If you have read my blog for a while, you know that every once in a while I like to pull a card from My Inquiry Card Deck and present it to you as a personal check-in tool for you to use. 

These inquiry questions can be great for checking in with yourself. They can be an inspiring journaling prompt. They can be questions that spark a great conversation at the dinner table or over a glass of wine or tea with a good friend. 

Asking personal inquiry questions of ourselves encourages clarity around what's most important for us to focus on in life and growth! 

This week I pulled the card that asks: "Where Is My Joy?" 

I LOVE this question. 

What's the first thing that comes to mind for you? 
Without over thinking.....the first thing? 

Are you feeling joyful in your life? Are you feeling like you are lacking joy in life?
Are you consciously choosing to fill your life with things that bring you joy? 

What are the things that truly bring you joy?
Are you making them a priority? 

When is the last time that you did something purely for the joy of it? 

What were the things that brought you joy when you are younger, but that you have not made the time for more recently in your life? 

Who are the people that bring you joy? Are you making enough time to spend with them? 


Take some time to sit with the above questions. Journal on them. Talk about them, 

Joy is a worthy subject that we don't always pay enough attention to, especially when life is hectic and we feel like we are in survival mode! The reality is that If we put even a little more focus on joy, it makes all of the things that fill up our life feel better. It makes all of the minutes of our days feel sweeter.....and we all want & deserve that! 

So if you'd like to give yourself a little personal growth homework this week, Joy is a worthy topic to work with. Sit with the question. Journal around it. Discuss it. Listen to other responses to inspire you. 

And go do something for the pure joy of it this week! 

WIshing you joyfulness!
