I can’t believe I blinked and it is already Friday. What have you accomplished this week? Did you have a goal or did you let life pull you behind on a leash with no purpose of your own? That happens sometimes. We get lost in the hours that blur into days and sometimes weeks. We allow ourselves to feel drained in the never ending game of catching up or fighting to stay ahead. Ahead of what? What exactly are we trying to keep up with? The world has plans for us. Bosses have expectations, family has expectations, school has expectations and somewhere in the huddle we lose sight of what is important to each and every one of us. When we walk around living our lives the way everyone expects us to, we forget what it truly is that makes us feel alive.
This weekend, ask yourself “What is something that will make me happy today?” AND GO OUT AND DO IT! Stop putting everyone and everything ahead of your own happiness. Put on your own oxygen mask first and when you start to breathe a little easier, then go out and save the world.
