Healing flower of the day:
Joy heightens our energy. And whatever problems we may be facing in life, they are always solved by a higher energy.
So if you find yourself thinking "I need to deal with this issue first before I can allow myself time for something fun", think again.
Often, when we start our day with something from our to do list because we "want to get it over with", so that we then can enjoy doing whatever we feel like, what follows in actuality is that the to dos just get more until there's nothing left of the day. (It really makes sense when you think about it: where we put our energy, more energy follows). When we start our day with something we enjoy, it elevates our energy level, and at some point we find ourselves breezing through the to dos effortlessly, maintaining that high energy level. It's like we're being carried through them (Sometimes the to dos even disappear, taking care of themselves.) So what is it that you really want to do, that you are putting off right now?
Go do it, even if it's just for a little bit. The time you dedicate to it matters less than that you actually give it some space and your full attention at all.
