Have a heart-to-heart with yourself.
The past couple years I’ve made great strides in making sure I “love what I do and do what I love.” It hasn’t always been easy and I’ve spent a great deal of time doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing rather than following my heart and doing what I truly enjoyed.
Finding your happy sounds easier than it is. Think about it…when was the last time you really had a heart to heart conversation with yourself?
Doing what you love and finding those things that really make you happy takes some soul-searching. I’ve found that simplifying my life was half the battle, the other half was making sure I made time for those things that make me smile.
Do you want to find your happy? Take a few minutes are work on these few points:
- Make a list of everything in life that makes you smile.
My list looks like this:
Spending a day away with my hubby, flowers, walking in nature, hanging laundry, mowing grass, a clean house, a full pantry, the sunshine, a warm fire, baking, pretty things, a good book, living simple and spending time with the Lord.
- From those things what are your top five?
Mine would be:
Spending time with the Lord, a day away with hubby, walking in nature, flowers, and finding ways to live simple.
- Dig deep into yourself and answer how each of those things makes you feel.
My answers would be:
Spending time with the Lord – Calm and at peace
A day away with hubby – In love
Walking in nature – Energized
Flowers – Amazed
Finding ways to live simple – In control
- The next step is finding time in your life to implement YOUR happy!
