IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU

IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU

How many times in your childhood or adolescence did you hear, or do you still hear the phrase ‘It’s not about you’

In actual fact It’s is all about you. How you are feeling. How you are coping. What you are about.

Our natural state of being is to be in joy. But it’s not always that easy to access this state.

Are you living your life purpose? What does this feel like? This has been described as ‘When your present moments begin to feel perfect’

When you live on purpose, your relationship with time changes dramatically. You’ll no longer be looking for happiness somewhere in the future. You’ll stop saying to yourself, “Once X happens then I’ll be where I want to be. Then I’ll be happy.” Instead you will look to your present and say, “This is exactly where I want to be right now… and nowhere else. Nothing could be more perfect than this precise moment.”

The emotion that accompanies this state is joy. Joy results from total acceptance of your present moment. Whenever you project your thoughts away from the present moment and seek happiness in another time or place, you leave joy behind. When issues arise in your life, problems with relationships, friendships, family, worries, money or health, low mood, depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, bullying, workplace, school, social isolation. The list goes on. When issues arise, they block joy from your present moment. It is a constant uphill battle to try to reconnect with joy. You might even forget what this looks like.

By assessing your current emotional state and comparing it to the state of joy, you can get a sense of your distance from this state. The more powerless you feel, the further you are from joy.

There are many tools and techniques that reduce down the worries and blocks standing in your way. Counselling does help you reconnect with your natural joyful path. It is all about you.
