Today we’re talking allowing yourself to see the beauty in the world and experiencing pleasure.
I feel this is a *big* piece to enjoying yourself in this lifetime and really that’s what this game of life is about, creating your own personal heaven here on Earth in a joyful way.
It’s so much easier and less frazzling on your mind and nervous system to create from a place of love, wholeness, completeness, connection and flow than it is from scarcity, lack, contractedness and fear.
Just put it on your credit card and your future-self will pay for it when the money comes rolling in…
I think we’ve all heard this one and this is one I fell for time and time again to the point where I racked up £12k (approximately $15k USD) on my personal credit card and I honestly felt like I was drowning as I was waking-up in the middle of the night with panic attacks wondering, “How the f*ck am I going to pay this off”.
You know what though, I did.
Of course I did. 😜
I put on my big girl pants, took responsibility for the choices and decisions I made and took some badass boss b*tch action.
But while I was drowning in this situation I couldn’t wake up and smell the roses.
I couldn’t appreciate the beauty around me as I was living in a tiny flat in the concrete jungle with no garden.
My only saving grace was I had one tree outside my kitchen window but what I didn’t realise is I longed to be in nature.
And I mean proper nature.
You know hills and valleys and forests and fields as far as the eye can see.
It was only once that dreaded C word, COVID hit that it caused me to re-evaluate, and I needed to get the hell out of there.
Once we made the leap, of faith, to move west and live in a rural village, beauty awakened within me and my soul again.
The watching of a sunset, the happening upon a deer, a bat flying in my face, this happened twice, watching the seasons change and baby lambs leaping in the fields and avoiding pheasants on single country lanes.
The thing is some people find their beauty in art, others in jewellery or a poem or laughing so hard with a loved one you start crying.
So I invite you no matter where you are in life right now to find the beauty around you and marvel at it.
Celebrate and appreciate it as with that comes pleasure and then new ideas and inspiration and a gratitude for all that is in this beautiful, pleasure-filled world.
