We are all living our own epic life.
It will no doubt include a dramatic event, moments of happiness, a regret, mistakes, some doubts, and many many things INBETWEEN and finally our passing. It’s the IN BETWEEN where joy can be found.
If your feeling stressed, anxious or depressed today; it may be all engrossing; or it may be something you’re experiencing IN BETWEEN something else. When you want to shift out of these feelings it’s natural to look for a distraction or a fix.
I’m not aware of any one aged 1 month, 8, 16, 21, 35, 43, 50, 65, 82, 89, or 103 who doesn’t stop having this life pleasure / pain conundrum going back and forth; in fact the release from “something” is often what drives addiction.
We all want to distress from something its natural! So what do you love doing?
A walk or a run. (Exercise it lifts you)
Being with animals (Connection it comforts you)
Listening to Music. (It resonates with your emotions)
Catching up with a friend (Social contact cheers you or gives you another perspective)
Being in touch with nature (It's relaxing and calming)
Having some sort of fun, whatever that means to you. (It energises you)
Engaging a Hobby. (It identifies you as unique)
During these INBETWEEN pleasure moments hopefully you have forgotton you were hurting, powerless, not able to solve a problem, angry, sad or withdrawn. The feelings may still be there but during unmeasured increments you have come back to “life” and distracted yourself. Overtime these little progressive changes lead you back to your whole self.
Joy is the pathway to live streaming wellbeing.Read More
