What Do I Really Want To Do?

This quote came to me today and it resonated with another part of my soul. It feels like the angel sending me this message understands that I have struggled with answering this question and asked it in a very different way. Starting with a gentle preamble that encourages me to give myself grace and forgiveness for not knowing the answer, it shut the pesky inner voice of negative self-reprisal right down. Then it directed me to have a conversation with myself. Well, maybe it is directing me to ask the question to the universe and then listen. So, what is my Joy?

First, am I asking what brings me joy or what is joy to me? I feel the latter is easier to answer and that I should start there. I get joy from helping others, explaining things I feel I know, watching a good mystery, learning something new, love, hugs, sharing knowledge, sharing in general, playing with materials and watching them transform into something new, getting compliments on what I do. I’m sure there is much more, including simple things like the sound of wind in the leaves and rain on a metal roof, fluffy clouds floating by, dragonflies & butterflies, and flowers too. I jet joy from a stimulating conversation and sharing a tasty meal I’ve prepared with loved ones. Sometimes I get joy from seeing the happiness of others and the silly antics of small animals. I have a lot of things that give me joy and that fills me with gratitude. That feel joyful too!

Well, I’m not sure this answers any question I have about my purpose or my direction, but it does bring me back to a central and very often repeated teaching of Abraham-Hicks; There’s nothing more important that to feel joy. It is the key to all our desires and the manifesting of them. Focus on feeling happy and joyful in everything you do and you will be joyful. I feel a little foolish at how obvious this statement seems: To be happy, just be happy.” How can it be that simple?

Confucius:

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

Marc Anthony:

“Always do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.”

Mark Twain:

“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

LL Cool J:

Do what you love; you’ll be better at it. It sounds pretty simple, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t get this one right away.

Forget that Twain is a blatant plagiarist, he was a wise one; And Oh how can you not love what LL Cool J has to say! He’s right you know. The things we love the most are easier for us to do because he feel joy in doing them and then attract more of that joy to us. So, do what brings you the most joy, always look for what brings you joy in everything you do, and bring on that avalanche of joyful things. I really enjoyed sharing this musing with you. I wish you an abundance of joy.

  1. I love doing so many things! In my introductionary message I say I’m an artist, writer, traveller, wild west and ghost nut intrigued by science and a renaissance soul with a potty sense of humour. All true, but i love art, writing and the wild west – oh, and travel- all at once! That’s what they say about renaissance souls – so many passions we can’t pick just one!
