As the saying goes “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” I know some of us are quite busy however no one should be that busy that they are unable to take some time out for themselves. Finding a slot for yourself and enjoying a moment of your time is imperative. By taking time out to do something passionate enables you to bring something wonderful and refreshing to your plate.
As unexciting as this may sound try taking yourself one evening to window shop with your kids or better yet go by yourself. Maybe call up a friend that you have not seen for some time and make an arrangement to meet somewhere, have a good laugh and catch up on the past. Whatever your choice let it be a form of relaxation and excitement in one shot and the best part is it does not have to cost you a penny. Remember the simple things in life are free and pampering yourself is a very good beginning.
Most times our everyday routine takes us down hill. Let’s face it, life is somewhat mundane. Our responsibilities are huge and things are not progressing the way we would like it to. But always remember that there is so much each and every one of us has to offer ourselves. Our abilities to do things are phenomenal and should enable us to be empowered, empowered enough to be joyful and to stretch over life’s everyday adversaries.
As I mentioned earlier our daily activities can be extremely boring with the least excitement, and that is one of the reasons why it is important for us to bring to the surface something, something anew that can lift our spirits taking it out of the routine and the rut.
How do we go about exciting our lives? By taking that first step, not being lazy and by psyching ourselves out of the negative modes of “I do not have the power, maybe tomorrow,” or “I can’t be bothered. There’s so much on my plate right now I can’t think of giving myself a break.”
Developing new thoughts, building affirmations, sowing the seed of a healthy rational mind is the key to fulfillment. Try to converse with yourself often, ask yourself questions, and be not afraid to truly listen to the answers that are given to you. Try new things, be open and give it your all. It works for me and maybe for you it’s worth a trial run.
Creating a bond, loving who you are, enjoying and accepting yourself takes your aura to another stratosphere. It only takes that first step and it is easier than you think.
My quest today is for you to decide, “How much are you worth? Do you think you deserve some joy in your life?”
