💕What brings you joy? 😁⁣⠀ With the Netflix mariekondo hit series "Tidying up" we've got this new movement asking "What brings you Joy?" Sometimes we need to be reminded that we should be prioritizing quality over quantity. Another thing too is, just because other people are all about something, doesn't mean you have to be.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Theo and Louie's furry faces bring me joy. And so does this blueberry smoothie. I know it's simple, I know it's silly, but I look forward to my routines. ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Do you need to do a quick audit to see if you're carrying unnecessary baggage?⁣⠀ Are there obligations you self impose that don't really bring value to your life?⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ wellnesscoach foodblogger safespace mytribe mypeople selflove lifecoach corevalues limitingbeliefs mindfullness wellnessjourney frenchiesofinstagram cityofkitchener kwfoodies girlbosslife notfancy mindsetcoach knowyourworth detoxyourlife sundayvibes identity gratefulforyou whatbringsyoujoy furbabies blueberrysmoothie lifeaudit⁣⠀ ⁣⠀

Start close in, don't take the second step or the third, start with the first thing close in, the step you don't want to take. -David Whyte Today these words of David Whyte were the inspiration for my classes. An offering to stay close in our heart. An offering to stay close to the moment Spring is offering you. An offering to let the place close in lead you to what brings you JOY Often what we discover close in may be unresolved emotions, an urging to leap, to let go, to embrace. We may discover a truth that desires to be known, or spoken, or lived. We may discover the longing to take a risk, to feel more fully, to embrace silence in a new way What we discover is often resisted. We want to take that second or third or even final step in the process. Yet, we notice that step we ‘don’t want to take’, the one we are refusing, is the one close to our heart, is where we are being guided again and again Today, may we have trust and faith in that place ‘close in’. On this beautiful Spring day, may we let it begin to lead us toward what brings you JOY photo credit KRK Photos muditayoga bejoyyoga davidwhyte startclosein sundaypractice springday fulfilled whatbringsyoujoy movetowardjoy slcyogastudio empoweryoga poetry yogainspiration listentoyourheart love bejoy everydayjoy

Who’s been netflix-binging Kon-mari method, or Marie Kondo…? OMG! So good I’ve released so many items in my closet, it’s totally freeing. So, I also started to Marie Kondo my business…same questions to ask, "Does it bring you joy?" . I highly recommend asking yourself for the daily tasks that you are involved with, or even the many ‘projects’ you are doing in and out of your business… . Are you doing it to be ‘busy’ and distract yourself from life? (you know who you are…) OR is it ACTUALLY bringing you deep joy? . If not, what can you eliminate, delegate, or pause? . We’ve seen this with our own clients every single time. Either business increases, some other project takes off, or personal life happiness goes up, like big time So, what will you be letting go of today?And what brings you Joy in life?

What brings you JOY? If I asked you to list all the things that brought you feelings of joy however simple or grand they may be. What would they be? Maybe you could do this exercise now ✍️ 📝 And then take a look at it. And ask yourself how many of those things are in your life regularly? Sometimes we boycott things that bring us joy because we think it’s not ‘cool’ to do it, or because society tells you otherwise. Sometimes we feel bad for doing these things and hear that nagging voice of ‘am I being selfish?’ 🤯 Sometimes what brings us joy is actually in the really simple things, and we forget that those things bring us the most joy. 😊 Quite often things that brought us joy 5/10 years ago might be very different to what brings us joy now. Asking the question. ‘Will it bring me joy?’ Can often be a really useful tool. It can help guide you when you are not sure whether to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to something. Instead of conjuring up a list of pro’s and con’s, just cut the crap and make it super duper simple. It’s helped me BIG time! 👐 Listening to our emotions and not always needing to have an answer straight away, but quite simply asking yourself, ‘is this serving me right NOW?’ And if it’s not then move away. So back to the original question, What brings you joy? I’d love to hear your top 5 Here are mine ⤵️ . ➰ Cuddles in bed with my boys 🧔🏻👶🐾💙 . ➰ Getting out for a walk in the FRESH countryside. 🍃 . ➰ Hanging out with likeminded high vibe conscious goddesses 🌟🧞‍♀️ . ➰ Eating really good vegan chocolate 🍫😋 . ➰ The work that I do literally lights me up soo much 🤩😍 . joy lightsmeup simplethings selflovecoach birthcoach womensempowerment positivity whatbringsyoujoy consciousliving growth

California had a little piece of my heart, but now has almost all of it 🥰 (working on it) since my nephew was born. So in love with the lil nugget. * What I have felt in this trip goes beyond words. Not for its beauty and cool things to do (that’s awesome, yes) but just for being there in the moment so much has changed inside me. * “Even if you’re afraid of the change, you’re ready for it”.

In my happy place. Movement doesn’t have to be a punishment or smashing your body. It can simply be the act of moving. Getting out of your mind and into your body. I actually have no idea how far I swam and most of it (if I’m honest it was all of it😂) was with fins but it was so good just to move my body. Be intentional. Be kind to yourself. Exercise is not a punishment. joythroughmovement healthybody healthymind bekindtoyourself whatbringsyoujoy

Today is national fragrance day 🤷🏻‍♀️. Have you sat next to someone who is wearing too much perfume and an instant headache comes on 🙋🏻‍♀️. Have you searched what fragrance means? What it can do to our bodies? I love making my own perfumes that can help support my body verses putting it in stress. whatbringsyoujoy whatisyourwhy themoreyouknow

What brings you joy ☕ This was a question I asked in circle the other day - I asked my dear sisters to think of something other than , family or pets. I loved hearing their responses and would love to hear yours! For me a coffee in bed made with love by my husband brings me joy. I can sit and read or gaze out the window with nowhere to be but in that moment. I love starting my day like this ☕☕☕ I would love to know what Brings you joy?

Meyerminute here Wanting to bring some intention to your Fridaythinking about your home, your spaces and what brings YOU joy! Are there a few areas that collect junk? And are there a few spaces that collect Joy? Treasure and spend time in the joyous spaces - maybe the one with the sun shining through or where you curl up in your new green wingback chair or the kitchen island where your family will gather tonight to laugh and love on each other! And then in our near future - let’s work on getting rid of the things in our home that don’t make us happy. Let’s simplify! Let’s spring clean. Let’s buy a few new things to get that not so “happy place” up and running to its full potential! These spaces ARE the hardest, aren’t they They are complicated. Because most likely these spaces work hardthey work hard at balance, function and your available time. They work harder at looking you in the eye reminding you there is work to be done here! And they are great at hanging out for yearstapping their toes at you. You know the space, don’tcha! interiordesignwithintention whatbringsyoujoy removethethings

Hello! There’s been quite a few more followers join our little space here on Instagram since we started so we wanted to re-introduce ourselves. I’m Gabi, the younger sister. There’s two of us here on Oh Boy Mama. We’re sisters and best friends. In the spirit of Marie Kondo, I thought I’d share 5 things that bring me joy: 1. My family. My husband and my (almost) 11 month old son are my whole world and to keep things simple, they share a name 😂 2. A clean kitchen. I can’t continue my day if I see my stove is dirty I probably clean it twice a day. 3. COFFEE. However, I drink decaf 😂 which I’ve been told makes me a true coffee lover since I’m just drinking it for the taste. 4. Long showers. Idk if you saw Dani’s post about clearing your head, but, this is my thinking spot, praying spot, and my minute of calm. 5. Being with people. I’ve come to learn that I cannot be alone. If I find myself alone for too long I usually call my mom 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 Now, what brings you joy?! Drop it in the comments, let’s spread joy around today 😘☀️

Our two 🐈 🐈 Caramel and Potato are rescued cats. We have now had them for 2 years and they bring us so much happiness. It’s amazing how much joy you can get from animals in the house. In the beginning omg! They were driving me crazy. They were so naughty and used to honestly be climbing up my curtains 😂😂😂But now they are more calm and are a huge part of our family. It’s amazing how animals can sense if somebody is unhappy in the house. Then they will stay close by and make sure you are okay. feelingblessed brothers cats calming cute naughty funny healing teenagersintyehouse mum catlife animalsinthehouse mumlife yogateacher joy whatbringsyoujoy whatbringsyoujoyinyourlife aromatherapist beautherapist

🌝🌸🌞Happy JOYOUS Spring Equinox & Full Moon in Libra My Lightworker Lovelies! (And Happy Fall Equinox for my beautiful Southern Hemisphere friends!) This is the third (and final) Super Moon of 2019, which means every full moon we’ve had so far this year has been a Super Moon! Wow! _ 🌝🌸🌞Today in the Spring Equinox, the light hours in the day are equally balanced with the dark. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, during the Spring Equinox we celebrate coming out of the hibernation of winter (a season of death) and coming into a season of rebirth, new life, fertility, beauty and JOY! _ 🌝🌸🌞We are still in this rather intense mercury retrograde portal which maybe amplified by the energies of a Super Moon (emotions can tend to run higher during super moons). So be mindful (no need to fear) that there are these cosmic energies at play and most importantly, remember to continuously return to the breath throughout the day, esp in any moment that feels intense. _ 🌝🌸🌞 A beautiful and Super simple practice for today’s Spring Super Moon in Libra, is to focus on JOY. The Elven Starseed Council and I invite you to contemplate who or what brings you the most joy in your life? We invite you to spend time tonight under the illumination of the full moon, journaling on who or what brings you JOY. _ 🌝🌸🌞Moving forward, we invite you to do one thing everyday just for the of JOY it, with no other intent other than for the fact that it makes you feel JOYFUL when you do it. (Again it can be as simple as gazing up at the moon, stopping to smell a flower or listening to a favorite song). _ 🌝🌸🌞As we move out of winter and into spring, the energies of the season, will also naturally support cultivating a practice of focusing on the core frequency of JOY that runs throughout all of life. JOY is more than an emotion, like LOVE and COMPASSION, it’s an energetic state of BEING, that in truth is not definable by words. As you align with JOY, you see life more through the Soul / Higher Self’s perspective, that emanates an invincible undercurrent of JOY throughout all of life’s ups and downs and through the rainbow 🌈spectrum of life’s emotions and myriad of experiences. Aho

Thoughts on special occasions If you didn't know, my husband and I own bulldogpipeandcigar and I've overheard him saying, "I make the cigar the special occasion". He says something to the order of "What good is a cigar if you never smoke it?" I have these really pretty crane Spode plates that I never used, probably saving them for that "special occasion." In theme with what my husband was saying, what good are these plates if I never use them? My mom gifted them to me and there are 3 of the 4 left (🤷 to the 4th). They are so delightful and their design brings me joy. Don't save for another day what you can delight in today! Tomorrow may not provide the opportunity and sometimes, life itself is the special occasion! Waffles with your on saturday morning can be a special occasion. A spontaneous salad shared with a friend can be a special occasion. What's your special occasion today?

Self care is so important for anyone, but even more so for mothers. You can’t give and give and give. If you don’t take the time to fill your own cup you will be running on fumes before you know it. Taking care of your needs and even wants is not selfish or luxurious, it is a necessity. It will not only help you feel better but also help you take better care of your . Some of my personal favorites include getting outside for a walk in the fresh air, practicing yoga and reading a good book.

Happy International Day of Happiness itallveganwithfriends are most happy when we spend time with animals, if we all just open our eyes a little more to those around us, happiness would be easier to achieve 💚 “When animals express their feelings they pour out like water from a spout. Animals' emotions are raw, unfiltered, and uncontrolled. Their joy is the purest and most contagious of joys and their grief the deepest and most devastating. Their passions bring us to our knees in delight and sorrow” Marc Bekoff Animals are more than ever a test of our character, of mankind's capacity for empathy and for decent, honorable conduct and faithful stewardship. We are called to treat them with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don't; because they all stand unequal and powerless before us - Matthew Scully internationaldayofhappiness animalsmakemehappy itallveganwithfriends vegan veganforanimals happinessquotes happiness achievinghappiness marcbekoff matthewscully joy whatbringsyoujoy govegan

I am by NO MEANS a nutrition expert or dietician but for those of you curious as to how I’m losing weight; I think the best way is to Marie Kondo your diet. Pick some healthy-ish stuff THAT BRING YOU JOY and stick to it. And also, just keep it simple. The more crazy you get with your stuff the more you get cluttered and distracted. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It just has to be something that you can do over a long period of time. If you are miserable in your diet, you probably won’t last. I actually look forward to eating these things. Also, there is always a lesser calorie version of the same thing. Also, turning off comments for this one because this is not an invitation for food advice on what I eat :) the whole point is to show that you should focus on progress not perfection. joy mariekondo whatbringsyoujoy loveyourself weightlossjourney gymlife americanabroad

What is it for you? Have you ever wondered if you stopped doing what you’re supposed to be doing and started doing what you want to be doing what that would look like? What if you stopped wondering about it and just did it people talk about the fact that this is not a dress rehearsal this is the real thing you’re on the main stage now what makes your heart beat faster what calls to you if there is no part of your life that resonates with the part of you that feels joy then stop and at least think about that just at least think about that. I think too often we go through our lives doing what we think is expected and I’m not suggesting that we all walk out the door and never come back because life has become a little monotonous we all have to be there a little bit of that in our lives but if it is our whole existence if nothing resonates with who we are inside maybe that is worth examining. thinksboutit whatcallstoyou whatbringsyoujoy thelifeunexamined createyourlife whoareyou whatmakesyouwanttosingdancelaugh wealldeservealittlelaughter marchtoyourowndrummer lifeisnotadressrehearsal bepresent stopandthink taketimetodaydream closeyoureyesandimagine createyourreality thetimeisnow soberlivingshouldbejoyous celebratethecleansoberlifeyoudeserve mindbodyspiritconnection
