Many years ago, in a beautiful window of personal insight, I realised that I could curate my life to include what I wanted more of – and leave out what I didn’t want.
Wow, thank you me. I’ll do something with that. And so I went about curating my life. Choosing what I wanted and leaving out what I didn’t.
I didn’t always have the clarity in the moment to choose. Sometimes I would be so enmeshed in things that I couldn’t see clearly at the time. But as soon as I knew, I could choose. Was it in or out?
It was a conscious choice to decide what went in and what was left out. And a daily commitment to that.
When I learnt that I could choose how I wanted to feel in any given moment. That really took my curated life to the next level!
Not only could I include what I wanted more of and leave out what I didn’t, but I could also choose how I wanted to feel every moment of my life.
So… how did I want to feel?
Holy moly, what a marvellous question. How did I want to feel in life????
I wasn’t very well going to let anyone else decide this. So I chose.
I chose joyful. I chose peaceful. And I chose clear.
Those qualities and feelings helped me to feel really whole and uplifted. It helped make doing harder things easier. Growth happened with more ease because of the joy, peace and clarity I brought with me in any given moment. It was magic.
But it wasn’t a given. I didn’t wake up feeling that way. I had to choose it. And choose it, I did. Cause why would I want to feel any other way?
So if you’ve never been asked, I ask you.
HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL IN LIFE?
I’m putting together an entire concert based on what we want more of in life, and how we want to feel. Imbuing the frequencies of those qualities in my set list and then I’ll be sharing them with the world.
You can be sure I’ll be bringing joy, peace, clarity and magic… what would you like me to bring about FOR YOU?
