Are you limiting your joy?

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” 
― Mary Oliver




The grind

There are so many things that require our attention. And many of these things feel like “work” rather than pleasure. And after doing all of these things, many of us feel too tired to take time for the things that feel really good. Or we are so depleted that even things that could bring us joy and pleasure end up feeling like more work (relationships, being social, parenting, being creative, sex).

Are you limiting your joy?

I know life can be hard. I know there is a lot that is demanding you attention. And I know joy can get lost in the shuffle.

The first thing to do is acknowledge that you are worthy of joy! Experiencing more joy will enrich your life!

And then you make a plan to commit to joy even when you are busy. You find small ways to feel joy throughout your day. You put your attention on joy. You look for joy. You build joy into your life.

One of my favorite ways to build more and more joy is to keep a Happiness Jar. I was inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert talking about her happiness jar. Every evening I write down the happiest part of my day and I put it in my jar. Here is a picture of my jar from today.

Do you see that it is overflowing? It’s halfway through 2016 and I have already had this much joy! I’ve had more than that because these are just the happiest parts of my day! This is a low effort and high payoff practice. I highly recommend starting your own jar and tracking how you feel.

If you need a little help giving yourself permission for joy and pleasure, I created a free 4-page e-book, Permission for Pleasure.

Sensuous Woman

Are you connected to your true sensual nature?

Do you even know what that means?

As women it’s easy to be pulled in many directions. You may wear many hats in your life. You may have many roles.

And maybe you have compartmentalized parts of yourself. If you are a mom you may be used to prioritizing others’ needs. If you work outside of the home, you may have shut off that sensual part of yourself so you are taken seriously in the workplace. In general, woman are bombarded with messages about who or how they should be.

Be sexy – But not too sexy!

Take care of yourself – but don’t be selfish!

Be a lady – but not too sensitive.

There are so many ideas about how you SHOULD be. I’m more interested in who YOU ARE!

When you slow down and connect to yourself and your body – what do you want? What feels good? What lights you up? What makes you feel beautiful? What turns you on? What brings you joy or makes you want to dance?

Treat Your Partner Like Your Lover

I know things don’t feel the same as they did when you first started your relationship. As time goes on, relationships change. They change in many wonderful ways, and sometimes they feel less exciting, less intimate, less sexy.

I made a three-minute video talking about one small way you can shift your relationship.

Take a moment. Imagine you were preparing for your lover. How would you proceed? How would your routine change? How would your energy change? How would your intention or perception shift?

Our language is powerful. How you talk about your relationship or your partner, can affect how you feel. What you call your partner, lover, spouse, mate, beloved, significant other, or better half can influence how you feel about them.

Try it.

For a week, a weekend or even day, treat your partner like you would treat your lover. Notice how you feel and notice how your lover responds to you.
