What’s Really Important? Sometimes I have to stop and ask myself this question. I tend to hold onto anxiety about things that, in the grand scheme of life, don't really matter. This is a question that keeps me grounded, that keeps me focused on the "right" things. So often, it seems like time is flying, like my life is passing by in the blink of an eye. I desperately want to slow down the passage of time. To hold onto those precious moments. To savor each one. I recently took a break from work, social media, and the busy-ness of regular life to focus on what's really important to me. I was craving time to slow down and be fully present in the moment, rather than dealing with the stress of checking emails, answering texts, and constantly being connected to a device. It was rewarding to authentically connect without distraction. It was refreshing to focus my energy on having fun, truly relaxing, exploring the outdoors, and savoring the precious moments spent with loved ones. When I look back on my life, those are the moments I want to remember. The ones full of joy, adventure, and love. The ones when my heart feels full and my soul feels content. When I look back on my life, I want to know that I've really lived. That I’ve really loved...Because I guarantee you, in the end, I won't be thinking of work, or money, or material possessions. I’ll be thinking about what's really important.
Let’s do this Thursday! 👊🏼 Back to my hybrid calendar workout this morning, which means I put the step up...for right now! 😉 .
Feeling accomplished and ready for whatever the day may bring. Getting my workout done early is what “works” for me. It starts my day off on a positive note and is something I have control over that I can check off. Not a morning workout person?? That’s fine, you get to choose what works best for you! Even those of you with unusual hours, this can work for you! 😍
Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more.
