It’s safe to say that we should never feel like we are the same person we were 5 years ago… even 1 year ago. Our journey is never-ending and continually shaping us into becoming the person we were meant to be.
To live enriched and fulfilled lives starts with what you do with your time each and every day. And yes, that does include your daily routines and practices.
There is a misconception that we must reach a destination in order to feel joy or be happy. But the reality is that we can “do life” and be happy all at the same time! From our careers, taking care of your home and family, even the errands. We can be intentional about what we do and be completely engaged with the here and now.
There has been a common theme I am seeing and hearing that many of us have been struggling with lately. Our once normal routines have been knocked off-kilter… understandably. We have shifted into a different time, and that greatly affects us and it affects our normal routines.
Routines change because we change. But here’s the thing, the more we think about how things used to be, the more we keep ourselves locked in the past. Locked in something that doesn’t even exist anymore.
For many, including myself, this means that we were walking life in circles.
We know exactly what needs to be done to get back onto a new track, but putting it all together can feel like facing a mountain. However, I want to encourage you, in order to climb that mountain, we need to take one step at a time.
