I read something today that impacted me in a new way…I have gotten in the bad habit of denying myself happiness basically every day. When I’m in an unpleasant situation, I infect everything else in my life with negative thoughts and think of myself as a victim of my circumstances. But when I read this article by Marie Forleo, I realized things don’t have to be this way!
In order to find my passions in life, I need to bring passion to everything I do.
Whether you’re brushing your teeth, making love or cleaning the kitty litter—do it like you want to do it. – Marie Forleo
Let’s face it…this isn’t easy to do, especially when you feel down in the dumps! Who likes cleaning the kitty litter? But imagine doing it with a new excitement and energy that will brighten your mood rather than continue to bring you down. That is powerful.
This will be my new goal day-to-day because there are sooo many tasks that I would rather never have to do again. By revamping them, I can bring more excitement and joy in my life and hopefully become a more passionate person.
Another side benefit to proactive passion is kicking life-sucking habits like procrastination, resistance and complaining straight to the curb. – Marie Forleo
If you never try, you’ll never know…right?
