I was listening to a guided meditation this morning on the Headspace app and he asked the question “What is most important to you?” I repeated the question several times to myself but an answer didn’t come. Well, several answers came, myself, my husband, my family, making money, losing weight, saving money, my businesses, being a great athlete, inspiring others, being true to myself, my dog, sleep, eating healthy, my mind went on and on.
Luckily, the guy doing the guided meditation kept me focused (thanks Andy) kept asking the question so I could focus and re-ask myself “What is most important to you?” No single answer came.
It made me realize I haven’t been taking the time to focus on my priorities and what is most important to me, and that is why I have felt so scattered and unfocused in my daily activities the past 2 months.
I have lists and schedules and I’m frantically trying to get as much checked off as possible during the day, but I feel like nothing is really getting done.
I know I’m not alone in wanting to fit 30 hours of stuff into a 24 hour day, but the truth is, it’s just not possible. I want to add my new things (yoga, meditation, morning routine, running, eating raw, etc.) into my life, but not willing to give up any of my things I am already doing.
Impossible! I can’t add water to a cup that is already full without losing some of the water. And by water I mean my mind! Sometimes I feel like I am losing my mind.
I don’t like to complain about losing my mind because I know there are so many people out there who have far more to complain about than I do, but I know I can talk to you guys because you get it. Thank you by the way!!
Anyhoo…back to what is important!!
I am grateful for this reminder to sit down and make some time to set my priorities for the month. This makes decision-making easy and helps with focus throughout the day.
Here are guidelines if you don’t know where to start…
Because I was pondering this question today, I switched some things around in my day so that I was giving time and energy to what is most important to me right now in my life. And I feel SO much better.
And got a lot done today!!
If you ever wonder what your priorities are, look at your life. Whatever is getting the most attention will show up most prominently.
So take a few minutes today and think about (or even better, write about) what is most important to you. Then take action and craft your days, weeks, months, and life around your priorities.
In one day, I can already see and feel a difference.
Good thing I made my meditation app a priority and listened this morning!

Thanks for being part of my life!
See you soon!
