7/23/14 – Weekly Words of Wealth – Evolving
This morning I was arranging our guest bedroom for my nieces who are coming to visit. As I arranged things on top of the sewing machine I have not used in the past couple of years, a part of me that felt guilty that I no longer used it to make quilts as I had in the past. Then I realized how my life has changed and evolved and I now do other things that I love like scuba diving in the Pacific and hiking in the mountains.
So often, we hold on to things out of loyalty or a belief that just because we really enjoyed something at one time, it means that we have to do it forever. I love the power of asking the question, “What would I love?” not just once or even twice, but over and over again because it helps me notice when my interests and preferences have changed.
It doesn’t mean that I am ready to release my sewing machine altogether but at least I feel better about having flowers on top of it making this room more beautiful for my nieces.
This week, take stock of the things you put your time into and ask if they give you life. Do you continue to participate in activities just because it is what you have done and if so, what would you love to do instead? Just experiment with putting more attention on the things you love and less time and attention on the activities that may be just so/so. Watch as you do this how your love for life just dials up exponentially!
Here’s to doing the things you love!
