“Joy is the most vulnerable emotion we experience. And if you cannot tolerate joy, what you do is you start dress rehearsing tragedy.”Brene Brown
Ya’ll, when I read this quote it rocked me. Brene Brown has been researching the effects of shame for years, and has the numbers to back this quote up. It shook me because I can see why it’s true.
How often do we put a cap on our joy simply because we are too unfamiliar with feeling it for expended periods of time. How often do great things happen in our lives and all the while, we are waiting for the other shoe to drop. Brene Brown calls that feeling, foreboding joy.
So, instead of spending one more moment rehearsing tragedy, let’s learn to strengthen the muscles required to sit in abundant amounts of JOY!
The phrase “romanticizing your life” often gets a bad wrap. I think it’s because many believe romanticizing ones life is close friends with toxic positivity. I couldn’t disagree more.
Romanticizing life doesn’t mean embracing toxic positivity, but intentionally seeking joy and celebrating ones life in the midst of it all.
So together, in this blog post, we are going to explore 5 WAYS TO ROMANTICIZE YOUR LIFE!
Increase your level of consciousness by noticing the “small things” in the present moment. Revel in the cup of coffee you have in the morning. Notice how the sun feels on your skin. Take slow and intentional bites of your meal and try to taste as many flavors as you can. Enjoy!
This is a big one! Whether you’re gloriously single or happily cuffed, being comfortable doing things alone is essential component of romanticizing your life. Go on a walk in the park. Take yourself out to brunch and order something you’ve never tried before. Stroll around an art museum while listening to your favorite playlist and writing down everything that inspires you.
Just like magic, images and videos have a way of taking up back in time. They remind us of the adventures we’ve had, risks we’ve taken and resons why this life is such a gift. Full your camera roll with priceless memories of people, places and experiences you cherish.
I’m always giving polaroids as gifts, tucking them in birthday cards and sprinkling them all over my apartment and in my books. It was the best present from my uncle a year or so ago. I pack it in my suitcase when I travel now!
You have the power to write and rewrite the narrative of your life experiences. You have the power to turn setbacks into comebakcs. Simply ask yourself “What can this moment teach me?” Then, if you’re up for it, share those lessons with us in real-time. Tell your story with unconditional love and grace.
Your life is a MARVEL & this is your movie.
You are an artist. You were created to create! We all are. Romanticize your life by creating something new. Write your book. Launch your biz. Start a podcast. Learn to watercolor. Spend time writing down your passions, dreams and ideas. Then, take some creative risks! You have this one life. Make your mark!
It’s time to fall completely, utterly, and incandescently in love with your life (where are all my Pride & Prejudice fans at?).
