The first thing I asked myself when I woke up this morning was: “What can I do today that will bring me joy?”
You see, last night I listened to an interview with Anita Moorjani (part of the Best of Hay House World Summit 2013 free online event) that was truly inspiring and had a profound and deeply felt effect on me.
In 2006, Anita had a near death experience – I can’t even begin to explain how remarkable her story is, but you can read all about her here – and she now inspires others to see life as a gift and to live it to the fullest.
One of the subjects Anita spoke about was doing things that bring you joy each and every day. This really hit home, as I’m all too inclined to do things I think I “should” do, instead of what I really want to do.
Inspired by Anita, I have now made it my intention to do something EVERY day that brings me joy.
So, this morning, I drove down to the cliff tops near my home – yep, that’s right I felt well enough to drive today AND I’m typing this all by myself, as my neck and shoulder pain has lessened. Horray for progress!
I wandered along a narrow path on the cliff edge until I found the perfect rock to sit on. I listened to the sound of the waves, breathed in the sea air and drank in the glorious views. I even attempted a few minutes of meditation before taking lots of photos with my new camera.
I loved being out of the house, feeling free, happy and peaceful and I returned home with a big smile on my face.

Now, I’m really looking forward to tomorrow and what joy I’ll find there! 🙂
Day 263, Reason 263: Today I am so happy and grateful for my new intention to do something that brings me joy every single day. And I’m also so very grateful to Anita for the inspiration! 🙂
P.S I must rest my neck and shoulder now, but I’ll be catching up with all your kind comments as soon as possible!
