It’s not what we have in life, but who we have in our lives that matter. Sure we all have people in our lives, but who are they? Do we really know? Do we really care? Friends, family, boyfriend, neighbors, fiancé, husband, best friend, pets? In this life we only have so much time. Yes, life is short.
Sometimes we can find ourselves accumulating more in life that we need or have time for. Things that do not speak to you or believe in you. Oh, they might speak to you in the moment, if you know what I mean, but short term has no storage unit for them. Long term could also be a challenge. Things we are not truly passionate about or speak to us spiritually. This can leave you feeling exhausted, spinning in circles and questioning your personal existence. NEWS FLASH not everyone is perfect. I am certainly not perfect nor have I ever claimed to be. Our past and even present are not always perfect. Our decisions, not always the best. One day I had an “aha” moment. I realized that purpose, health, relationships and time are precious elements in this thing called life and that moment called for analyzation and further thought.
Purpose? It is our WHY and it always has been. The “why” keeps us going when things get tough. So ask yourself “why”. The answer could lead you to the root of what really matters. Health? You should never take you health for granted. Always keep exercise on the to-do-list. Make sure you allow room for it’s extended friend called “eating right”. Exercise and eating right go hand and hand. Exercise can be a simple as a daily walking routine or as difficult as a regular gym visit. Whatever works, let it work. Practicing a regular healthy diet has never been easier. The internet is jam packed and ready to assist and grocery stores have defiantly stepped up their game. Regular checkups with your doc can also help. Relationships? What can I say. Friends, family and loved ones are really what add glow to our life. However these relationships need time and commitment. They need nurtured. Each one as an individual. Put into each one as you expect to get out of it. Did anyone ever tell you that maybe you should water your own grass. Relationships can be the foundation of the strength and support of our soul. They need loved and nurtured, each with what each deserves. Time? Everyone has the same amount of hours in the day. We all have responsibilities and obligations, but choices come down to time. When we say yes to something we are saying no to something else. This is a good time to ask that infamous “why'” question and let balance take over.
At the end of the day you need to be happy with your decisions, your relationships, your life. I am not saying not to do the things that makes you happy. I am saying do what makes you feel full and loved so that in return you can fully love and grow from the right choices that you allowed your time to swallow.
