My mantra this year is 'follow the joy' (as I wrote about here) but it's harder than you might think - one, because we're not used to living a life where joy dictates our behaviours, maybe because we're scared of happiness (as I pondered upon the other day) or because it doesn't feel serious and adult enough. Secondly, it's tricky because we may look to find things that are fun but neglect to notice the things that already exist but isn't bringing joy - may it be a boyfriend that doesn't prioritise you or a date that doesn't get back to you, a friend who isn't very supportive or a daily task we do because it's expected by others.
Be with someone who brings you joy and make love enjoyable, surround yourself with friends who lift your spirit, do tasks that make sense to you and keep you inspired.
Life is hard enough without adding hardship by the choices you make and can control.
Your life, your choice!
