What really matters might not be what seems to be the most urgent thing on your to-do list. How often do you start the day prioritizing what is most important that you do today and then something interrupts your plans and the to-do list goes out the window?
It could be a call from school that your child is sick, or your Mom is going to the ER, or the dog is hit by a car. I hope that none of these things happens to you, but, if something like this occurs, your response is to drop everything and see to your loved one, right?
What if you STARTED with that priority?
This is what I mean by ‘Keep It Simple.’
Start with what really matters to you in your life. Are you struggling with a job or business or career that is not feeding your soul? Do you feel that you are just settling for your life instead of living it with great verve and excitement? Are your relationships satisfying and stimulating or are they feeling flat or possibly even toxic?
Do you do a lot of things because you feel you ‘should’ or you ‘have to’ but they don’t bring delight to your days?
Well, you now have permission to change all of that.
You were born to live a soul purpose that includes constant growth and personal evolution. You are here on Planet Earth to make a difference. There are other souls who are looking to you to help them learn their lessons.
And the most important energy in the world is the energy of LOVE.
What do you LOVE? Who is it that you LOVE? What do you LOVE to do?
Let LOVE drive your to-do list. Focus on what is important to your soul, to your purpose, to your heart. Don’t wait for an emergency to arrive to show you where your priorities lie. Make a conscious choice that you will focus on what really matters and put LOVE at the top of the list.
Do you feel obligated to postpone a lot of satisfying activities until all the ‘shoulds’ are out of the way? Maybe it is the other way around. Maybe you ‘should’ do what is satisfying so that you have more energy to bring to what is left on your to-do list. Do what makes your soul sing and you will have plenty of time and energy for the other tasks.
And your soul will be singing!
The energy of taking care of a ‘should’ that you don’t really want to do is a contracted energy that tightens you up. The energy of doing something that you LOVE is expansive energy that spreads the LOVE around.
How do you want to spend your day? Contracted or expanded and spreading LOVE energy wherever you are?
Keep it simple. Choose LOVE. Focus on what really matters and it becomes very simple to choose.
