What shifts in your life when you make your own happiness a central priority in creating your life? What I notice in my clients and myself is that a sense of feeling really, really good arises at a body level. The powerful question - what would make me happy right now? - brings an even deeper sense of well-being. The inner child feels cared for. Reacting to other people's behaviours lessens as there is an independence that results from truly living life in this way. Others actually benefit more as such roles as victim, martyr, persecutor or controller slip away. Personal power comes back home to our own hearts where it belongs.
I make my happiness a central priority in my life. I am worthy of this. I keep the question, "What would make me happy in this moment?" a focus of my day.
