April is quickly coming to a close, and that can only translate into one thing: warmer weather is fast approaching!
For me, that means spending time on the beach, enjoying the sun, tranquility, and peace of mind knowing that I am doing something I love, after already doing something else I love first each and every single day – namely, being the best person I can be, as well as helping others achieve this too.
Working hard is great, and provides an invaluable amount of self-esteem and pride.
However, if one does not take the time to enjoy the fruits of one‘s labor, then all of that hard work will seem like a never-ending cycle, which can quickly lead to resentment, bitterness and unhappiness.
Many of us, whether we choose to accept and admit it or not, have fragile egos and are sensitive, so it doesn‘t take much to hurt our feelings and cause us to sometimes question our own talents and abilities.
Therefore, I have found that it is very wise to make sure to take a break from my busy schedule to spend some quality time doing what makes me happy, and, very often, it is the little, inexpensive things that do the trick!
Going to the beach, taking my girlfriend out for lunch, watching a baseball game on television, listening to music, or even writing my blog are some of the things that help me stay grounded, focused and content on a daily basis.
Whatever might work for you, I sincerely hope you are doing it, and are living a good quality of life, being happy in your own skin.
After all, it is the only skin we have!
