“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” ~Plato
What is your definition of play and how often do you do it? Sometimes when the heart feels heavy, we can’t connect with that which brings us joy- but when we are able to manage a tiny opening into the depths of a closed heart, the light that gets into that opening helps to widen it further.
How can you rediscover your sense of joy? When was the last time you laughed a deep and hearty laugh? We humans are a tough bunch and can be attached to our drama and our stories. It is time to break free from the heaviness and let your heart be truly open! When you reconnect with Joy, you gain insight and perspective.
Here are my 3 Ways to Awaken to Your Joy!
~ Find your funny bone: Reconnect with old movies and comedies that make you laugh until your sides ache.
~Go on a walk-about: Take a walk with fresh eyes. Look at the world around you and see the new life that is emerging. Breath deep and appreciate!
~Get silly: Try skipping! It's my favorite way to bust a move. It helps me to re-connect to the inner child and feel that sense of wonder! (hint: it's great exercise too!)
This spring, awaken to the song of the Earth all around you. Celebrate Mother’s and all things maternal and feminine (men can do this too)! Capture the awakening of the creative spirit and see what blossoms within you.
Let’s continue to blossom and stay in our joyful center….

Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.
For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.
To be truthful, I've had some 'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose. I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
