I remember the day I read this quote. I was looking for something more, I was not sure in which part of my life was lacking, but something was. I had decided then and there to take stock. When was the last time you stopped and took stock of your life top to bottom? I bet more recently if you were affected by COVID. But mine was years ago.

Most normal people, I feel, have their ups and downs. If you don’t.. I feel yo aren’t human. ( If you are not human, I am calling X-Files)

Let us begin with liking yourself. If you are true to yourself, have you ever doubted or were not happy with yourself in general? Boy I have been! It took me years to found out what I call my foundation. I am not talking about your significant other, as we have to be true and like ourselves first before we can include someone else. I generally was floating day to day.. work, home, sleep,work home, sleep.

I would catch myself when I was falling asleep thinking about past regrets. And my goodness it would cycle over and over until I dozed off. And that is a feat in itself. Problems sleeping still exist! But I had to somehow stop and come to peace with those regrets.

I started to journal..so much so I had to buy more journals! I would stop and re-read the journal before buying a new one and most of the pages were filled with the same thing. I decided to go write down what I would change about each decision and finally realized that it was too late. I would have to move forward and settle my soul. My soul is my foundation. Not my job, my outward appearance, not a bank account. I wanted to try, with each thing I do, to not make a decision that would be a regret. Impossible really but it does make you think! My soul became and still is a life long journey.

Liking what you do

This can be for anything in your life. From cooking to jobs, being a great parent, etc. I try to incorporate this in everything these days. I have had been jobs I love with bad bosses/management, to being totally happy with a job all the way around. Sometimes it takes some of us a little longer to find where we belong, and that is ok!

How you do it– attitude changes everything! That is all I can say with that, as if you think about it.. it is 100% true. A bad/crappy attitude can ruin your life, perspective about life, and push others away.
