I am a fan of over delivering. Doing your best and then some, at home, on the job, life in general. So what does that have to do with living life simplified? I like to see people happy; my customers, friends, and loved ones. Who doesn’t, right?
I have made it my personal mission to help folks because I can and I enjoy how it makes me feel. It is a gift. And gifts are great fun to give. These gifts are given without any strings. There are no expectations for reciprocation.
The key is we need to take care of ourselves first. You can’t give what you don’t have. Many people have a hard time putting their needs before others. If this is you, ask yourself what is getting in the way?
Putting yourself first means making time to do things you enjoy. Activities that bring you up, challenge or inspire you. Spending time with people that make you feel good. We impact people most by how we live our lives. Our daily actions and interactions. What people see, hear, experience in their dealings with each one of us, has a ripple effect.
If our own cup is full, then we have plenty of good feelings and energy to share with others. It could be a simple as a smile, or as large as the gift of your most precious commodity, time.
My days are full of activities I enjoy. I love my work in this world. I do things that are good for my body and soul every single day. This makes it not only possible to over deliver, it happens with ease. The less we are burden by a plethora of stuff in our lives, the more time we have to focus on what matters most. Taking care of ourselves and then giving back to those we know and maybe even those we don’t, is what living a great life simplified, is all about.
Join me, won’t you? It can be one way, together, we make the world a better place.
