Do you have passion for anything in your life? What do you love? What moves you in an emotional way? Family? A hobby? Animals? Music? Fixing things? What do you do in your life that creates a feeling of calm and peace and after you're finished you feel fulfilled? If you have trouble answering any of these questions, this week's blog is for you! This week Imagine Hope is talking about 5 different things to do to help you find fulfillment and joy in your life. Step One: Observe Yourself
I encourage you to watch yourself this week. How do you choose to spend your time? Did you find joy in anything you did? Step outside of yourself and look at how you react to things. What tv shows do you watch and enjoy? Which ones do you dislike? What types of conversations draw you in and leave you feeling filled up emotionally? Which conversations exhaust you and leave you emotionally spent? Are you drawn in to your community and world events and news? What do you "wish" you had more time to do? Do you have a strong desire to try something new in your life, but haven't taken the time to do it?
Observing yourself and answering the above questions can help you narrow down things in your life that can bring more joy and fulfillment. You most likely already have the answers, you just need to slow down and observe yourself to see what you need to invite more into your life.
Check back tomorrow to see our next step! Thanks for reading!
