"The only way to have peace in a relationship is to know how to butter your own bread."- Ra-Ha
Usually at the beginning of the year, we make resolutions and think about how we want our lives to look in the upcoming year. Around Lent, we have another opportunity to make a list of things that are not good for us that we need to let go of. But then what happens at the rest of the year? Do we not continue to reassess those things in our lives that we are allowing to prohibit growth?
Realistically, we should make sure that we are always conscious of cleaning the closet. A good rule of thumb is to do assess your goals and your relationships at the start of every season. Decide what is working for you and what's not working for you. Decide what you are willing to put up with and what needs to go. It's amazing how many of us will clean our closets of clothing or uneccessary items that have been stockpiled by the end of the season, but we don't make the same dedication to setting personal development and career goals or assessing relationships.
Here's how to get started:
Are there people in your life that don't give but are always ready to receive?
Are there people in your life that bring uneccessary drama and negative or draining energy?
Are there people in your life that are not supportive or are a friend only when it is convenient for them?
On a scale of 1-5 (5 is highest, 1 lowest) how satisfied are you with your job/ career?
How often do you set and reassess your goals?
Where do you envision yourself in the next 5 years? What steps do you have to take to get there?
Today's challenge: Answer the above questions and start to recognize those things/ people that are positive in your life and those things that need to be removed.
Peace and Blessings,
