I have a new philosophy on life. It’s nothing too far fetched or out there, but it is revolutionary, in its own right.
Hearing people complain that their life isn’t what they’d like it to be, got me thinking. Because, in truth, we all become disillusioned at some point, and need some reality coming back at us.
So, here is my new philosophy.
Identify what makes you happy and do more of it!
It’s not ground breaking and makes perfect sense in a way that’s kind of obvious, but we all get off track and lose ourselves along the way.
So, how am I personally going to achieve this?
Well, firstly, it involves being real about who I’d like in my Life. The first person on my list is my Fur Baby, Milo. He’s definitely my fave person. Followed by my Family, especially my Mum, and my closest friends.
For those I’d like to spend quality time with this means that for Milo. I will endeavour to spend quality time with him, by taking him to the park each week, for a run and a sniff. I can even read a book while I watch him make friends. Another resolution is to spend one day a week with Mum and whatever other Family Member wants in. This isn’t easy as everyone is super busy, but it’s a goal close to my heart, so I’ll make the effort to fit them in.
Secondly, I would choose activities that talk to my heart. Funnily enough, it’s my writing that needs the most love at this point in time. And so it is my writing that I’ll give my attention to. Writing is kind of like owning a pot plant. You have to give it the correct conditions, with the correct amount of love and neglect to keep it flowering and looking its best. Well, my writing has had enough neglect. And so it’s going to be watered!
And, of course, my garden. I’ll endeavour to spend an hour a day in it, watering, weeding and talking to it, so that it too will sustain me spiritually and with enough to eat each week.
Lastly, to do more for my Happy, I’ll get enough sleep, and rest, and eat proper foods so that my whole body rejoices for me and with me.
So, spending time with my loved ones, writing, gardening, and looking after my own general well being, are the ingredients for my Happiness Recipe.
What are yours?
