    The Injoy Living Podcast - Lessons in the wrong direction

    Episode details: injoyliving.ca/lessons-in-the-wrong-direction

    Imagine how easy life could be if we just allowed ourselves to flow with our intuition? Every day we are being guided internally to make decisions, take a certain direction, change directions and make changes. The information is there and it's clear but we tend to not hear it or ignore it because it feels scary.

    🤯 What if this doesn't work out?
    🤯  What if I make a mistake?
    🤯  What if it's scary and messy?
    🤯  What if I feel even worse?

    These questions end up stagnating our growth because constantly worrying if we are going the right way, will never lead us where we're meant to be. What I've learned is that my most important decisions felt like the wrong ones in the moment. Most of the risks I've taken have had less than 0 guarantees. Almost every time I've followed my gut I've been scared out of my mind. BUT!! Every single time these decisions have brought me to where I was meant to go next, helped me grow exactly how I needed to and landed me in a much better place. This has been my philosophy for as long as I can remember:

    "The Actions You Are Not Willing To Take or The Decisions You Are Not Willing To Make, Are The Ones That Will Change Your Life!"

    The Injoy Living Podcast - The magic in boredom.

    The Injoy Living Podcast - The magic in boredom.

    When was the last time you let yourself get bored? I mean to just sit in blank space, let your imagination run free and wait for inspiration to hit...As I thought about this this morning nostalgia took over me. I was pulled back into my childhood in moments when I would get bored. It's when I would sit in that boredom that I would get hit with a wave of inspiration or creativity and then go out into the world and experiment with my ideas. It was SO fun and refreshing. No we are ALWAYS filling space with our phones, tablets, work, computers and so on. As soon as we have nothing to do we pick up our phones (guilty ☝🏽).

    Try to remember a time when we had no phones...what would you do when you were bored?

    We underestimate the power of space as we become adults. We don't realize how much creativity we have inside of us just waiting to come out (if we would only create enough space for it to emmerge). This morning I was sitting on my back porch as the rain was getting ready to pour down with a book in one hand, coffee in the other and I was inhaling so much of life around me. It was exquisite!!! Try it and get to know a whole part of yourself that you might not have even discovered yet...the deeper layers of yourself that can be accessed in the white space you create.

    The book I'm reading that inspired this podcast is called "Essentialism" by Greg McKeowen. Take a peek here 📲 www.instagram.com/p/CEOt9UWn1uN/

    The Injoy Living Podcast - You can't force clarity.

    The Injoy Living Podcast - You can't force clarity.

    Where are the control freaks??? Come one...raise your hand 🙋🏼‍♀️  Clarity is unfortunately not something we can force or control in any way and when we try to do that, we manipulate life in a way that is not meant to be. Clarity has its own schedule for arrival...its own divine timing and the more we can trust that, the easier we will flow with life. We can't do better than what life has planned for us. There is a process to everything in your life that you need to trust. If you don't have the answers now it's because you're not meant to have them. They will come when it's time for you to take action. But here's the thing, this clarity will be hard to decifer if you don't get quiet enough to hear its wisdom. Slowing down and creating space in your day is the one thing you CAN control that will help you hear and see things clearly.

    The Injoy Living Podcast - Fame is gloriLESS and why I stand by Ellen

    The Injoy Living Podcast - Fame is gloriLESS and why I stand by Ellen

    When did we forget that we are all human? Fame is something that I chased for a large part of my life but I've come to see how gloriLESS it actually is. We forget the pressure, obligations and perfectionnism that is asked of people like Ellen. Chelsea Handler talks about how bottomless fame can become in her book "Life will be the death of me". Zach Effron talks about how he really feels about Hollywood in his docu-series "Down to Earth" on Netflix. Fame really isn't that glorious!

    I truly doubt that Ellen had any intention of harming anyone. I think she was just expressing some very human emotions on days where she might have been exhausted. She is being asked everyday to show up and make us all happy. I wonder if anyone ever though of how heavy that responsibility must feel? So I think we need to give her a bit of grace. And I also think we need to redefine what kind of success we really want and WHY. The why behind where we are choosing to put our energy is so so important. Life is asking us to look deeper right now. Everything that is not longer sustainable for our health and happiness is currently crashing. We all need a rebirth and I think right now, this crash for Ellen is a gift in disguise. She deserves a little break and maybe life is just giving her the opportunity to rest and make herself happy for once!

    I hope this podcast inspires you to choose joy!

    The Injoy Living Podcast - The Dualities of This Beautiful and Messy Life We Were Given

    The Injoy Living Podcast - The Dualities of This Beautiful and Messy Life We Were Given

    We are in a constant experience of duality in our life. Experiencing the light and the dark, beautiful and challenging moments, flow and messiness! In order to grow and experience life at a deeper level, we need the challenges, the hard and dark times. I always say that breakthroughs happen in breakdowns! I think we all have the choice to live our life on the surface or to dive deep but in order to do that we need to be able to find grace in the dualities we experience AND learn to be resilient. I truly hope that this episode will inspire you to dive DEEP and use both light and dark times to your advantage to access a layer of life that will allow you to Injoy Living in a whole new way!

    How YOU doooinnnnnn? (as Joey would say)

    INJOY: https://www.injoyliving.ca/how-you-dooinnnn-as-joey-would-say

    Every day during this Pandemic I wake up wondering how my people are doing. We are all experiencing this so differently. For some it's scary, for others it's expansive and many are experiencing anxiety. Whatever is happening now just embrace it and know that this too shall pass and we are all here to support each other. I hope my words will inspire you to use this moment as an opportunity.
