How to feel fulfilled. This is what we are all searching for, but are we looking in the right places? How about exactly where we are right now? The advice I’d give to my younger self is, “Finding joy is pretty hard to do if you are always chasing after the next big thing without appreciating where you are in the present.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m a true believer of setting goals and pursuing my dreams. But I have now learned to appreciate where I am in the present. I have learned to appreciate all of the work I have done in the past to get myself to this point. I few years ago I was doing a sponsored post for Method Home and I was researching the founders of the company. Eric Ryan stated, “Enjoy the ride as much as possible, and take time to celebrate the little wins along the way. The journey is the greatest reward of building a business, but it’s so easy to lose sight of that as you’re chasing the next goal or milestone.” I remember being so inspired by his words that I consciously told myself to “celebrate my own little wins” ever since.
How To Feel Fulfilled:
The words “stop asking, start appreciating” stuck in my head from a Tony Robbins video circulating around Facebook yesterday. His message is simple. Once we stop asking and start appreciating, we will find joy. This is a constant reminder to myself and something I hope to pass along to my kids, especially this time of year.
These thoughts and inspiring words are not new. But that is no reason not to share them. Just think if we all started spreading these ideas in the hope to inspire others to live a more fulfilled life. Just ask my own kids. If I have said it once, I’ve said it a million times, “Appreciate what you have. The reward is fulfillment.”
Don’t disregard those ideas that wake you up in the morning (or the middle of the night). Jot them down and act on them. Don’t dismiss those pings in your heart to try something new. That passion is real. I created these inspirational notepads to inspire you and your own journey. So the next time you get that crazy idea in your head, write it down. There is power in writing your goals. Choose from Love Daily, Inspire, Life is Sweet and Rise & Shine.
