If we stop qualifying the conditions that will make us happy, we can actually choose to be in a constant state of happiness. We can make the choice to make happiness unconditional.
Energy grows when you choose to keep your heart open.
How to keep the heart open?
When you feel brain keeps telling you
"what you don't enjoy" --turn away from it.
That voice that constantly reminds you of what you don't like is an energy zapper.
It is like a passive-aggressive friend that you must either get rid of, or regulate exposure to.
Notice, relax and release everything.
And then start your litany of gratefulness.
And I mean everything.
Scrape all the nooks and crannies of your life for things to be thankful for.
Do not waste a morsel of blessing.
The results are amazing.
Focus on what you want.
"We all have a bag. We all pack differently. Some of us are traveling light. Some of us are secret hoarders who've never parted with a memory in our lives. I think we are all called to figure out how to carry our bag to the best of our ability, how to unpack it, and how to face the mess. I think part of growing up is learning how to sit down on the floor with all your things and figuring out what to take with you and what to leave behind."Hannah Brencher
I just discovered that the word for what I have been painstakingly building and creating for Gabi’s rabbit for the past 8 years is called a warren.
Today I spent hours cleaning and reconfiguring our rabbit's habitat.
It is a long and tedious process because I secure each box and cardboard tunnel with floral wire. So removing; and cleaning is part 1; redesigning his maze is part 2;
Securing each piece is part 3.
The amazing thing is, once I put Chubs aka Bitbit back in his enclosure, he runs around and tests each and every feature.
It's almost as if he wants me to see how much he appreciates all my work.
Made me tear up.
