What if you had reacted differently to that one bad thing that has thrown you off in the morning and your whole day had turned out great?

Oct 19, 2023

But even when you resolve to respond differently next time, it just feels so easy to go on autopilot and respond the same way so that, again, that one bad moment turns into an entire bad day.

Thankfully there are many things that we can do on autopilot, otherwise we would be totally overwhelmed by all the decisions we’d have to make, but sometimes our autopilot systems kicks in a tad too often and we find ourselves looking back at our own too quick reactions and wonder: Will I ever be able to react differently?

It’s like somewhere along the way all these automatic patterns that keep repeating over and over again have thrown you off center and although you’re aware of that and willing to find your center, you just don’t know how.

Imagine being centered as being a tree that is firmly rooted in the ground. When a wind or a storm comes you shake your leaves, maybe even lose some, but you never lose your center and fall over.

Think about a small situation which throws off your entire day. For me it was always when my coworkers used MY cup even though I told them that I don’t want them to use it. Having the tools that I have now, I could have stayed centered. Sure my leaves still would have been ruffled, but it wouldn’t have knocked me over.  

It’s totally okay to be annoyed by a situation like this. The key lies in not getting so upset by it that you let it influence the rest of your day. Instead of a rush reaction, you stay calm, let out your feelings if you want and then you move on. Isn’t that so relieving?

There’s this wonderful quote by Virginia Woolf: “I am rooted but I flow”.

That is exactly the feeling that you’ll create when you go through Joy Academy. Joy Academy is a one year journey where you are guided to find what’s “missing” from your already pretty good life so that you can experience more joy and lightness every single day.

You will be guided to (re)connect with your inner voice and to find out what you really want - in small and big terms. With this you will be able to gain the tools that YOU need in order to be firmly rooted and centered whilst floating and dancing in the flow of life.

I’ve heard so often from past Joy Academy members that it’s the very little things that made a big difference in their lives. Not sweating over small potatoes and quickly losing their temper but standing above that and putting all the energy that is thereby set free into doing, being, and feeling what they really love.

You can have that too!
