Follow Your Bliss

Are you making space in your life for joy?

Are you doing what your heart seriously yearns for?

If not, why not? The way to create a memorable and happy life is to follow your bliss, but first let go of all the obstacles in your path. Here's how...

# Do you feel selfish for thinking about putting your own happiness first? Maybe you've grown with the belief that you should sacrifice your own happiness for someone or something else? Realize that when you stride out to live a joyful life, doing what you love, you have more to give other people and other causes because you have greater personal joy and fulfilment. That is definitely a win-win for all sides!

# Are you afraid of doing the things that bring you happiness? Perhaps the prospect of change is scary. Perhaps doing what you love requires you to step up, do things that feel abit uncomfortable for a while, or seem challenging. You know the saying: face your fear and do it anyway. Try it. You'll feel awesome!

# Don't think you have time to do what you love? Well, that's just a limiting belief. Time is more flexible than we realize. Re-organize your day. Make what you love a priority. If it's really what you want, you'll make time for it.

# Not really sure what makes you feel blissful? Tune in with yourself. What fills you with joy? What would make you leap out of bed in the morning? What do you dream about? If you really don't know what makes your heart sing, perhaps you haven't found it yet. Explore! Test yourself. Jump out of those comfort zones.

# Are you procrastinating? It's easy to put off your dreams until tomorrow, but you're also putting off your innate need for joy. Following your bliss requires effort, commitment, change, and elements of the unknown. As soon as you start the journey, you begin to live - and I mean REALLY live!

What is holding you back from living a life of joy? Are you sabotaging your happiness? When you let go of the obstacles and limitations, you are free to travel into the adventure of living.

So, what are you waiting for?

Follow your bliss and live joyfully.
