Getting My Life Prioritized

Every day I’m asking myself about the kind of life I want to have. I can’t easily come up with the answer because of so many thoughts and worries that are running through my mind. Even when I’m trying to convince myself that I want this or that, I always end up confused by the uncertainties, the “but’s”, and the “what if’s”. It’s sad and unnatural, but it seems like I almost forgot my very own existence.

 
Sometimes you will be in a situation where you are obliged to do so many things your mind tells you to do. Until time passes you by and you already forgot what you really want, and neglect to see things that are more important. Your own life becomes your least priority and in the end, you feel regretful and unhappy.

 
No one wants to feel sorry for themselves. Everyone has their own dreams and ambitions. Time is short so better not squander it and regret the days you left without doing anything special. Make your life prioritized. Grab your pen and piece of paper and write down the things that will benefit your own life and happiness.

 
Here is how you can make your heart and mind decide what will be your life priority.

 
List down everything that is important to you.
This will depend on your life interest. For some, their life interest is their family. They dedicate their life to their family and make them their top priority. While for others what matters most is their own personal achievement. Whether money, career, good health, and spiritual advancement. Decide what matters to you most and list them one after another starting from what is more valuable to the least important.

 
List down your usual activities.
This is where you often spend your time every day or most of the time. Aside from work, most people usually spend their time on their hobbies and in developing skills. These activities are natural for everyone, however sometimes these are considered only a side trip. But if you find happiness in it, and that you can be yourself in it, consider your hobbies and talents as something that you need to prioritize in. Who knows, you could be the next big wonder.

 
Decide.

 
After listing down everything that you want to achieve and want to do, decide then what will be your life priority. Know it by your heart and think about it very clearly.

 
Now that you have decided where do you want to lead your life, make it happen.

Don’t Feel Bad About Having Fun

Having fun is quite an innate experience for all of us. It is what we learned first when we were just growing up. Some of us may feel guilty when we are having fun because during our childhood, we were reprimanded because we were chortling too much on the side while we were with our parents. Or possibly, when growing up, we think that doing something that we think is fun, is not socially acceptable.

 
Enjoy life to fullest
The guilty feeling is also one glue which keeps our community intact prompting us to observe the best concern of the community and act at its best interest. Enjoying your life is not bad at all; disregarding happiness will not help you any way. No one will benefit if you constantly remove the joys out of your own life. Instead, you should enjoy the good things that come in your life and cherish it.

 
Be aware and thankful for the bits and pieces of fun moments that come to you in your daily life. Ultimately these fun things that we do are the ones that are worth remembering. They give us the energy and strength to live our life more at peace.

 
You don’t even have to feel bad about the little things that make you happy like taking the last slice of the pizza or cake. It should not make you feel guilty if you take the last item on any get-together. You do not have to create a picture in your head like you are gobbling it right up and everyone is watching you.

 
When being alone means happiness and fulfillment
You do not even have to feel bad when you are doing things all alone as long as you personally see it fun. It is not a sign of being anti-social. Some things are simply done better alone than involving other people around. And you don’t have to feel guilty if you are single. No one is entitled to make a judgment about your status. Your parents do not have to nag you about when your girlfriend or boyfriend would be coming for a visit.

 
Having fun can be a good way to boost our social and personal life. Having fun with our friends build a long-lasting relationship and trust, having fun with our family helps our family ties grow stronger. It is alright to feel guilty once you have too much, but always make sure that when you are having fun you are not stepping on other people’s feelings.

 
Don’t feel bad about having fun!
