What does happiness, really, really feel like ? Danielle LaPorte makes us ask ourselves these questions, in an attempt to find our calling, our work, our ideal life. (in her Strategy of Desire worksheet)
What does that feel like to have our perfect world ? And then ask some more, If we want to feel happy, clever, enigmatic, ‘what does it feel like to be enigmatic’?
Reminds me that we have to ‘ask and we shall receive’.
It is about asking the right questions. And having the courage to hear the answers. Life is so much about courage, courage to speak up, courage to listen, courage to be true.
As I asked myself, what does it feel like ‘ to be happy ‘. I had a few answers, ‘ awesome, incredible, love, to be in the moment’. They didn’t quite seem perfect.
And then I had to write, about gratitude.
Gratitude for a true friend, who amazes and humbles me by her honesty, her kindness and her integrity to be true. By her courage to strive to be more, and her ability to stay grounded and real, wild and free. Grateful that she can see my spirit and truly know me.
Grateful for the incredible learning that whilst I feel I am being judged and not understood, I am in fact, also judging.
Grateful for the reminder to believe in Universal Timing, life happens exactly on time, and its magical. All we have to do is see.
Grateful to see a lovely wedding, full or regalia , ornate with delicate lavender , pink and white flowers, music, emotion, and a beautiful moon.
Grateful to be brought out of sadness when I saw small boys stand behind one another and pray in a park .
Grateful to be reminded that I am happiest when I am amazed by life, by its splendour, its beauty, its wisdom, by the inspirations, the aspirations , the timeless tales of its people. To be touched, inspired, in awe.
To watch, to capture, to share. What an amazing world !!
Grateful to be amazed by life, again.
