Way back when, I remember Oprah sharing with us the “things she knew for sure”. Since then, whenever I start feeling out of sorts and being in doubt about something, I ask myself, “What do I know for sure about this?” With each answer I come up with, I feel more and more grounded.
Here’s “3 things I know for sure” about life in general…
1 Try FULLY PARTICIPATING or really engage in whatever you find yourself doing. This means taking everything you do—whether it’s a relationship, work, paying bills, taking a walk, or doing a chore—and really getting into it. I really believe most of our misery and discontent comes from getting into the habit of half-assing it.
2 HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE. We have the choice whether to make any situation in our life the worst thing that happened or the best that happened. It’s what we want to make of what happens.
3 Understand the PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO LEARN TO LOVE, not to avoid or attack what we don’t like. I often hear my coaching clients saying they do love others, but it also means loving yourself, the good and the bad, and learning to love everything else. I did a video on learning to love doing the dishes years ago, take a look.
