This post is a bit of a PSA.
As we are all fully aware, we are given a very limited piece of time to enjoy this world (when you compare it to the timeline of all existence). It’s so easy to slip into a groove. To get busy. To cut corners. To take advantage. To just try and survive.
This week, I had a personal event that occurred that really made me realize how much some things are not worth it. Every day should be spent happy. I mean, I am not talking drunk at a party, laughing your pants off happy (that would be really hard on your liver). But I am talking about the kind of happy that when you go to bed at night you can review the day and think…”Yep, not too shabby.”
Happiness seems so elusive at times. But I believe it’s because we strive for things that are predetermined by the world around us.
Thank you Pinterest.
But in reality…Your happiness can only be determined by YOU! I think there are few steps to help you get to it, which I pretty much have to remind myself of on a daily basis.
Set REALISTIC goals.
Sounds easy, huh? It’s not. We all want MORE. It’s monster living inside us that is fed constantly from a sensory overload of EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE we go. So, step back. Reassess your goals and make sure you are setting yourself up for success.
This is not new crap, we know it. We just forget it, because the machine of life can take over.
Don’t be the “Too little, too late” person.
Whatever you do…don’t become the “Too little, too late” person. When we cut those corners, cheat time or people, we become THAT person. The person who will regret those choices.
So, take the time to…
Love those in your life.
Show them they are important.
Tell them before it’s too late.
Make yourself a priority.
Really, I have to say this?? But yes, I do. Be you! Speak up for yourself. As a woman, I feel like we make a LOT of concessions for the betterment of those around us. But, it is ok to take a stand for ourselves. So, be ok and PROUD of the fact that you have a voice.
With that being said, don’t be an ass…lol!
Find the silver lining.
Even on the worst days, there are silver linings. You just need to pause. Sometimes finding that one thing that can make you smile is all it takes to push through. So, look for it.
So, it’s Friday. Enjoy it. Take a moment for yourself. Make someone feel the value they are to you. Breath in every moment…because it’s just a blip on your timeline.
Peace out peeps.
