Remembering your 'joy'
Throughout life we take on roles of responsibility
an elder sibling
a younger sibling
the middle child
the parent, mother, father
the main income earner
the main caregiver
a manager, supervisor, employee
Lots of roles define what we do and how we behave.
Does the role(s) you hold bring you 'joy'?
Joy can be found in simple things, 'celebrating a special memory', 'spending quiet time with someone you care about, 'treating yourself to a favourite food', 'being with nature, emersed in music, sitting in the environment'....
Why does 'joy' matter?
It reminds us of who we are
It restores balance
It helps us cope with what is going on in our lives, and gives us the strength to carry on OR,
change what we do next
It lets you take control of what is happening to you
How are you remembering to bring 'joy' back into your life?
