After a particularly hard kick in the pants by life she reassessed her priorities. She chose love, laughter, happiness and friendship. – Queenisms™
Life has a way of giving us a good swift kick in the pants, often when we’re least expecting it. Sometimes that wake up call is enough to get us to reassess our priorities and figure out what’s really important. Is it a status symbol car or a big house? Is the priority a sense of well being because you’ve given up a bad habit that has been ruling your life? Is it making amends with a cherished friend who drifted away because of a misunderstanding? Whatever it is, let’s not wait until life lays us low with some epic wake up call. Let’s give ourselves the gift of regular reassessments and the space to make small adjustments toward inviting more joy, love, laughter and happiness into our lives. Here’s what we do. Every morning we have disciplined ourselves to take a few minutes to list something we’re grateful for before we begin our day. Then throughout the day we ask ourselves, “does this make me happy?” We’re aiming to ask and answer that question often in order to be honest and clear with ourselves about what really does bring joy to our hearts. If you don’t ask, you can’t get. Just saying.
