It is so hard to believe that it’s March already. This year is flying by for me. It seems like the older I get, the faster the years go by. Is that just me or do some of you feel the same way? The speeding up of time reminds me of the importance of paying attention to the “little things in life”, like appreciating the time at my son’s soccer games and the time spent at the dinner table with my family.
As I began writing this newsletter, an email arrived in my inbox from Hay House author and good friend Robert Holden. He shared his writing about his 5 major life lessons. They were all great reminders, but I especially liked #5 and want to share it with you to finish up the week.
Principle 5: If you think something is missing in your life it’s probably YOU!
Robert is so right! For many years I felt like something was missing in my life. Even when I appeared to have everything – plenty of money, a nice home, Paul Smith designer socks, and expensive coffee – I still felt like there was a missing piece. On my birthdays – and at Christmas too – I’d feel sad after I’d opened my last present. I often got everything I wanted and more, but there was still an emptiness I couldn’t identify. Then, one day, I realized I was feeling empty because I was looking for things to fill a hole in myself. After a close look, I realized the hole was shaped just like ME! That was when I started to realize that only I could fill the void.
Gradually, I realized that the more I showed up in my life, the less I felt like something was missing. The more I expressed my heart in my work, the more I loved what I did. The more courageous and honest I was in my writing, the more I was in the flow. The more open and vulnerable I was in my relationships, the more loved I felt. The more present I was in my day – less busy, manic, searching, chasing – the more abundant I felt. Before I was hoping the world would make me whole, but only I could do that by being more present in my world. I can say that for me, Robert really did get it right in his observation and advice in this principal. I genuinely hope some of you can benefit from it as well.
Wishing you the best,
CEO, Hay House
