Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.” ~Swedish Proverb
Hello all… this is Daniel Wiafe, your personal motivational life coach… back with some positive motivation & inspiration… to help you kick-start your day in the right way… and bring you one step closer to living your best life ever!
Today… make it your goal to focus on strengthening your personal relationships… and the people that are really close to you.
Now, I don’t mean try to strengthen EVERY relationship… that would simply be impossible. But focus on the one, possibly two people in your life… who are the most important people in your life.
This will definitely be your husband or your wife or your fiancee… and can include siblings, parents and very, very close friends who are in your life right now… and are completely for you and stand behind you no matter what.
Now — once you have identified that special person (or people)… make it your intent to share your joy with them.
This means that anytime something positive happens to you… or whenever you are feeling happy or overjoyed… share it with that person. Trust me, if that person is truly for you… they will share in your joy and happiness!
Doing this small task will double your joy! Right now as I write this post, I’m on vacation in Las Vegas with my beautiful wife Melinda. I’ve been to Vegas multiple times before in the past… and it is truly a FABULOUS city for the tourist… but the times I’ve come here by myself (for business conferences)… it really sucked being here by myself. 😉
But when I travel to fun destinations and places with my wife… or even other friends for that matter… my joy is doubled… because I am sharing the fun, the joy and the happy experiences with others.
This also means on the flip-side of things… that whenever times go bad or rough for you… and you need to vent and complain… you have a person you can go to and vent your frustrations.
That person will give you a friendly ear to listen to you… and may give you helpful words of advice or friendly, constructive criticism to help you get on the right track.
Think about times in your past when you were mad… or when you were pissed off… and you didn’t have anyone around you who you felt comfortable enough with to “share” your frustrations with. It didn’t feel to good, did it?
But when you have someone to share your feelings with when something bad goes down in your life… that can help to lift off and alleviate the weight of that stress off of your shoulders.
NOTE: But please… never make it a habit to be that person who is ALWAYS negative. No one likes a person like that. Always seek to be positive… even in the bad situations. And then in the times when you are overcome with negative emotions that you can’t handle by yourself… seek the aid of others.
Why share my joy or share my feelings of frustrations with others? Because no matter who we are… or where we come from… we are all social creatures. We NEED each other’s presence… like a fish needs water to survive.
Don’t be an “island”… meaning you are far apart from everybody else. Life is much more enjoyable when we are able to share in our happier moments with the people that we love and care about.
When others are in need of a friend… or to have someone share in their joy with them… or to have someone be their rock to lean on in their own personal times of despair… return the favor by being there for that person.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post on, How to Share Your Joy!
