Do what gives you joy
I’m Qatana and I’m a workaholic. From earliest childhood I was deeply entrained to believe in the importance of work. Work defines your identity. Work justifies your existence. If you’re not working, you’re not worthwhile.
Throughout the ages travelers by land and sailors by sea have used the North Star to find their way. You have a North Star of your own. Your North Star is joy.
When you go toward joy, you can be confident that you are headed in the right direction. Joy leads you to what you love, what gives you deep satisfaction, what’s aligned with your soul’s purpose.
No matter how worthy your goal, it’s never wise to drive yourself so hard that you no longer nourish your Self. It is as important to focus on what nourishes you as it is to focus
on your goal.
Even a worthy goal can become a problem, if along the way you fail to support yourself. If achieving that goal becomes the only thing you are focused on, you can get out of touch with your needs.
You nourish yourself when you reconnect with people who know you and know how to support you. Don’t worry about how long it’s been. If there’s someone you’d like to talk with, give them a call or send them a text. You could even do it the old fashioned way and send them a card telling them what they mean to you. Now, that would be novel!
I have always loved giving Inner Wisdom workshops. I’ve been doing them for years. Magical things happen when people come together in a circle. Sharing with one another on the level of Spirit nourishes us all.
The work goes deep in the supportive and loving container created by the group.
