Joy Equation

Day 6 of the Joy Challenge: Commit to Flourishing

It’s a common trait of women — of the care-taking role we’re conditioned to embrace — to put everyone’s needs ahead of your own. How can I help you? How can I support you? How can I take care of you?

Striving to be all things to all people is exhausting.

Why don’t you try asking yourself these very same questions for a change — How can I help myself? How can I support myself? How can I take care of myself?

The answer is commitment. Commitment to your own personal fulfillment and flourishing. Commitment with your whole heart. Commitment with your full sense of self.

You can commit in many forms — with time, energy or money, with your willingness to clash with society or the persona your partner/friends/family expect you to be, with your sacred rituals that remind you who you are and what you love.

Why? The journey becomes easier when you have found your people.

Day 2 of the Joy Challenge: Connect With Yourself

If you stripped down to the very base of yourself – if we took away your job, your bank account, your schooling, your relationship status – who would you be?

Do you have any clue?

Answering this question can be incredibly hard. I get it, love.

You wear so many masks during your day and try so hard to please other people, that your own desires, preferences and unique strengths get overlooked. And pretty soon, you forget what those desires, preferences and unique strengths even are!

Day 1 of the Joy Challenge : Develop Fierce Self-Love

STEP ONE: DEVELOP FIERCE SELF-LOVE

Joyful living starts with loving yourself. And there’s no way around it, babe.
