Only you can decide what that is. All I’m here to tell you is that if there is something in your life that brings you grief or suffering, if there is something in your life that sucks the life force from you, that it can be remedied. You have the power to alleviate the stress by simply shedding light on it. A great place to start is by making a list of all the things that make your life worth living.
If what you are currently building your life around does not point to those things that are on your list, then please, I urge you to reconsider your options. Keep an open mind and an open heart, because there is another way, even if you can’t see it immediately. It will take time, effort and sacrifice to restructure the foundation you are building upon, but building your life around the things you love will be a journey of growth and joy. But first you must decide…
What Makes Your Life Worth Living?
Write down that list, simplify it, and make your heart’s desire a priority. You won’t regret it.
*side note: the word sacrifice is derived from ‘to make sacred’ which is quite different from the modern use of the word. To sacrifice is to decide what is sacred, to the exclusion of all other possibilities. You only have to give up those things that don’t serve the highest good. This information helped me on my way, so I share it with you in hopes that you make your life sacred by making sacred what is most important to you.
