In this episode I dig deep into my intention and purpose. And by the end of it, you might just have some tools for getting clear on your own.
I still remember clearly the morning last summer when I was living with my parents. I was in the middle of planning our wedding, renovating the farm, I was long distance with Joe, I was trying to make time for all of my friends, I was a seamstress with a 40 minute commute into the city, I was trying to get my wedding body, I was trying to make healthy meals for my family, I was trying to fix my dad’s cancer, I was trying to spend as much time with him as possible, I was trying to get my business off the ground.
And when it came out that this was all overwhelming me and that I was, in fact, trying to do so many things that I wasn’t feeling pride in doing any of them well, my dad gave me the advice that changed my life.
He said: You have to figure out what your priorities are, and start making your decisions about where you are spending your time based on those priorities. And that made so much sense to me that I couldn’t believe that this was not common human knowledge. To some people, like my dad, it is. But to me, it was not.
Here’s the steps I took to start living according to my priorities:
1. WRITE DOWN MY TOP 5 PRIORITIES
2. DEFINE WHAT LIVING OUT MY PRIORITIES LOOKS LIKE
3. APPLY MY PRIORITIES TO MY DECISION MAKING
Once I defined what my priorities were and started to make choices to get me there, my pace of life slowed way down. I made time to cook healthy meals, be with my family, exercise, read, meditate, create. And I through the hardest year of my life, I began to love my life, and I became proud of how I was living. I fell in love with every single day.
If this sounds like it would be a welcomed change of pace for you too, I created a FREE guide to help you figure out what living according to your priorities looks like in your life. Check it out below!
