More Meaning to Your Life

  Do you ever feel like your every day is just another routine day?  Sometimes you just feel like you are just going through the motions, wondering when the day will end.  Sometimes you feel like all you do are the routine - home to work and work to home - daily vigil.  Or maybe you just get up and run the daily home  routines that keep your home life in motion - just long enough to drop into bed at night.

  Do you feel like your day is just meaningless?

 Just going through the motions of daily activity can seem like an unending cycle unless you have something you are working towards.  Having a reason for living, is an important point to ponder.  It helps us have hope and look forward to another day.
 
  It is what we do with that reason for living, that keeps us fresh and alive!  What steps are you taking to improve your life, since you have a reason for living?  Are you truly living or just existing because you haven't figured out what to do with the knowledge you have.

  You can see that it is important to spend some good thoughtful time deciding what you need to be doing with your life during this season.  You may have had a recent change in your life that makes life seem so mundane and it doesn't include time for your self growth.  It is good to give thought filled time to wondering what you can do to improve your life.

  It really feels so good when you can find what it is that will bring meaning into your daily life.  You can feel so satisfied with your days.  Having something to hold onto and  work towards helps you feel the growth and progress you need in your life. 
 
  Life in our home is much more harmonious when this mother feels like she is becoming better!  The entire family notices the happy countenance and responses.  The peace that reigns because mother is happy, is worth every effort to find your meaning and purpose in  life.  The daily routines become less of a mountain because there are other things and thoughts which permeate mothers mind!

  Happiness and peace are a great blessing of finding your purpose in your life.  Find Your Purpose!

Decisions, Decisions

  Every day is full of decisions!  What to wear, what to do, where to go, when to eat etc...  But some decisions are so important that you want to choose what is the best.  We do make choices all day long, but some choices are just made automatically by the subconcious habits we have formed.  So, what about the other decisions that can fill up and over-run our day.

  How do you know what to do if:   Someone asks you to take part in an important cause like raising money for cancer victims.  It really may be important to you because your life has been affected by it in some way.  You know it is good, but you just had a new baby and you have 3 children.  You are serving in your church each week, you have a household to run, and on and on...  How do you know if it is a good thing for you to do?  You can just flip a coin or just make a flippant decision.  There is a better way to make the best decision for yourself at this time and season of your life.

  It isn't a secret, it is just a way to learn what you are to be doing.  You can know deep in your heart what it is that you should be focusing on.  The answer to all the questions we ask ourselves about daily, are contained in one grand idea - Find Your Purpose!

  Okay, why is that the answer?  Because when you know what is at the core of what you really should be working on at this time in your life, then all of your focus and goals and plans are pointed in that direction!

  Let's say that you know that you are supposed to be focusing on - Understanding Your Children - as your purpose in life at this time.  Let's say that you figure out what it will take to learn about this and put it into an action plan. You then know what your goals and priorities should be for the week and the day.   So, when someone asks you to be on the board for the community conventions, you can now ask yourself if this aligns with your purpose at this time.  If it moves you towards this main focus of yours, then do it, it may give you an added perspective that you need.  If it isn't in alignment, then you can decline helping at this time. 

  This may sound too simple, but it will help you to feel so great about where your life is headed.  You will know what it feels like to be guilt free, in charge of your life and focused in the right direction for you!

   Remember, you are unique and there are certain things you should be doing.  Learn what that is by asking yourself deep questions about who you are and what is at the core of your desires.  It is amazing how you can know deep in your gut, what you knew all along but hadn't stopped to think about it!

  Now you know what you should be focusing on, align everything with that purpose.  It will surprise you how much more simple your life will be.  The decisions you make will be easier to make and won't weigh you down as you speed forward, at a steady pace, to reaching all that you can be!! 

Here's hoping that you will have a more freed up schedule - and that the decisions you will make will be so much more simple and clear!!
(My ebook makes these ideas more clear and will take you through the process step-by-step.)

One Bite At a Time!

  My friend was saying that her life was just TOO full and overwhelming. Wow, is that ever true for most of us!  So, how do you really "get over that realization in your  life?"

  There is a principle that I've learned that says - If you want something to change, then you have to change something!  Now, I know that sounds like a "No Kidding" type of a statement, but really think about it.  If you keep doing the same routine, the same habits, the same actions, the same thinking over and over again then of course life will be the same overwhelming or out of control and frustrating scene.

  So, how can you make changes?  Follow the old advice of - eating the huge elephant one bite at a time!  It doesn't help to look at the huge-ness of the elephant and plan to eat it all at once. 

  My friend picked up a program to help her improve and she looked at it as if it was an elephant to overpower!  Anything that you want to improve in your life may seem huge, but taken one piece at a time will bring great rewards! 
 
  There are so many advantages to just stopping the normal wheel of life and focusing on yourself.  If you will stop to first look at where you are in life it will give you a starting place.  Then, only after completing that phase, you will move to the next step.  One bite at a time.

  Most of us just don't stop long enough to think about it and usually that will backfire on us!  That is when we get knocked-to-our-knees with a breakdown moment or become ill just because we think we can't slow down long enough to figure it all out, so we get forced to stop! 

  I've found that taking some time every night possible, for a few weeks, to really ponder what I believe or feel is of greatest value in certain areas and listening for the inspiration - has really changed my life.  As I have stated in my book, life became so much less complicated when I KNEW what should be of priority to me at this time in my life.  I found it simple to choose what I should be doing with my day and what types of things just were not of importance in my day.  I am now able to tell others that I can't take part in that club or event until it is in alignment with my purpose in life. I have cut down the things I do with my day because the most important things are the main  things on my schedule.

  You are so important to others!  I hope that you will make the time to help yourself become what you are meant to become!  I hope that you realize that you need to slow down and take time to really evaluate your life so that you will feel joy daily!  Take it one bite at a time!
