Ever since hitting my mid-thirties I've made it my priority to enjoy my life more. When I was younger I was so wrapped up in the ways, or mindset of our western culture to prioritize my life around the accumulation of things, the sacrifice of time, and the placement of important relationships by the wayside. But then I started begging the question of what it meant to be successful and joyful life bringing into clarity what's most important.
"What does a successful life look like? How am I supposed to live? How am I to arrange my time? What activities are most important and should occupy much of my schedule?! What should I be focused on" I asked myself
In asking myself these questions along with others, I made the choice to choose to design my own life of enjoyment, peace, and happiness regardless of culture dictates. This is how to free yourself for a more enjoyable life. Get in a place of quietness, ask questions, and allow yourself the freedom to pursue whatever speaks to your soul. Make the choice to choose, and not react. Decide to be proactive.
After much thought and deliberation while pursuing answers to those questions, I've come to realize and acknowledge that there are more things more important then money, status, and/or a "luxury lifestyle." Don't get me wrong. Having a good high paying career, lots of money, and lots of toys is fine, but they must be placed in their proper perspective if you're to maintain your peace, joy, and happiness.
Realize that you only get one life. You only get one shot on this beautiful planet, thus it's crucial that you learn the difference between those things that will give you pure soul satisfying happiness versus those things that will only satisfy you for a season. No one wants to be in their final moments of life only to realize that they really didn't enjoy their time here.
Take a few moments, sat down, and make the decision to design your own life of joy and happiness that hopefully will enable you to say, "Boy! Did I have a blast of a time on this beautiful planet! See y'all on the other side!"
Be encouraged, have fun, and design your own life!
