Life is what you make it

It may not feel like it but life is what you make it. Every day we have a million and one choices that we can make which will impact our lives further down the track. What we choose to focus our attention on shapes those choices. What we believe to be true about life is one of the filters through which we view the world.

Right now, you are one choice away from a completely different life.

Remember those million and one choices that we make every day? Choosing to do one thing differently will have a ripple effect on your whole life.

It might be something as simple as starting to make your bed every morning. Now, I’m a self-confessed slob and I started doing this a while ago. I bought a new duvet cover and matching pillows and it looked so pretty so I kept doing it every day. It makes the whole room look so much more luxurious and that alone makes it worth it.

Little things make a difference

We don’t see it but, incrementally, life changes. One small change soon leads to another and six months, twelve months, two years later and you are completely different from who you used to be. They don’t need to be big things but they do need to be done consistently – daily if possible. They say it takes twenty-one days to create a habit  but the reality is its different for everyone  what really matters is how consistently you repeat the new habit. There’s nothing sexy about that but it’s the truth.

Consistency is key.

Keeping track of your improvements is sexy though. I started tracking my core self love tasks like a daily “to do “ list. And it worked. I could see if I wasn’t taking care of myself by the number of days I let certain self love tasks slip. It might feel like skipping one day of exercise or meditating won’t hurt but before you know it another day slips and then one more and before you know it weeks or maybe even a whole month has slipped by.

It started off as a list at the top of my diary page. Yes, I’m old school and use a paper and pen diary (alongside my online schedule). What happened was I kept adding more daily self love tasks and it was taking up too much of my page so I switched to an Excel spreadsheet. Now I  can see at a glance what area of my life needs some work and which ones are doing just fine. I added the spreadsheet to my “Daily Devotions” PDF You can get your free copy by signing up to my newsletter
