You know that feeling of being a kid – where you’re playful and silly and like you don’t have a care in the world?
How close do you feel to having that right now?
If you’re like half the population, even though technically we’re in “The Season,” the holidays tend to bring up more judgement than joy. Something about stressful plans, family tensions and that “where-did-this-year-go-and-
If you find yourself marinating in self-judgement or even worse, you’re putting on a happy face to keep the peace and you’re exhausted from pretending, then I want to share with you a simple strategy to authentically having more joy now.
Because all that judgement and pretending will not only keep you feeling alone and disconnected, but it will eventually drive you back to addictions, obsessions and more self-sabotaging patterns.
And that will create even more judgement and pretending! No bueno.
So to stop that cycle in its tracks and get on the path of true, authentic joy, check it out in this quick video I made for you called How To Go From Judgement To Joy.
In it, I talk about the secret to shifting out of your negative head trip and accessing your natural, childlike exuberance.
One of my clients, Sara, who implemented this strategy consistently, along with a handful of other simple tools, not only got free from her food addiction and lost 40lbs, but she also started having more fun, being more adventurous, feeling more connected, having deeper, more meaningful relationships and feeling more confident.
When I met Sara just a few short months earlier she was the total opposite.
She felt trapped by self-judgement and saddened by how much joy she was missing out on in her life. “I’m not aligned with who I know myself to be,” she confessed. “I feel shitty. I’m a shell of who I really am. I feel like I’m hiding out in life.”
Sara had that not enough/too much thing I see with 99% of the women I work with – not enough of the right things and too much of the wrong ones.
She was also so critical of her body that she “no-showed” for some important family functions, which stuck her with tons of guilt, and she put off planning her family’s vacations because she didn’t want others to judge the way she looked.
All she wanted was to be carefree and to be ok just being herself, but she didn’t even know what that would be like because she had never felt it before.
That’s why, it warmed my heart so much when Sara checked in last week to share she was already gearing up for her second big family adventure trip of the year.
“I let go of my shitty judgements!” she beamed. “I now talk to my body like it’s an honored creation. I listen to my body and have so much gratitude and appreciation for it.”
Sara had a complete turnaround in her relationship with herself, her body and the world around her. What proved to be a game-changer for Sara was when she learned how to sustain her shift out of her negative thinking patterns and realign with the truth of who she really is.
