Good morning sweet people and happy Soul Sunday. I don’t know about anyone else, but June seems to be a bit of a drag. This week especially has been significantly hard to get through. What continues to keep me going is knowing that I am about to live a little next weekend. What does this mean? In adulthood, we work so hard that sometimes we forget to live our lives. Join me for Soul Sunday as I talk about living it up!
Last year, I spent Thanksgiving with my side of the family. It was my older sister’s birthday and I was very hesitant about going out. The response I received was, “you need to live a little.” These words continue to stick in the back of my mind. So much so, that there is a podcast dedicated to this very topic. As time goes by I can easily admit that I often forget to live my life. I am sure you do too! We tend to focus on things like work, cars, houses, and money that we forget to experience life. This is no way to live my friend.
So, how does one spend more of their time living? For me, it starts with exploring my hometown. There are so many things around for me to do from nice restaurants to natural waterfalls. Even the park on a sunny day is a lot of fun. To live a little is to experience your life. It does have to be a major vacation although that would be fun too. It means that you bend your set routines and schedules to experience your surrounds. It’s always good to step outside your comfort zone and have some fun!
Why do we need to live a little?
In today’s society, the demands of our work are much harder than it was in the past. Employers are expecting more work for less money. This can be a complete drain both emotionally and physically. It is important in the most taxing work, that you take care of yourself. Through self-care and experiences, you learn to reset your mind, body, and spirit. This helps you to recognize that you should be working to live, not the other way around.
Why is it so hard to live a little?
You are putting entirely too much pressure on yourself to get stuff done. We live in a fast past world and everyone is often on the go. It is often hard to just sit back and relax because you are probably already thinking about the next task to complete. What would happen if you broke the routine? What if you took the scenic route to work? Chances are if it’s a once and a while kind of thing, nothing happens. It’s import to slow down and enjoy life.
This week, It is my intention to do just that. I am taking a break from work and the daily hustle and bustle to live a little. Girl trips go a long way nowadays and I am taking full advantage of the latest on I have coming up. It is my one of my goals to travel more and take some trips to hang with friends and family. You can expect the following on the blog for the week:
- Adulting with Shauna
- Monday Repost
