Reporting From Glendale, California.
On occasion, people ask me things. On occasion, I tell people things. This is something I tell them.
Sit down in a quiet place, and write down all the things you love to do. Make an exhaustive list. But don't write down things that you merely like. Choose things that truly bring you joy. Take your time with this. Don't pick things just because you think you ought to love doing them. Be honest. Dig back into your childhood also. What things did you love to do back then? Do you still love them now?
Look at your list. Ask yourself how many of those things on your list do you actually do every day. How about every week? Every month? How often do you participate in the activities that bring joy to your life? Very much? Not very much?
I suggest you start doing more of the things that you love to do more often. We are what we love. And if we do not embrace the things that we love to do on a regular basis, we cannot fully be who we are.
