How many times a day are you doing things you “should” do? I should do this….I should do that...I should...I should...I should. Drudging through the tasks on our To Do list with hopes and dreams we will have some down time after we “get it all done”. Putting off joy, happiness and creative pleasure until we have accomplished enough. I get it. I've been there!
But what is enough? How do you define it? Is it when every single thing on the list is complete? Is it on Sunday afternoon when you allow yourself some down time before the start of yet another productive week? Is it when you break down into tears of exhaustion because the work never ends and the list never gets any shorter?
What would it take for you to give yourself permission to do less of your should’s and do more of what brings your soul true joy? How would your life be different if you allowed yourself to do more of what inspires you, brings you joy, and moves you closer to your dreams?
Living from the whispers and desires of your soul does not mean you have to discount or ignore your To Do list. There will always be things we have to attend to that feel mundane and tedious. Yet are necessary for the practical function of our daily lives.
So how do we make space for pleasure and joy while still taking care of the necessities of our life? Here are a few things you can try that will help you start to live more fully from your soul. Bringing more creativity, joy and happiness to your life.
What if you were to start right now? If you could pick one thing to do today that would make your soul deliriously happy, one thing that is exactly what you WANT to do because it inspires you and feels good, what will you do?
