Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress, working hard for something we love is called passion. ~Simon Sinek
The last few months have been stressful. Not from my job, but from doing things I’m not passionate about and wasting time with people I don’t care about. Time that could have been spent with family and activities I love. In an attempt to please others I have temporarily lost my way. Helping others is only good if you have your own house in order.
What I do with my “spare time” is just as important as my work week and I need to be more careful on how I spend it. Before saying yes to anything, I need to ask myself a couple of questions. Will doing this compromise my core values? Will this activity affect my closest relationships?
Sometimes we face obstacles that give us time to think before we act. I will consider these last few months a gift as I have learned a valuable lesson. Time is precious and life is short or the other way around. Don’t waste another moment of it.
Listen to the roar deep in your gut. It’s telling you something.
