Joy is like a one night stand.

I’d love for you to join the tribe of Wishcasters. Every Wednesday we flock to our blogs, we answer a question, and then we all visit each other and leave a comment like “As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.” It’s a great way to connect, to share, and to bring our wishes one step closer to manifesting. Today we are asked: What do you wish to jump into?

I wish to jump into joy.

You see, I have many relationships. For example, for a long time Anxiety and I were best friends, attached at the hip we were. We still hang out from time to time, but not as much as we used to. Depression and I have one of those relationships where you break up and then get back together a few months later, you know the type. We get together less often now, but he’s still around. Happiness and I are getting acquainted, hanging out more and more, I quite like her. Joy however…

Joy is like a one night stand.

We get together, have a great time, and then joy leaves. I don’t get too attached, after all, what’s the point? It won’t stay.

Honestly, I never ask it to, never expect it to. I don’t allow myself to immerse myself in that relationship. I want to change that. I still distance myself from “happy” emotions. It’s still new to me, still something that I am discovering. A path that is overgrown with foliage but one I am excited to try to navigate. I’m still afraid to let those emotions really get to me, afraid that Depression and Anxiety will show up and snatch Happiness and Joy away.

I wish to jump into joy, jump into emotions and allow myself to have an experience with them, feel them fully, immerse myself in them, and not be afraid of them.

A live-in-the-moment kinda thing.

Happy wishing!
