Admit it.

You’re guilty of it.

Yes, it’s January¬†and you’re already looking forward to a vacation.

So, you plan it. Why not? Something to look forward to, right?

Of course it is!

Vacation’s are AWESOME, DUH! {Sorry for being such a smarty}

Fast forward.

Now, it’s one week until vacation. You’ve waited ALL.WINTER.LONG. for this dang thing and you’re so ready for it.

One week.

No work.

Sunshine.

Sand.

Waves.

Relaxation.

Awesomeness.

Wow, that sounds amazing, right?

It is amazing. You have a great time during the one week of pure heaven.

Ahh… breathe it in. Make it last. Because… it is only for one week.

Yep, you guessed it.

Now, it’s time to pack up and head home. A small piece of you is glad to go home, but for the most part, the anxiety is settling in…

You know that once home, you have a list of things you’ve got to do to get ready for– yes, you guessed right, again!– work on Monday!

Back to the grind.

Does this sound like you?

If so, stay with me here… I used to be the same way.

I was always was looking for something to do, something to look forward to.

Can you guess why?

It was because I wasn’t truly satisfied with my life.

Don’t get me wrong. My life was great!

Great husband, family, friends, job, everything. The only problem?

It wasn’t fulfilling enough for me.

Now, you can call me ungrateful.. That’s what it sounds like, I know.

But what about you? Are you ungrateful?

You have all these great things in life as well, but why do you feel unfulfilled?

The reason I was feeling unfulfilled is most likely the same reason that you’re feeling the same.

You’re not living your life’s purpose.

Did you know that we’re all here for a reason?

I could go on and on, but I won’t harp too much.

Just know, deep down inside, that you never need to settle.

Settle for nothing.

You only live once, so why not life a life you love?

Better yet, life a life you’re IN LOVE WITH!

You may be asking,

“How am I supposed to do this? How can I find a more fulfilled life?”

The best thing I’ve taken away from finding my purpose is to detox my life of the things that aren’t serving me.

When I find myself doing things that I really don’t enjoy, I re-evaluate the situation and change it up…

When we take things out we don’t enjoy, it allows time for the things that we love to do.

When we do more of the things we love to do, we become more of the person we’re meant to be- OUR PURPOSE.

Remember, you only live once, so live your life to the fullest!

Happiness, Audra
