Are You Living A Life You Love?
Updated: Oct 13
The dawn of a new day has arrived, and the arrival has been anything but grand. The foolery of the times is at an all-time high. If you have children, there is so much to be concerned about. From the political climate in this country to the superficial nature of the media it can be challenging to balance it all.
To be at a space and place in time where fears include joblessness, your loved one’s mortality during the day to day activities while being black, restructuring life and finding some sense of normalcy, etc., finding time to unplug is key.
At the end of the day, there will always be challenges to navigate.
However, choosing to connect to what you love about your life should be at the top of the list. The simplest things like “me time” (self-care) and being intentional about remaining connected to joy can miss the priority list. Moving forward without the intention of creating spaces that contribute to structuring a life you love overall can leave space for becoming overwhelmed, fatigued, and short of fruitful ideas to prosper amid this madness.
Ask yourself, “Am I living a life that I love overall?” If you are, what do you love about your life today that didn’t exist five years ago? Be specific as you reflect.
There is much more life to live ahead so being clear about where you are and how you got there will prove helpful moving forward in the face of new challenges.
If you are not living a life that you love overall, my question is – what’s stopping you? Sure, we can all point to a thing or two that we love about our life and not love our life overall. The point is to be intentional and conscious about finding, with specificity, where the disconnect may be.
What would it take to create joy in your life that is the constant backdrop of your existence? There is so much in this world that is out of our control. For everything we cannot control, there are plenty of things we can control. Deciding to go inward for answers when outward is chaotic will put you on the pathway to loving your life overall – all the time.
