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!!
