I have a question for you…Are you Happy? I mean are you TRULY happy? Do you choose to be happy everyday?
I have to say that YES! I am happy. I pretty much always have been. I love life and I am very blessed. But I also decide each day to do what makes me happy.
I enjoy my work, I adore my family, I love myself. Yes, I said that. I love myself.
And I love this week. It’s going to be a tough one…my favorite kind, actually. Nothing excites me about an easy week and that’s a good thing because I rarely have easy weeks. And no I’m not complaining, I am fully 100% responsible for the busyness of my life. I like it that way. I like to accomplish. I hate being lazy or idle.
Plus at the end of this week, I head to 8 days of vacation bliss with my family where there will be no cell phones, social media or computers…Yippee!
But I am learning to also love “Tobi Time”. And that’s not really down time either. It’s healthy time. It’s meditation. It’s yoga. It’s studying. It’s cardio. It’s cuddling with my daughter. It’s quiet morning time. It’s still work, in fact it may be the hardest work I do. But it’s amazing. And rewarding. And fulfilling. And I want more of it. Tobi Time makes me HAPPY!
A day or two ago, my mom shared a link to what it is that happy people do that other people don’t do. No wonder I am happy. I practice these things. Did you hear that? I PRACTICE them. I don’t PERFECT them…another reason I am so happy.
This is an exciting week…I started Oprah and Deepak’s 21 day meditation challenge. And I don’t think it is coincidence that I also started Marie Forleo’s B-school. One is full of realizing “my” perfect health, and the other is realizing an optimum online business. One cannot be achieved without the other. They are both part of MY story.
Self care + business discipline = a successful and happy life.
So I ask the question again…Are you HAPPY? Are you TRULY HAPPY? Right now. Not “one day”.
If not, what is holding you back. Is it a mindset? Is it your habits? You know you are fully capable of changing your happiness, right? All you have to do it decide.
Why not decide Today?
