If we’re not careful the world will fill our lives with busyness. This can result in a full life but not necessarily a fulfilling life? For a truly fulfilling life you must align your desires with the actions you choose!
If you have lost sight of your hearts desires or if you’ve lost your passion then how you spend your time and energy will reflect that!
Is it your time and energy spent on the Internet? Have you fallen in love with the mindless distractions of a computerized companion? The internet is just one small example of how choosing something out of alignment with your heart’s desires can quickly distract your attention and waste valuable time with unfulfilling activity.
Life is filled with things that rob us of living a fulfilling life. If you’re not vigilant they will clutter your relationships and fill your life with activity that lacks any real accomplishment.
We are challenging you to spend a few minutes each day really focusing on what you desire in your relationship. There is a great adventure in living your life as if your relationships really were the most important thing in your life. Read that last sentence again, it just might be life changing. Read it and ponder just how different your life would be if you really did put your partner first in your life.
Think about your where your daily choices are taking you and ask yourself if you are choosing to be in the driver’s seat or sitting in the back seat letting busyness or someone else determine where your life is going.
What would your days look like if you could take back control of your life and your relationships?
Do you have the will to live the life you say you’ve always wanted or are you choosing to give priority to actions that are counter to what you really want?
Here’s a small exercise that is simple to implement and can have dramatic results.
At the close of each day reflect on what choices you made since you woke up that morning. Were your choices in alignment with the desires you have in your heart?
If they were out of alignment what choice could you have made instead? Set a goal to make the appropriate choice the next day. As you do this simple exercise each evening your choices the following day will tend to be more deliberate and less a result of outside influence or bad habits.
The most tragic betrayal is when your heart and your head are in conflict throughout your day. You and your partner, as well as your family, suffer when you make choices based on habit or with little conscious awareness!
There is no need to stay unconscious any longer.
A life well lived – one filled with love, integrity and passion, is a tremendous life, especially for those of us with ADHD. Creating a life deliberately: of your own accord; of your own wishes; is central to living a fulfilled relational life.
