“There is Pleasure in the Pathless Woods” – Lord Byron
Although you may not know exactly where you are headed or why you are on the current path, find what makes you happy along the way. Find contentment in the little things. What makes your heart beat and ignites your spirit? Do more of that. Our society breeds us to think big picture and to focus so much on the future, on getting somewhere, reaching a goal. When you start enjoying the journey, the process, your whole perspective on life changes. Real life does not go according to the plans we put in place, so the more you can enjoy where you are, the more enjoyable your life will be.
Regardless of where you are at, find time for happiness. Reading a book, painting, writing, hiking, what is it that makes your heart sing? Even the mindless activities like laundry and doing the dishes can give us such satisfaction and contentment. I encourage you to simplify and instead of saying “yes” to every invite that comes your way, say “no”. Say “yes” to you. The more “you” time you have, the more you will be relishing in your true self and find your way.
Rooted in you. xo
