When we are faced with a loss, sometimes we hesitate to take that first step forward back out into the world. In order to protect ourselves, we limit our emotions so we can control the sadness or the hurt. But sometimes,it means we lose out our chance for happiness as well. What if I told you that you can take a small stretch, one small step towards happy by getting your giddy on?
When was the last time you felt giddy?
I mean REALLY giddy, silly, letting yourself go, like the first time you fell in love, or ate ice-cream on a bright shiny day kind of giddy? I am talking about THAT kind of doubling over laughing hard kind of giddy.
Often, it is much easier to get our fear and worry on. Today, can you give fear and worry a voice? Take a few moments and write a letter from fear or worry’s point of view. What is it fear or worry is telling you? Most likely, fear and worry is there to “protect” you from the hurt. Then take a moment and write a letter back in response to fear or worry. Tell them thank you, and you’ve appreciated the help, now you are going to give them a new role in your life, by helping you get your mojo, your spunk, your giddy back.
It can be something small. I planted sunflower seeds in my organic veggie garden last weekend. A few days ago, 6 of them came up:) For not having a green thumb, this makes me feel giddy! My inner 4 year old is as happy as my 4 year old daughter when we water the garden. As we approach the weekend, think about how you can get your giddy on…
helping you get back to happy, one sunflower at a time!
