You Deserve the Life of Your Dreams!

by

In the first ten-days of the Micro Habits- Tiny Things That Lead to BIG change series, we learned how our lives reflect our habits. What we do repeatedly becomes an outward expression of our lifestyle. So, if we are organized, our homes, cars, and office spaces reflect it. If we are a hot mess, our lives reflect that too. Whether your tendencies are tight-ship-like or loose and flexible, it’s usually obvious by your lifestyle.

What Happens When Your Outside Doesn’t Match Your Inside?

When it comes to lifestyle, sometimes our outsides don’t match up with the visions we have in our minds. In our mind we desire for our homes to be tidy, our bodies to be firm, and our relationships to be bullet proof, but despite the vision, we don’t have those results.

When our outward reflection doesn’t match our hopes, dreams, and goals we have inside it’s time to consider making some changes. That’s where micro habits come in. Through small changes, your lifestyle can morph into the life of your dreams, one small shift at a time.

You Deserve to be Happy So Dream

Your immediate reaction to hearing you should be happy might be “I know!” but you may have no idea how to make that happen. Philosophers and social media memes would tell you that happiness comes from wanting what you have rather than having what you want, but it’s more likely a blending of the two. It’s natural to want things and natural to be humble and content with what you have. Either way, you deserve to be happy and if at the end of the day you know you really aren’t, it could be related to disruptions in your lifestyle.

Micro Changes Help Build Better Lives

Sweeping changes rarely work. Making too many changes, too fast, often ends up in regression and feeling badly. Instead, micro shifts can help build better habits and a better life. Any area of life benefits from creating positive micro habits. Your home, health, and relationships can all improve one micro habit at a time.

You deserve the life of your dreams, but no one is going to ride in on a white horse and offer it to you. You’ve got to do the work and develop the habits that add up to a life that reflects your inner desires and thoughts.
