What’s important to you? Is it that you meet your responsibilities, hang out and have fun, see the world, have lots of friends, your job or business, your pet(s), your kids, your health? There’s no wrong answer really, unless it’s your passion for overeating or other really bad habits. Everyone should find things in their own lives that matter to them and they would feel less fulfilled if they were without.
What matters to you doesn’t have to matter as much to me. We don’t have to have the same interests or ways that we spend our time. That’s one of the reasons why the world is great, the diversity of the people of the world makes it great. But just because you like different things than I do, it doesn’t mean that some of the same things shouldn’t be important to both of us like family, contributing to the world and supporting ourselves.
As we get into this new year I encourage you to take time to think about what’s really important to you and if the way you’re spending your days really backs that up. Are you really spending your time and money on the things that matter to you? Are you making choices that support the things and people that matter to you? Are you really aware of what goes on in your life or are you just trying to make it through the day? If you’re ready to do more than just live day to day, I encourage you to start lining up your habits and life with the things that really matter to you.
