I have been using this question as my theme for the month of May. It seems easy to continue to complain about things that are going on around you. This question quickly brings me back to the basics. It reminds me that I have a decision everyday, every hour, every moment to decide to think or do things differently. AND to think about those things that actually make me happy. Then I am responsible for my reality. No one else. That is a very empowering perspective to take.
What I have noticed over the last few weeks is this:
#1 I am having a hell of a lot more fun! Yep. I realized just by posing the question I made decision differently. I made decisions that allowed me to feel better with more freedom.
#2 I see more opportunities to expand. I was able to take classes that I normally would have passed on. I was able to change my schedule with ease and flexibility.
#3 I made some great new connections. I met people who were interesting and FUN to talk to whom I learned from.
Over all I would say it was different to ask myself daily if what I was doing made me happy or not. It shifted my perspective and propelled me to think about more what does make me happy and do more of those things. After all its my responsibility to make myself happy.
Would love to know your thoughts….
