We all want to live the life of our dreams and be happy all the time right? I know your hoping I will tell you how to do that. I will… kind of. I am going to share with you three crucial components to creating the life you want to live right now. Not when you have a million dollars, a yacht, and a mansion but this year. No I am not going to help you get those things btw. ‘
Having done the work myself where I am happy and love my life at least 95% of the time I know what it takes. I don’t think any one loves their life and is happy 100% of the time except maybe Ghandi… maybe Ghandi does. There are three pieces in life that cannot be over looked and will help you build a solid foundation on which to create the life you want to live. Exciting right? I am excited because this is what I do for a living. I love helping moms, military spouses, female entrepreneurs and business owners thrive.
Authenticity has become a buzz word as of late. What it really means is being 100% who you are every day. Now there may be situations that you have to filter yourself. I cannot be dropping the F bomb in front of my husbands Captain. Filtering does not mean you aren’t yourself it just means you may not say/do certain things because of the environment, you are still being true to you.
In order for us to thrive we must figure out what is authentic to us. All the other components in this blog won’t work if you don’t know who you are, what you like, what you dislike, and what totally lights you up inside. We will only stick to things that are true to us. The rest will eventually fall away.
Need more guidance on how to find yourself you can check out my blog post: I Once Was Lost.
What does self care mean? it means taking care of yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally. You can’t pour from an empty cup and if you aren’t taking care of yourself your life will become a hot mess. When you feel like crap you treat other people like crap and that’s just a whole lot of crap that we don’t want or need.
Self Care doesn’t just mean being active and eating healthy it also means knowing when to give yourself a break or spend time with your friends. It means choosing to go to bed early when you feel tired. But it can also mean going out on a date with your significant other because you need that time together. Self Care means taking time to fill your bucket and that’s super important. Without it the other two components just don’t work.
I don’t just mean your romantic relationships. I mean ALL of your relationships. Your relationships with your family, friends, co workers, etc… EVERY relationship in your life plays into how happy, healthy, and thriving you will be. What does your community of people look like? Are they positive and uplifting for the most part? Or are they negative and tearing you down?
We are a magnet for the people in our lives. If we are attracting the WRONG people there is a reason why. Either we are feeding the negativity and drama by participating in it, we aren’t being authentic to who we are, or we aren’t setting boundaries with other people. They say you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Outside your immediate family, ask yourself what do the five people you spend the most time with say about who you are.
These three components are crucial for us to live the life we want to live. They are the foundation for that life. Which component are you struggling the most with? Comment on this post and let me know. If you would like help creating the life you want to live schedule a call with me HERE.
