Hey Groovy Friend!
Opening my heart to JOY isn’t always beautiful or easy.
CONFESSION: I have struggled with and stressed myself out with finding JOY in my life, relationships, and career because of my TYPE A overachieving mindset that makes JOY into a massive big ASS deal.
Last year I stressed myself out, tripped, and fell into what I call the SUPERSIZE JOY HOLE and couldn’t get out using my old JOY definition and expectations. So I spent last spring, summer, and fall opening my heart and redefining JOY by looking closely with curiosity at how it was showing up in my COVID-19 pandemic life. It wasn’t always easy or beautiful. It made me show up VULNERABLE which isn’t a favorite state of being for my recovering Type A control freak/overachiever and inner critic archetypes.
Through it all, I learned how powerful it is to release the mindset and habit of supersizing JOY. To be honest, I am still releasing them. It’s a process! That’s why I created the Thriving Mindfully Community’s Summer of Self-Care, a three-month celebration that encourages and me and YOU to reclaim our birthright of JOY as a mindful self-care practice.
