What Can You Do That You Love To Do?

IMG_2784

When you know what you love to do, and you do that as much as you possibly can, your quality of life increases.

What brings you energy?

Is it eating healthy?
Taking a walk?
Texting a friend a silly joke?
Envisioning/Daydreaming about an awesome future?
Hot yoga?
Reading?
Blogging?
Posting statuses on Facebook?
Sex?
Making more sales calls?
Planning your future, listing your goals?
Crossing of items from your Action List (some people call it a “to-do list”)
Bringing your awareness to your heart and feeling gratitude?
Soul-gazing with a friend?
Making Mary Jane Bulletproof coffee?
Expressing your uncomfortable emotions and crying it out?
Taking cool classes? (Toastmasters is an awesome club I’ve been enjoying lately)
Experimenting with different modalities of healing, like acupuncture, massage therapy, reiki, etc.?
Watching Vine compilations?
Playing Lumosity?
Burning incense?
Drinking a delicious mug of hot tea?

How about what takes your energy?

Lack of clarity?
Unwillingness to express and feel/metabolize your uncomfortable emotions?
Alcohol?
Too much Mary Jane Bulletproof coffee ;-)?
Eating unhealthily?
Say yes when you would rather say no?
Saying no when you would rather say yes?
Mindlessly scanning facebook or youtube?
Procrastinating important things?
Self-doubt when you could be reading?
Impatience?

When we compile our own lists of what brings us joy and energy vs what drains us, it gives a lot of clarity to our lives and reminds us that life can be really simple:

Just do more of what fuels you, less of what drains you.

And cry it out when you need to, even if that means every day most days.

That’s it. That’s how to life. Now you know.

Life is uncomfortable.

We can either accept the discomfort as a gift from the universe, urging us onto our soulpath, or we can resist it until we die.

When I look around, I see Nature with way too much design, too much love, too much perfection and purpose, too much jubilant expression and celebration to believe that this universe I’m a part of doesn’t also have an awesome purpose for me.

That’s just me.

Thank you so much for reading. Please take a few minutes to write down 5 things which you love to do (drink hot tea, take a walk, dance, sing, etc) and 5 things which drain you.

Grab out a blank sheet of paper and just take 60 seconds to do it.

You’ll be grateful for the clarity and renewal this simple action can bring.

Love,

Aaron
