Follow the Joy

Hey Soul Friend,

Do you have big goals? Goals that require focus and determination? Goals you will do anything to make it happen?

So do I.

In order to complete my goals, I used to map out a schedule. It dictated how and when I would finish things. While having a plan is a great tool, what I realized was I would ignore how I was feeling when I did the task.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Sometimes you need to push through your feelings and get things done.

But when I loosened the reigns (a bit) and didn’t follow my schedule so tightly, and prioritized feeling good while I worked on my to-do list, my end product was always better!

What I’m learning is that by surrendering - surrendering how I want things to be, surrendering when I do things - and instead follow the joy (of doing things that feel good), I get better results.

To me, that’s another confirmation that the Universe always has the very best in store for me - and I know it does for you too!

Is there something you’ve been struggling with? Pushing to make it happen? If so, try handing it over to the Universe. Chase the things that feel good. You might just be amazed at the results!

If you give this a shot, I’d love to know how it turned out for you!

Soulfully yours,
MB
