Let’s be real- life can feel mundane and boring sometimes. We wake up, get dressed, work a 9-5 job, go home, eat dinner, sleep and then do it all over again. Sure it may be a little different for everyone, but for the most part, we are a people that follow patterns.
I find myself enjoying the stability but also yearning for something more! If I do the same thing over and over too much, it feels stale, and meaningless.
Which is why I HAVE to do this one thing to keep my life exciting.
Here is the secret to an exciting life: Always have something to look forward to!
It took me a long time to figure this out, but once I did I found myself having a better attitude about my everyday tasks that need to be done. It felt like my life had more meaning and relevance. The things I work hard at everyday are providing me with the money and opportunity to do something fun.
What are different things you look forward to? For me, its concerts and travel! I love being able to enjoy live music. My job allows me to be around live music A LOT! Which is great. I also made it a resolution of mine to travel more this year. So I planned a trip to Boston in the Fall to experience the beautiful East Coast foliage! It doesn’t have to be anything so big though! It could be saving up for a new book, or a movie. It could be a girls night out on the town. It could be a massage for yourself or a new coffee mug. Anything that makes you happy! Find something that you can look forward to and make a plan. Figure out what you need to do to achieve it. THEN! and this is the fun part… put it on a calendar, in your phone, in a planner etc so that when you are having a down day or an off day, you can look at it and know that you have something fun to look forward to coming up!
I’m already planning my outfits for Boston… ya girl has a problem!
