Mindful Mondays: Self

Don’t let a day go by without asking who you are.

— Deepak Chopra

Today is a wonderful day to think more deeply about how you define yourself.

What are your passions? Current interests? How would you define yourself as a person?

Are you happy?

If you aren’t, meditate on it. Look within yourself, discover where to roots of your unhappiness lie.

Consider what you can do, right now, to improve your happiness. It doesn’t have to be more than indulging in your favorite cup of tea or curling up with a novel. Any step will do.

After improving your current state of mind, create a long-term goal. Do so with your unhappiness in mind. If you’re unhappy with where you live, make a goal to move away, anticipating what steps would need to be taken to make it happen. If you’re unhappy with whom you’re with, consider relationship counseling, or simply moving on.

At the end of each day, our lives are all we have. Work toward your own happiness.
