My main job in life is to ensure my happiness - so that in turn I can be a contribution to my family, friends and community. After all - I can only be the best person if I am brimming with self love, compassion for myself and others and have a sense that everything is well for myself and others too. There is a huge element of trust that needs to be embodied. And finally gratitude.
When emotions of fear, regret, anger, sadness, envy, disappointment, shame, jealousy or unjustness enfold my being - I become useless and de-energized.
Luckily- I have learned to use my FEELINGS as a compass to direct my thoughts which in turn translate into actions which create my experiences in life. In any part of that cycle - feelings, thoughts or actions - I get to interrupt and redirect to be more joyous.

Let's rise above looking to others for our BLiSS and TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY for our own existence.
