Are you one of those individuals that feel you can’t do the things you want to do because life keeps getting in the way of what you want to accomplish? Well, you are not alone.
The rush of life has us spending days, months, and even years choosing unimportant things; things with little meaning to us. When we go, go, go, and put time and energy into unimportant things it may seem like the right thing to be doing-at least it seems so at the time. But is it?
As we get older, we realize that we have set aside what is truly important for things that are less so. With that being said, how do we determine what is important and disregard the rest? Only by taking stock and reviewing how we are spending our time can we have a true picture of changes that may be needed.
Take a moment and write down a typical day or week and see how you are spending your time. Putting in writing what you do in your day can show you a pattern of behavior. Are you spending time on important things relating to your life? Are you making time to meditate, pray, to focus on your health, your family, and your friends? Are you putting together a plan of action to get that new job you desire, that new apartment you want, or that new car? Or do you just “hope” something will happen because you don’t really have the time to do anything to get what you want?
At the end of your day, review what you wrote. Take a reflective look at your response to life and see how you are doing. You will discover that many things you give time and energy to are of little or no importance. By eliminating these unimportant things, you are freeing up time for what truly matters.
Ask Spirit to guide you to truly know what is important for living a full and fruitful life. Focus your intent on what you know is important and ditch the rest. You won’t be sorry.
