I believe it is essential for all of us to refine our lives from time to time, but what does that mean? To me, refine means to simply polish up a bit now and then. You see, every once in a while things can tend to become quite dull, and they might need a bit of work to shine back up again. So let's take out the polishing cloth and see what we can do about refining your life.
Let’s start by taking a look at your strengths and what you are good at doing, picking one of them and investing in yourself. What are some of your gifts and talents? Maybe there are things that you love to do but just don’t make the time to do them anymore. Think about your hobbies like sports, music, arts, creativity, crafts and see if there are things that you once loved, but time, chaos and life just keep getting in the way of you doing them anymore.
Maybe you used to take the time to read, sing, play an instrument, cook, draw, paint, or play a favorite game which brought much joy and contentment to your life at one time? How easy is it to lose focus now and then because there are so many other things that are important or that seem to take up the majority of your time? Well, today I am going to encourage you to take just a moment to focus on what those things are and see if you can bring them back into your life slowly but surely.
I believe in this word so much that I even built a product around it. My exfoliant for the skin is called Refine, and the affirmation on the bottle reminds you to focus on your strengths and invest in yourself. Your skin needs refinement just like your life does. Once you start to polish, there is a new fresh look and feel which will allow you to shine even brighter.
So, sit back and take a real close look at what you are missing, invest your time back into what you were once passionate about, polish it up and watch your life become even more fulfilled. Yes, refine is a must have word in your vocabulary and it needs to be done every once in a while to stay focused on living your best and most beautifuLIFE!
My affirmation for you this week is;
"I will refine my life by nourishing my passions and focusing on my strengths."
