DONT LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR JOY | 7 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR JOY | 14 DAYS OF SELF LOVE
I Have to start by saying protect yourself. Protect your mind, your body, your soul, your heart. protect you! Honestly the last thing you want is for someone to come and try to steal or take your joy or your blessings away from you. we are on this journey of life and unfortunately not everyone has your best interest at heart so we as individuals have to make sure we are protecting ourselves and the blessing that could be coming our way. But if we are distracted with being sad or angry or not being joyful in the moment when something good has happened that's a disservice to ourselves.
I have been on this earth for 28 years and your joy and your peace are everything. When you wake up in the morning and you are joyful that is a wonderful feeling and its a feeling that you should never allow anyone to take away from you.
We have to remember when it comes to others they could have there own problems or maybe they just don't want to see you happy and joyous but it is up to us to remember that we deserve to have joy and to not allow anyone to take that away.
Here are 7 ways that I keep and protect my joy in life.
1. SAY NO
Umm there is nothing wrong with simply saying no. If you don't want to do something just say no. your not obligated to say yes or to be on someone else's time. do things in your time and Gods time and if it doesn't feel right or it doesn't bring you joy so no!
2. CUT OUT THE NEGATIVITY
Man this is a BIG ONE! Cut out the negativity in your life. If you have negative family or friends or gf, bf cut them off as quickly as possible. There's really is no reason to keep things or people ion your life that aren't going to uplift you and bring you to your best self. So if you are working a job and the environment is negative, get pout of there because I strongly think that you are what you keep around you. so if your around sad, negative people that becomes your reality.
3. DO THE THINGS YOU ENJOY NO MATTER WHAT SOMEONES OPINION IS
Living for others with never bring you joy, you will constantly be thinking what will they think. And the hard truth is people are going to think whatever they want to think. you could be successful and doing the things you love and someone will have an opinion about that you could not be following your dreams and sitting at a desk all day and people will have an opinion about that. so the best thing you can do for yourself is do what makes you happy, do the things you love. this is your life and your journey
A really simple way to keep your joy is meditation. spend a few minutes a day by yourself focusing on the positives in your life. light a candle turn on some soft meditation music and just zone out. you will start to feel so much better and lighter.
Pray is to each there own but it does help. talking to god or the universe about your problems or your day. or just asking for whatever it is your want or need helps clear your mind and pout you on a better path. it can be a quick 1 min prayer while your on your lunch break.
6. SMILE OFTEN
I've always been a person that smiles a lot. It completely transforms my mood when I'm smiling. it just makes my soul feel good. also laughing. if your ever in a bad mood put on some funny video on Youtube and watch your mood change. laughter and smiling are like the key to the soul.
7. WORRY LESS
I know this is a hard one. but just try not to worry so much. don't sweat the small stuff and don't let little things get under your skin.
