What brings joy in your life? What activity recharges your batteries? What makes you laugh?Brightens your day? Makes your life fun and fulfilling?
Stop and answer those questions. Seriously, right now. Do it.
Were you able to quickly identify the things that you enjoy in your life? Are you feeling a little lost because you’re struggling to come up with answers? Or are you annoyed and ready to close out this blog because, “I don’t have time to think about enjoyment…I’ve got work to do!”
Wherever you fall on this spectrum, there’s a good chance considering what truly brings fulfillment into your life is not high on your priority list, much less pursuing it. And we get it. Life is busy…especially if you’re a working woman. You’re juggling multiple demands at work and at home. There are deadlines and responsibilities and people relying on you. There are groceries to buy, clothes to wash, errands to run, AND at some point you have to eat, shower, hopefully work out, sleep and have enough energy to be present to the people you love.
There’s no question that our lives are full. But are they full of what really fills us? Imagine for a moment how things would be different if you carved out space each week for enjoyment. We’re not talking about neglecting your job or family or health, but about intentionally scheduling a little time (without guilt) to do the things that recharge you, make you laugh, fill your heart with gladness, and put a smile on our face.
We hope you’ll follow along this month as we discuss the theme of enjoyment and why incorporating it in our lives is so beneficial to us – especially as working women!
