Well, I thought I was going to be writing about something different but today it is about how to bring joy. And when I say bring joy, what I mean is bring joy to yourself first of all, and in that way you can bring joy to everyone else, and dare I say, to the world?
This is because is so much crazy stuff going on in the world today, and a huge focus is being put on the negative.
If you look at the news, tv, facebook, everywhere you look, there is so much attention being given to the bad stuff.
Now I’m not denying that what has happened recently in SO many places is not good. And I know that some people are very angry, scared, annoyed…. the list goes on.
Indeed, you may have very valid reasons for feeling all of these emotions about what is going on now, and perhaps what it is triggering in you.
But are we going to give in to the darkness?
Are we going to let them win?
Are we going to let them take the goodness out of our lives?
I believe that what we need is more light, more happiness and more joy.
If we don’t bring more of this into our lives, and keep operating from a place of fear, anger or sadness, then the dark side wins.
I know that people will have a history and a back story that is connecting with what has happened, and I’m not saying that you can just wipe that clean.
But seriously, isn’t it time to give yourself a break from all of this stuff? Being afraid, angry, feeling guilt or shame or whatever it is – it’s just exhausting. And I don’t believe that that is what life is about.
And there are times when we can choose to look at positive messages rather than the negative things happening.
I was reading an interview with the author, Judith Kerr who is in her 80s. She said that sometimes when the news gets too grim, she switches over to the Simpsons.
Let me be clear, I am not minimising the effect of the things that have gone on. But isn’t it time to start giving the positive news the same space in our heads as the negative?
So, why not take some time to choose to allow a little happiness, bring joy into your life, whatever that means.
It could be looking at cat videos on facebook, going for a walk, dancing in the kitchen, cooking a meal – whatever floats your boat.
But it is important, that you take some time to have joy and happiness in your life now.
We all need more joy in our lives.
This is important for all of us so please take some time to do this.
How one person can bring joy
Have a look at this story about a guy from a small town in Italy who had a vision, and made it happen. He certainly brought joy to himself, to David Grohl and many others, including me.
Play the video really loudly and do some rocking!
I’ve even attached the words for you if you want to sing along. I love the first line:
‘Run and tell all of the angels’
Definitely made me feel great, made me feel joy and I got to do some head banging!
I think the angels will be listening if you do this! Well, they’re always listening.
