Do you absolutely love your life?
If you were asked this today, would you politely say “Yes” and maybe even mean it to some degree but secretly you’re thinking “No” but you aren’t sure why.?
It’s okay to be appreciate the life you have while wanting more even if you aren’t sure what “more” is.
For years I attempted to fill my need of wanting more with stuff – stuffing my life and my body with excess but the void remained.
I realized that I needed to redefine my definition of “more” and perhaps you do too.
In order to live a life you love you must build it around what you value and enjoy most and LET GO of everything else.
Proverbs 14:1 tells us “The wise woman builds her house . . .” Your life and all it contains (your self-worth, value, happiness, possessions, relationships, achievements, etc) is your responsibility, not that of others.
The people I noticed living lives they adored centered their existence what they valued, loved and enjoyed most.
A study of the gospels reveal what Christ valued most. He valued servitude, healing the sick, helping the hopeless, teaching and sharing His Father at every opportunity.
He valued relationships and cultivated deep bonds with His disciples, Peter, James and John in particular and solitude as He often slipped away for quiet moments alone with God. He appreciated connection breaking bread with thousands.
If you aren’t sure what you deeply love begin to pay close attention to your daily life, those activities, moments and people who bring you the most joy, make you laugh the hardest or think the deepest.
Pay attention to what causes you to lose track of time, inspires, energizes and challenges you to step up your game. Your “essentials” to a life you love.
Life will never be all unicorns and rainbows. Some days will be better than others but those moments don’t define you.
Begin today building your life around what you value most and create a life you love.
