It is common to get bogged down by the seemingly endless responsibilities in life and feel consumed by just getting through each day. We can get caught up in dealing with the day-to-day grind of supporting children and aging parents, work, social media, keeping yourself and others in your life healthy, dealing with stuck emotions that you can’t seem to control (or the loose emotions of others), and of course, financial responsibilities. “Adulting” can be hard and time consuming. Before you know it, life can feel drained of joy and play time. We forget the wonder and simplicity of hanging out and just being, because there are so many things to do. We aren’t feeling the open-hearted “Wheeee!” in our lives as much as we might.

In the midst of it all, it is vitally important to connect with the “Wheeee!” in your life daily, whether it is touching base with an old friend, time in your garden, watching a cloud with joy in your heart, enjoying a snuggle with your pet, or even just a lemon wedge in your water (I personally love that from time to time). Even self-pleasure can be a nice option to release tension and to open meridians throughout your body. Right now my “Wheeee!” is a neighbor’s dog barking, raindrops on our garden turning everything green, and birds singing their hearts out.

In order to find your “Wheeee!”, to keep your heart open, and to find your “I have happy,” you might consider finding yourself easily amused by life and all that it offers. Watching yourself and others with amusement instead of being annoyed is a choice and it is truly a delightful way to live. For example, instead of being annoyed at a family member’s angry outburst, being able to keep your heart open to see that their display of anger is really their way of saying, “I am afraid.” Imagine how freeing it would be to not take their anger personally and to move forward with open-hearted inspiration instead. Please know, this isn’t about being a doormat and receiving the abuse of others. Once you name truth you can bring light to it and act out of integrity instead of losing yourself in the emotional drama of the events before you.

In my past, I knew Love through fear, and that wasn’t Love. Chances are that you have too. Be gentle and kind with yourself as you open and learn to navigate life. 

Do you need help? I’m an Intuitive Counselor who works with bright sensitive people who are struggling with relationships at home or work, loneliness or feelings of depression and want to make the pain go away.  Step by step, I will help you release blocks to living your authentic life, free of issues and emotional charges that have been holding you back. I believe by courageously facing the confusion and pain, you can free yourself and live a life you love. As one client recently shared, 

“Rita cuts through the crap, but does it with compassion and loving kindness.”

You don’t have to do this alone. If inspired, please call (515) 313-1156 to schedule your phone session today.

Thank you for the Love that you are. Now go find your “Wheeee!”. I’d love to hear what brings you joy in your life.
