We all want to feel good.

It is a natural drive.

To increase the amount of time we feel wonderful.

So why do we have such a hard time doing it?

It is amazing how what we want so badly is so hard for us to hold.

For we all have a limit on how long we can feel good.

Is it a day, a week or a month?

Perhaps even shorter, like an hour or a few minutes?

When we take a moment to stop and look at how long we can allow ourselves to feel good we can learn a lot.

Our beliefs around feeling good are deep and ingrained.

Do we deserve to feel?

Have we earned the right to feel good?

What have we done to help others to feel good?

It is truly fascinating how many conditions we put on just feeling good where we are.

How we must somehow ear the right or deserve the right to feel good instead of just allowing it to be okay.

Why do we need to work at feeling good?

This whole notion of having to earn or deserve feeling good is actually something manmade and not natural.

When we look at babies that have not yet been conditioned by society, they laugh and smile for no reason at all.

Feeling good is our natural state of being.

It is not something to work at or create.

Of course, for those of us who have experienced trauma and extreme pain, it may not feel that way.

Because the trauma and pain were not natural to begin with, so they affect our natural feelings.

Feeling good is actually not something to work at.

It is just something to allow.

And the truly interesting thing is that the more we allow it, the more great stuff comes our way.

So feeling good creates more opportunity for us to feel good.

The better we feel on a daily basis the more experiences and situations come to us that support our feeling good.

And the opposite is also true.

The worse we feel the more bad feeling stuff comes our way.

So in the end, the more we focus on feeling good and allowing that feeling to continue for as long as we can, supports us having the life we have always wanted.

Letting go of all the voices on our head and all the stories we have made about why we should not feel good is our deep work.

When we allow ourselves to feel good for no reason at all, or just for being alive, we have truly achieved something great.

So what do you need to release in order to feel good more of the time?

Are there stories you have created about why not to feel good that you want to change?
