Life can seem pretty “humdrum” at times. We get up, go to work, come back home, and do it all over again the next day. We look forward to the weekend (for those of us who are lucky enough to have them off) and mostly because it’s the time that we get the chance to do some of the things that we love to do. Friday rolls around and we become a completely different person. We perk up, we get some “pep” in our steps, we even do a little dance because we know when the clock strikes five, it’s time to let the games begin!
How exciting would it be if we were to live everyday like it was the weekend?
Think about that for a moment.
Think about the feeling that comes over you when you’re punching the clock on Friday evening to go home. Ahhhh, freedom. Pure bliss you think as you jump into your car and head home on the freeway.
In those very moments you come alive.
When you’re sitting around the table with good food and friends, raising your glass in the air, you get a little taste of freedom. In that very moment you experience joy.
Now, what I want you to do is take those feelings, keep those joyous moments in your mind and think about what life would be like if you took the time to do more of the things that made you feel that way.
What are you picturing yourself doing?
It can be hard at times to focus on the things that make us happy because we have to devote so much of our time to the things that we are required to do on a day-to-day basis. And it’s unfortunate that the things that we’re “required” to do are not activities that we find enjoyable.
That’s not living at all.
We were made to live enjoyable, abundant lives!
So, what’s stopping us?
Many of us have gifts, talents, skills, hobbies that we are crazily passionate about (we all do, actually), but most of us never take the time to pursue those things. We come up with all types of ludicrous ideas and excuses as to why we can not pursue that which we love.
Your gift is light. Your talent is light. Your skill is light. It’s your contribution to the world.
You come alive when you’re in that zone. Do you not know that it can do the same for others?
So, I urge you today: “Stop. Wasting. Time.” Do that which you love. Live life like it’s Friday!
