There is more to life for all of us than just living it. That means we should be living a meaningful and fulfilled life, one that makes us feel amazing. We should be doing the things that make us smile, and we should go to bed every night knowing that we used our gifts to make a difference in the life of someone else. If we are not careful we can get so caught up in everyday activities and the busyness of life that we forget to reach for more and expect more.
Every day that we wake up we should be happy for the new day and excited to see what unfolds. We should feel so fulfilled that the joy from us radiates into the lives of others. We should stop to reflect on the beautiful things in life, and deeply appreciate those we are still blessed to have in our lives.
Life is too short to be busy all of the time. Many people are too busy to pursue their dreams, too busy to enjoy life, too busy to enjoy family, too busy to live in purpose...just always too busy. It is a sad reality that busyness is a time stealer, and a joy killer.
There comes a time when we all just have to stop and evaluate our life. We have to do a self assessment and look at what we should be doing that we aren't doing. Being productive and being busy are two different things. It is true that there are only twenty-four hours in a day, but it is what you do with the time you have available that matters.
If you really take a deep look in your life you will realize that you deserve to set some time aside to do things that make you feel more fulfilled, even if it is only a few hours a week. So often we give our time away to others instead of using it to enhance our lives. Time is a precious commodity and once it is gone you can never get it back. So it is important to treat your time like the precious jewel it is.
It is your time to be all that you were born to be. It is your time to make room in your life for your dreams. It is your time to make the decision that not another day will go by that you aren't feeling fully rewarded. There is more to life than living it. And you deserve to find out what that really means.
