"Find & Keep/Protect Our JOY & PURPOSE For Our Lives!!
(SHARE & TEACH Family AND Others!!)
Wow, it's been a LONG time since I've taken the time to sit down and write a blog article! It's been almost 6 and 1/2 months to be exact!!
During that time, I've had the opportunity to do a lot of thinking and re-examining of my goals and dreams. And, you know what I have found?
I AM STILL "ON BOARD" FOR THE SAME GOALS AND DREAMS THAT I HAVE HAD FOR YEARS.
Now, I have to make some adjustments (more road blocks and detours as I've mentioned before) in order to "get back on track" and push further than I have in the past but...IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK!
The topic for this blog article (be sure to listen to the podcast here) came from a lot of the thinking that has taken place during these past 6+ months. The actual thought with this article is this:
WHY ARE YOU DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING?
Friend, it's important - VITAL - to ask this question about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that you are "connected to" in your life. That would be whether it's your job or ANY relationship that you have.
Perhaps you began working at your job because it was all that was available at the time and you had to "put food on the table". Hey, listen - there's no shame in that and I've been there several times in my life.
However, you need to ask yourself WHY you are still doing that job, if you still are. Maybe you've "moved up" in the ranks at that same job and are experiencing pride in that fact. COOL! But, if you're not...then WHY are you still at that same job?
Have you become bored and allowed yourself to get in a rut and "settle for less"?
What about your relationships in your life? Yes, I'm talking about friends, co-workers and even your spouse, if you are married.
Apply this thought to ALL of these relationships but I'm going to apply it to the one with your spouse. WHY are still married to that person?
*DISCLAIMER: I am NOT trying to start a war in your relationship! :) *
Here's what I mean: Go back and try to remember WHY you decided to ask that person to spend the rest of their life with you (or why you said "yes" when asked to do so). What was it about that person and how you felt that made you decide to make that commitment?
Now then, WHY are you STILL with that person? Maybe you need to re-discover that "why" and "re-ignite" that spark that made it all happen in the first place. Yes, even in relationships, we can become bored, take things for granted and even "settle for less" in what we put into that relationship.
Wouldn't you agree that it IS important to ask ourselves that all important question of, "WHY?"
May you re-discover your spark in all of these areas in your life. May it FUEL THE FIRE that you once had or may it IGNITE a fire that has never before existed.
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
And, as you do so, always be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
