We all know that life can be complicated and with so many elements to consider in our lives, it can be challenging at times to just get through the day without feeling like you’re not getting anywhere or moving forward in any way.
But things can be simple. From time to time at least. I’m not talking about some kind of huge life transformation and lots of life planning, but only a small step. In fact, a simple question.
What’s really going to make me happy… now?
We seem to spend our lives planning and making lists of things to do in our future and this is all very helpful, but every now and again it’s good to not get too lost in it all and remember that we don’t actually live in the future. We live now. Today. At this very moment. And I believe we can have, perhaps even deserve, some happiness.
It could be something as simple as meeting a friend for a drink, spending time with family or reading a book. It doesn’t have to be significant externally, but it needs to be significant internally, for you. Something that brings a smile to your face.
With this in mind then, I dare you. Go out and do something that will make you happy. Like that L’Oreal advert says – you’re worth it!
So, what are you going to do?
PS the image of Helen Mirren is because while researching this article, I found out that she is the new face of L’Oreal and at 69 years old, that’s rather cool.
