Ever find yourself saying.. “I wish I had more time!” ? I’m sure we’ve all said this at least once in our scrolling, wannabe instafamous lives. But with the standard 24 hours a day how is it that some people are able to accomplish more than others?
Some are traveling around the world, chasing sunsets and throwing a filter on all things fabulous. And others are just.. watching, or sleeping (which is apparently the cousin of death says MANY) sitting behind the scenes, on the couch with their feet up after a long hustle of what seems 9-9 now.
The cost of living isn’t getting lower any time soon, and there are some with a LOT less than you have.. so before we go all WOE IS ME (talkin’ to myself here)— Take a second and be grateful for what it is you DO have.
Be grateful for what you have, while working towards what you want.
I’ve heard lots of great things about keeping a gratitude journal. SO much that I have decided to keep one of my own.
– got this one as a gift 🙂 #grateful
There’s something about putting pen to paper, that really makes the magic happen. Some of the best business leaders, designers, entrepreneurs, and inventors have always advised, work from paper.
You can read more about that magic here.
On the contrary, as member of GenY and *slighty* addicted to the microwave mentality of INSTANT gratification (on the gram, the book, the bird, or the ghost) we might find ourselves passing judgement comparing our ‘right now’ to other’s ‘bests’.
WARNING : DO NOT DO THIS 🙂
Comparison is the thief of joy. – Theodore Rosevelt
If you’re not on an island with doses (of love) and mimosas, wearing couture and reading Cosmo… it’s all good in the hood.
Sometimes we can get caught up in whatever everyone else is doing, and we may neglect the one who matters most – ourselves! Like our teachers may have said, ‘EYES ON YOUR OWN PAPER.’
Just take a minute, relax, and just.. breathe.
I refer to social media as the drug of the 21st century, definitely read that somewhere, or heard it..maybe in an audio, so that’s my credit where credit is due. Call it a catch 22, can’t live with it, can’t live without it.
So while we can all be our own biggest critic OR catalyst for change, there’s no better time than A NEW YEAR, and every day after that to really plan and perform. Start where you are, with what you have. Slow down to speed up. Bring the importance into focus and cut the shit. All while appreciating day in & out all the wonderful things you are blessed with.
Make 2016 your best year ever, judgements aside.
