You only need one thing to get the most out of life. It can be anything. Your home, gardening, career, art, music or sports, the list is endless.
For many there are several things that get them out of bed in the morning with a spring in their step, but regardless of the quantity – it must be done with a sense of quality, commitment and good intent in order to achieve the best results that life has to offer.
Finding what makes us tick is the easy part, it’s whatever draws you like a magnet, what makes your heart sing upon completion. Is it an immaculate house, a beautiful meal on the table, a finished painting or song, is it doing your job to the best of your abilities with passion and zest or is it as complex as a charity or human rights issue.
Life is busy with the routine of getting from A to B and it is easy to over look and neglect one of the most important things in your life…you…and holding on to what you find dear and important is one of the essential ingredients to living a full and meaningful life.
There is no denying that there are many things that make us feel happy, but we all need that one thing, that is ours and ours alone, to truly feel alive and centred. It is the one thing that you can do that brings about contentment within your self.
Everything that you do, and the way with which you do it, has a flow on effect to everything and everyone around you. It’s simple to see the results of positive activity, you only need to look around you to gauge that your efforts are well worth it.
Finding and connecting to that one thing that fills you with personal contentment is more than an integral part to living well. You will find that by pursuing your interests you are creating a positive and engaging atmosphere that is not only for your betterment, but ultimately the betterment of everyone around you.
