Uncertainty keeps me on my toes, keeps me searching for more, wondering what the next turn will be. It gives you that strange feeling in your gut, brings a little heartache and pain sometimes and while I don’t want to feel that way every day, it certainly lets me know I’m living.
The most meaningful thing I can do with my life is to make the most of my days and share that with others. By enriching someone else’s life or lives, I am enriching my own!
Today, I need to divide my attention into sections. I need to focus on my work and once I leave, I need to focus on me; on what will bring me joy, improve my life, help me be the best I can because if I’m good, I have a greater capacity to shift my focus another day on someone else who may need it.
I am thankful for my abundance of choices. I have so many choices, freedoms and options I am able to make on a daily basis from what’s for lunch, what TV show am I going to watch, to who will I vote for and what will I fight for.
I am forever on a mission, although what that means can change as life evolves. In general, my life goal is to make a positive and lasting difference in my community and surroundings. I want to leave this earth knowing I’ve done something that matters, regardless of whether I’m remembered.
A few years ago, I gave myself a mission to give back in some way at least once every month for a year- this could include volunteering, donating, or helping a friend in need. The joy and self fulfillment I received that year came in bounds. I truly enjoy giving what I can when I can.
Recently, I’ve asked the people around me for their support as I start my journey of self-improvement. I suffered a significant loss this year and at times it’s been difficult to get my head out of the sad space. I’ve decided to channel my energies into building healthier and better body. They are providing me with encouragement and support, keeping me accountable, and even taking some of the journey with me. I asked, I recieved. ❤
I am slowly but surely working on my physical wellbeing by being more mindful of what I eat, taking longer walks, becoming more active and stretching and strengthening my body. If I take better care of myself, I will have a greater capacity to care more for others.
I love the sound of a smooth fan running at night. The sound of my sweet dog’s sigh of relief as he snuggles into bed and gets extra comfortable. Music in the background when I am working, cleaning, driving or doing chores to keep my attitude happy and uplifted.
I may have an adjusted outlook if I believed everything was happening simply for me to learn, however, it feels like a stretch for me to believe this. We may always have opportunities to learn from a situation but there are too many terrible, horrendous and unjust things happening in this world for me to believe they are only a learning opportunity.
There are many downfalls to our social media age but also so many wonderful things come from it. I’ve seen from a distance people I was friends with years ago blossoming, achieving goals and making good changes in their lives – some of which I questioned if the ability was there. Seeing these grow into wonderful human beings proves inspirational as I know I can also continue to grow, achieve my own personal goals and continue making positive changes.
I am fortunate to be loved my an abundance of beautiful friends and family; people who share their support and gratitude for me. I am fortunate to have found a wonderful, sweet, lovable fur baby. I am fortunate for good health and opportunities to live a fulfilling life.
