Live a Little - 3 Tips to Focus In On Finding YOU Again

It's Time to Begin to Find Yourself Again...Starting Today!

If you have been wondering where YOU went after you got married, had kids and became someone else's wife, husband, dad or mom, today is the day to begin to find yourself again.

Here We Go...

Here are 3 tips to help you focus in on finding the passion in who you are meant to be to live your best life.
  1. Find One Physical Activity You Love and Do it Often - For me, working out is my salvation.  It is my time to do something for myself and it makes me feel great.  Physical activity releases endorphines and those feel good neurohormones work to keep you feeling positive and happy.  Find a physical activity that you love and set time aside do it often because it will help keep you fit and make you feel fabulous.
  2. Think About What You Used to Love to Do Before You Were Married with Kids, and Start Doing It Again- I realized a couple of months ago that I never read for pleasure anymore.  It made me sad because I used to love to read.  For the last 20 years, most of the books I have read have been about kids, marriage, social media and living green, but I rarely read anything for fun.  I changed that recently by reading the Shades of Grey Trilogy, which was interesting to say the least, and I am looking for my next fun read.  What do you miss that you used to do?
  3. Let Go of The Past, Revel in The Present and Get Excited About The Unknown of The Future - On some days, if I allowed myself to, I could let my mind wander through some of my past decisions and begin to feel like I am living the wrong life because of them.  Focusing on letting go of the past, living my best life today and feeling excited about the unknown of my future makes me feel most alive.  Forget about the things you cannot change, find joy in the now and get excited about what is around the corner.  I am not saying you should stay in an unhappy marriage or accept living a life of defeat.  What I am saying is that I know a lot of women who wish they would have taken a different path in life and have kind of given up, and given in to accepting the mundane.  Don't let yourself become one of them. 
Reap The Rewards of Knowing Yourself and Experiencing a Life Well Lived

It is when we feel most alive and connected with our own desires and excitement about life that we can add to the lives of those around us.  Focus in on yourself by using the 3 tips above to reap the rewards of a life well lived.

You will never lose yourself, or your passion for life, if you refuse to sell your desires short.  Our desires are the fuel that we need to drive us to living our best life.  Live your life each day by focusing in on what creates a life worth living for you, and your spouse and your kids will only reap the benefits of your rewards.
