This is a topic that hits really close to home for me. One that I am constantly learning to do and fine tuning because, if I’m being honest, we are all human; none of us are perfect; and most importantly, we won’t always have our priorities together all the time.
I’m not here to tell you that you need to get your priorities together because only YOU know that FOR YOU. In fact, one piece of advice I have when someone else tells you what your priorities need to be (especially when you haven’t asked)—don’t listen. He or she is not you; only YOU KNOW YOU. Only you know what is most important to you and why you allot your time the way that you do—never apologize for that (something I’ve had to learn as I am a people pleaser; I know, I know—guilty as charged).
What I am here to tell you is that if you decide you want things to change in your life or you want to focus on different things, I can share some #foodforthought on what has worked for me and how I go about doing it.
When you think about how you want to live your life, what comes to mind? What adds value and makes you happy? Sometimes, it’s tough to figure out as those might be loaded questions for some. But I think it’s important to find and discover yourself in order to figure out what your priorities are—something I learn to do every day.
Another important point I want to make is that PRIORITIES CHANGE OVER TIME. They are not set in stone; priorities are FLUID, and that is OKAY because change is a gradual process.
So if you’re interested in how I set my priorities when I need to hit the reset button, then stay tuned for part two—The How!
