be.
