Can you imagine the impact you would have by taking your heart’s BEST work up one notch? You are already having an amazing impact on the people and world around you, think of the possibilities!
You can do all of these things, but a few things may have to be adjusted to make them a reality.
You will have to take care of yourself like you never have before. I mentioned in past blog posts and our Facebook group that I was dedicating 2019 to take my mental and physical health up a notch. In order to do this, I needed to dig into the reason behind some unresolved symptoms I was having after completely changing my diet 5 years ago. Last Wednesday I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and it completely took the wind out of my sails for the past four days. Today I woke up and I knew deep down that I want to have more energy and passion in my life. My diagnosis is a stepping stone to move me towards having that energy and passion to do my heart’s BEST work. My diagnosis requires me to take my self care up one notch. Sometimes the steps we know we need to take are overwhelming, but it is never an option if we want something better tomorrow than what we have today.
You will have to disqualify the “works” that are not a part of your heart’s BEST work. What are the things on your calendar that do not fall into your heart’s BEST work? Are there things that you spend your time on that could be replaced with other BEST things? This decision is individual to you. I personally know a number of ladies who spend time sitting with their significant other as they watch TV. There have been times when all of us have said to ourselves “I could be doing so many other things right now”, but prioritizing time with those we love is a part of our heart’s BEST work. Sometimes sitting around and watching TV does not qualify as our heart’s BEST work, only you can decide. I’m confident that we all have something in our
You will have to decide what part of your heart’s BEST work you are going to take up a notch at this point in time. My heart’s BEST work involves my relationship with God, my relationships with my husband, family and friends. It involves encouraging others to be their BEST, and taking care of myself so I can do the same. It can be overwhelming to try to take all of these BEST things up a notch all at once. Decide today what one, or maybe two, BEST things you are ready to take up a notch. Ask yourself, what is one right decision I can make today to take those areas up a notch?
Don’t go at it alone! There is energy and strength in living out our heart’s BEST work with others. Taking our heart’s BEST work up a notch has its ups and downs. It is not only essential to have someone beside you during these times, but it is so much more fun. I have found that I laugh so much more when I am with the ladies in my life. We gain POWER when we are with others who EMPOWER us! Don’t do it alone. Carve out time to surround yourself with amazing people. It is a difference maker!
You are building on your already amazing life. You need extra energy from your self care and extra time carved out of your schedule. 2019 is the time to take the idea of living better and change it into the actions and passion to live better. Are you ready to take your heart’s BEST work up one notch?
