A post-it says a thousand words
Grab a post-it. Now write down 5 things you would like to be able to say you did or have included in your lifestyle 5 years from today.
What does it even mean to live life to the fullest? It’s not entirely obvious. We all have parts of our life that we love and parts that we like less. We have family, friends, work and responsibilities. Some days the things we usually love are the things we hate and some days just the opposite. So the best you can do is feel as though you’re living a life filled with content. This way, you’ll never be able to say you wish you’d done more. Seen more. Experienced more. And hopefully, the content you choose will take up more space than the things you like less and your life will feel nice and full.
What is content? Sometimes it’s an experience you can tick off your bucket list. Sometimes it’s an ongoing thing you’ve included in your day to day life. Spending time with friends, calling your kids, eating with your family, going to the movies, watching a great TV series, taking a trip, enrolling in a class, going for a walk – that’s content. Sitting around watching mindless TV, or playing an addictive game on your iPhone on a regular basis (though we need it every once in a while to tune out and unwind) that’s not content. Neither is working more hours than you can really be productive. Read a book instead.
This is my list. What’s yours?
