Have you ever stopped and realized that when you wake up in the morning you have the opportunity to do whatever you want to do?
Now, we all have jobs, families, friends, sometimes second jobs, bills, and much, much more — I know this.
However, what I want you to realize is this: Just because what there are several things you have to do today, you do not HAVE to do them.
Each morning when we make up we make a choice. We either think about the tasks of the day, schedule them in our phones, write them down in planners, or, we just do them.
Regardless, we wake up each day with a set agenda planned, completely forgoing creativity, free expression, down time, or really any thought at all.
Living in such a fast-paced world, full of “things to do” we are never able to STOP and consider what we WANT to do.
Try This Today:
In the midst of you day, take 15 minutes, just 15 minutes (you do have the time, especially if you cut out 15 minutes of social media use).
- Use the first five minutes to meditate in silence. Allow all of your stressful and damaging thoughts to free your mind.
- After the first five minutes, take the remaining 10 and write whatever is on your mind. Your thoughts, dreams, hopes, interests, favorite songs, etc. Write only the positive thoughts — free yourself of the negative thoughts (Those should be addressed separately in another exercise).
Try this exercise and learn some of the things that you actually WANT to do with your day/life, rather than what you have to do.
EVERY single day of our lives matter. Stop telling yourself “one more day” or “it is almost over” or “this will only take a day.” Because, the truth is, it is only a matter of time until you have to do another task that you do not enjoy doing.
Life was not created for us to live this way!
We were created to enjoy life and every single beautiful day that we are given!
Start living your life today! Stop allowing your “have to’s” and “need to’s” overpower the things you “WANT to” actually do 🙂
Be spontaneous, be adventurous, BE YOU!
You only get one life to live, start living it!
Share with me: What will you do today that you actually WANT to do?
❤ Wishing you love, joy and blessings,
