The Tuesday Two © – February 21, 2023

Each Tuesday I will deliver to you two things that are relevant to wellness.

1. Joy Ride – Have you blocked yourself from feeling joy?  Allowing yourself to feel joy is actually an act of self-love, and it is up to you to ensure that you do allow it. Often, we put everyone’s needs before our own and a joyful life doesn’t make the To-Do list. Iris Murdoch a novelist said “One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats”  That is a concept I like and why I included Gratitude & Joy in my daily planner. Have you tried it yet?  What do you think?  I would love to hear your feedback and any suggested changes.

If your struggling to find joy, here is an article that might help.

2. The Gap – I know I’ve talked about making space in your schedule before – but I need reminding of this.  It has been a crazy start to 2023 and I have started to use “busy” as a badge of honour again.  When I heard myself say it the other day, I cringed inside.  It is not how I want to be.  I love this quote “The truth will set you free, but first it will make you mad” Gloria Steinem.  I don’t purposely fill everyday with activity, honest I don’t, or maybe the truth is that I feel guilty if I’m not doing something.  What is a good gap for me?  Well even 30 minutes to have a cup of tea in silence would likely do the trick. I really enjoy looking through photos while I do that.  Those family memories make me smile. How about you?  What is your gap?
