It was in that moment I began my new normal of requiring joy and happiness to be my guide; not pressure and stress to inspire me to take action. Now, three weeks later, I find myself protecting my joy and happiness like a gatekeeper to a treasure. I no longer tolerate my old habits that kept me stuck, people who I tolerated just to be nice, and activities that really did not align with my joy.
My tolerations list sits front and center on my goals list as I look at it every day eliminating several each week feeling liberated and more dignified and calmer than ever. Now, I have to work at it. It’s not easy; but it’s deeply imbedded in my soul where I notice immediately when someone or something does not FEEL right because it’s not in alignment with my joy and happiness.
See if you can resonate with the new mantra I live by; “Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.”
Do you have a transformational travel experience to share where you returned home with a new normal and life changed for the better as a result? Do share ☺
