Sometimes life can feel all too much. Yet, remember the title of Hunter Hayes’ country song, I don’t want easy, I want crazy! Can life get too crazy?
The solution for my own life this past year became clear when I re-prioritized what I consider to be most important. Determining what to let go of or add to your life doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might imagine. You’re the only one who can ascertain what’s of value to you.
I’ve found that generating personal priorities helps to maintain a sense of clarity. Yet priorities can change. Remaining flexible to one’s convictions, while remembering what’s important to your loved ones, is necessary when you’re seeking a degree of sanity. You don’t have to accomplish everything all at once.
Notice I wrote a degree of sanity! Then there’s the title of the movie with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, Something’s Gotta Give. So for the present time, I’m writing a quarterly instead of a monthly blog, and letting go of those Monday Morning Moments™. I’m still available for walks and talks.
When I keep my priorities in the forefront of my attention, it becomes easier to question and reevaluate as necessary. For instance, since our son will likely be in our home only about two more years, I intentionally shift how I spend my time and soak up playful opportunities.
Are you in need of re-prioritizing your own life? Let’s begin today. It’s all too much can transform into It’s oh so beautiful.
IT’S ABOUT YOU:
- If you’re not certain what’s important to you, make a list of your top priorities from least crucial to highest significance.
- Where does caring for you fall on that list?
- What’s happening in your life that’s calling you to give more or less attention?
