I love the word “day”. It means not just the day you wake up, but the whole day. And when you write about it, you can be more mindful and conscious about all of your actions, not just the day you do them.
One of my personal goals for 2016 is to take a step back from my immediate environment. When I write, I want to look at the big picture, and I want to make sure that I’m doing so with an eye towards the long term. I want to make sure that I’m not just going about my day feeling good, but that I’m making things meaningful in my life.
This is especially important when writing about day-to-day activities. When I’m writing from the perspective of the past, I want to look at the big picture, but when I’m writing about what I’m doing now, I don’t want to make the same mistake I made in the past where I’m distracted from the big picture. I want to keep my attention on what’s really important in my life, and not make the same mistake as I did in the past.
We all have our past, and just because Im writing an article about a certain day, it doesn’t mean Im writing about the day. I want to write things that are meaningful to myself and to the world. So this year I want to make a conscious effort to make everything in my life meaningful. I don’t want to waste time on things that dont really matter. I want to make things that I am proud to have and things that I am proud to have made.
But there is a problem. We all have a long list of things we wish we were better at, but we just never seem to get around to changing them. We could make a list of our top most favorite things: things we would like to change in our lives this year. But for that to really matter, we have to actually change our lives.
While there are many ways to change ourselves, making changes in our lives is one of the easiest and most impactful ways to start making a change you can truly believe in. Our lives are so tangled up with the daily tasks of our jobs, relationships, hobbies, and friends that it’s often easy to give up on making a change. But that’s only natural. We’re all living in a fast-paced, world where we have to make quick decisions.
The challenge here is that the decision to change is often not based on one’s current situation or on a change in their life, but on an external event. The challenge is that we’re all so conditioned by our daily routines and routines of others that we often forget about the fact that our own habits and our own thoughts don’t really matter.
So as I sat on my couch last night, watching the latest trailer for Day Make Meaningful, my husband and I realized that we were all a little bit of a wreck. We were also all a little bit excited. I think this is one of those rare cases where I feel more like a bad mom than anything else. I was so worried about the choices I was making and the people I was letting down.
This was one of those days where I felt guilty that I was letting myself down, and I was also worried for the people I was letting down. I mean, you have to decide who you are and who you want to be.
Making things meaningful has become such a big part of our lives that it’s become a little bit of a chore. I don’t know if making the best decisions is ever easy, but I do know that there are different levels of meaningful, and that’s where I’m at now.
