Choose you. What’s the first thing you think when you read this?
That’s selfish. I already do choose me. I am not even sure what she’s talking about. I don’t have time. I don’t need to. That’s rubbish!
Any of those ring true for you?
I thought I was choosing me, but when I really took a good look at it, I actually put everyone else before me. I would drop anything in a heartbeat for those I loved. I would put things that were my passions and soul callings to the side to help others. I was brilliant at self-sacrifice.
I thought it was selfish and uncaring it I didn’t.
I mean, they need me. They need you too, right? I mean the dishes have to get done, the kids need driving, and the partner needs help. You have to help them. It’s your job.
Or, is it?
Let’s get really real here. Do you really need to drop everything for everyone else? How about putting what matters to you in the lead, at times? I am not suggesting dropping your responsibilities. I am just urging you to realize this is your life and you only have a certain number of days here. So . . .
Let’s make it matter.
Leave your mark. Sing. Be happy. Go skinny-dipping. Play with your kids. Write that book. Paint that painting. Play your piano. Hug more. Eat the cake—guilt free.
You can, CHOOSE YOU, and still be there for others, live your truth and be fulfilled. Be carefree and easy about it.
- The state or feeling of being pleased or gratified.
- A source of enjoyment or delight: The graceful skaters were a pleasure to watch.
- Amusement, diversion, or worldly enjoyment.
- Sensual gratification or indulgence.
- One’s preference or wish.
Yes, please! I’ll have some of that!
I’m not talking about sexual pleasure. I’m talking about a deep internal, soul kind of pleasure. Although, the sexual kind is rather amazing too. 😛
The point I want to make here is about this personal, soul pleasure. The kind that makes you feel excited, complete, loved, joy filled and connected.
And why it is, that we cut ourselves off from allowing ourselves to feel good.
What’s up with that? Why do we feel guilty about feeling good and how the heck can we get back into guilt free pleasure?
Do you ever have that sense that you feel TOO good, or that things have been going well for a little too long, so something bad is just bound to happen? Like you are due for some negative, because you have had your allotted does of positive?
Can’t we enjoy without having that sense it will slip away, creep in?
We are so programmed to feel guilty about feeling good—that we assume only a certain amount of the good can last. Like we are only allotted a certain amount of good things before it crashes.
Struggle is praised and enjoying is seen as selfish. How often do we place on a pedestal those that work their fingers to the bone? Yuk!
No thank you. I don’t want some of that.
I choose to believe, and base my reality on the belief that we can have our cake and eat it too. We can have gain without pain. We can be curious and not kill the cat.
We choose our thoughts, our feelings and our reactions. And through these choices, we choose our life, how it feels, all the components. Get good at making conscious dialed in choices, based on you, not someone else and you will open doors and create magic that will rock your world.
I am living proof.
We can write any script we want for our lives. We can be content, fulfilled, overjoyed, for extended periods of time and not be punished for it.
I believe we deserve to feel good, to chase our dreams, to live the exact life we want.
But if we are running around, either consciously or unconsciously (most times its unconsciously) thinking negative thoughts and having negative feelings a majority of the time, we wont be happy and will attract more of that energy to us. Its manifesting 101, right?
We get what we predominantly thing about and feel.
If we hold a strong belief that its wrong to feel really good, then yes, eventually, we will most likely attract something bad to confirm our belief.
I really want to live life full throttle and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to throw away those belief that no longer serve my higher purpose of truly enjoying life. I choose to not blindly accept what others say, but think for myself and come up with my own way of doing life.
I spent far too many years in a state of disallowing my power , passion and deepest truth to surface. I spent years batting battles that couldn’t be won and stressing about things that didn’t need stressing about.
Now, I choose the fast track. I choose the fast track to abundance, success, love, power from a feminine space, and guilt free pleasure.
Sound good? Join me. It’s as easy as a choice. Then the rest will fall into place. Choose to believe it.
That little saying “ just do it” there’s a reason why its so catchy. It’s a truth.
Just do it is giving ourselves guilt-free permission to go there, to be who we want to be and to do what we want to do, again, guilt free.
Your Choice Du Jour—
- Bask in the moments of pleasure you experience in your life.
- When you are in those moments, choose to stay longer there. Don’t pull yourself away.
- Fully embrace it—whether its sounds in nature, the laugh of your kids, painting, playing music, a hug, stargazing, a massage, reading…just allow yourself to be with it for a longer than your nomal amount of time.
- If guilt comes up, just allow it. Trying to push away uncomfortable feelings is pointless. Allow it, acknowledge it, be with it.
- Then CHOOSE to replace it with a better feeling or thought. What you allow yourself to think and feel is a choice.
Choose to fully embrace pleasure—guilt free.
