What is the belief you currently have about happiness?

Are you living with the belief that when you achieve something or have something than you’ll be happy?

Recently I heard someone say when they win the lottery then they will do things they want to do. We’ve all played this game. When I am _______(successful, wealthy, own a farm, in a relationship etc) then I will be happy.

Spending plenty of time waiting for something that we are desiring yet letting it steal our happiness from the moments we currently have.

Over the years I’ve heard this story in many ways. Many times I too remember being in that same belief system.

Often people tell me they can’t wait until they have their own organic garden where they grow all their own food. The first question always have for them is are you growing anything now? Do you have a mint plant?

Before you have the garden, you can have some pots growing food. Mint is easy one to start with.

After you plant the seeds in the pots, watch them grow, water them, pick off the green caterpillar tell him to eat something else… you become quite proud of this little crop of mint.

You feel grateful for it, when others come over and you have picked some fresh leaves for tea or in water you proudly share that you grew this mint with love.

Looking at your environment how can you begin to love what you already have?

Here’s some inspiration:

  • The glasses you have tucked away that you bring out for one in a blue moon special occasions. Unpack them to celebrate the everyday.
  • Start rubbing oil into your skin and being grateful for how your body is while you are starting your health journey.
  • Wash your car and feeling grateful that it allows you to go where you need to while you save up for your dream car.
  • Begin to let out your inner child and playing more while you wait for your own children to come.
  • Take yourself out for a date knowing when the time is right the person for you will walk into your life.
  • Or you could embody rich lady behaviour which means allowing yourself to enjoy the little pleasure (box of loco love chocolates perhaps?) while you relax about money which actually allows it to come to you.

Years ago when I brought the word Wholehearted into my business offerings it’s because this word was a reminder to be wholehearted wherever I am at in my life. To enjoy what I have.

There’s a question I shared with my community recently which was: Remember when you wanted what you currently have?

There are so many things I currently have which at one time were just a dream. I am sure that’s the case for anyone.

How can you fall in love with your life now?

A simple practice which people overlook is GRATITUDE. It seems to easy so often people don’t really commit to the practice.

To fall in love with your life now is a much easier process with this daily practice. Instead of writing out three things go deeper.

Choose one thing that your grateful for and dive into five reasons why you are grateful for it.

Make it a practice you come to again and again through-out the day. Gratitude for:

  • The sun shining in the window in the morning.
  • The food that nourishes your body.
  • For nature.
  • A house to clean.

Honestly, there are unlimited things to be grateful for. Trick is to change the way you see things.

Turn your complaints into gratitude and watch your attitude for life change.

If you want more love, money, happiness in your life this practice is a magnet to those things.

The Wholehearted Community is a wonderful place to fall in love with your life while creating the life of your dreams. There is a number of classes, workbooks and meditations to support you on your own journey. For as little as $44 per month you can create a life thats authentic for you while aligning with the earth.
