The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
– William Shakespeare
I was on Pintrest the other day and I came across this inspirational post. It was a simple list of questions that resonated with me. I loved them so much that I decided to apply them to life on a daily basis. The questions were…
- What did I do for my mind?
- What did I do for my body?
- What did I do for my spirit?
- What did I do for my relationships?
- What did I do for my creativity my passion?
As I read the questions over and over I knew that God had sent me this message for a reason. Sometime you just have to make things as simple as possible. To live a happy, healthy life you must take things as they come. Growth is a daily activity not something that you do once in a while, it is something that you must work at every single day. I know that I can be very hard on myself and every once in a while I allow myself to be overcome by worry and depression but I have to stop that. There is no progression in digression. Being hard on myself about what happened yesterday and worrying about what could happen tomorrow are very unproductive traits so from now on everyday I will work on being the person that God has put me here to be by asking myself these simple questions. If I don’t have an answer to them then I know I didn’t do my best today at becoming better and I have no one to blame but myself.
Ask yourself these questions. Do you have answers? You should!
