This week I want you to ponder this question. When you find the answer, you go do that. Again and again. And then again as often as you can.
I know work is work and oftentimes we just cannot find pleasure in a mundane 9 – 5 job. Some folks are very fortunate to have work that they love so they never feel as if they are working. If this is not you, it’s okay. There is still pleasure to be found in ordinary things and ordinary days.
If you can pinpoint just what in life lights you up, then it is your duty to feed that. What lights up and makes you feel good? I recently pulled out canvases and paints that had been lying hidden for years. When I can find the time to put paint to canvas my mood gets so much better. Maybe you love a certain poem or song. Perhaps you have a certain scarf that makes you feel like a million bucks when you wear it. Perhaps it is a great book or time with a friend, going to church or baking a cake from scratch. If we can identify these things in our own world that makes our corner of the world a bit brighter for ourselves, then we have a duty to seek those things out when we can. If we are lit up on the inside, can’t you see how you will project to others around you?
This week think about the things that light you up and find ways to include them in your life. Your mood will improve which will improve your day which will improve the quality of life of those around you.
