So many of you have lost the sense of joy and fun in your lives. If this is the case for you, and you would like to move back into greater enjoyment in your life, we suggest you ask yourself the following questions…
What brought you joy as a child? Why did you stop? Are there elements of that same activity you can pick up again now? When did you decide being an adult meant having no fun? Is that true? What brings you joy now? What interests you? Have you connected with your inner child lately? Are they neglected? What lightness and joy would they like to bring to the forefront of your life?
What do you think will happen if you lighten up? What responsibilities do you take on unnecessarily that others could easily do? Do you automatically say no to everything? What one activity could you bring into your life that would be just about your enjoyment? What class have you always wanted to take? What place have you always wanted to visit? When you go to the book store or the library, what section do you linger in the longest? Are you doing that activity in your life or putting it off for some unknown future time?
It is through your interests, your passions, and your expansion that your soul shimmers and shines with satisfaction. It is also through your enjoyment that you find yourself in alignment with Source energy. Love yourself enough to bring back those elements to your life, or if you do not know what they are yet love yourself enough to find out. Your joyful self expression serves you, others, and your planet, much better than self sacrifice and denial ever will. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
