Do One Thing Differently To Bring Love Into Your Life
If I could go back and do one thing differently, I would change this one thing.

I’ve learned many things since my single days. Some are things that I regret doing and wish that I had done differently, and some are things that I regret not doing in the first place. It’s this second group that leaves your body aching with the painful regret of missed opportunities, of what could have been.

If I could go back and do one thing differently, it would be that I would consciously choose to always do what I love doing. You see, when you love what you are doing, you are loving life.

 

Love Your Life

You know what I’m talking about – think about a time when you were doing something that you were totally engrossed in and time just sort of came to a standstill. You’re so in the zone that you don’t even realize that hours have gone by, or that you haven’t eaten anything and you’re extremely hungry, but you don’t want to stop doing what you’re doing. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s when you’re loving what you’re doing, and loving your life.

You see, when you love what you’re doing, you really, truly begin to love your life, and that’s when things just start to click. And the more you love your life, the more you begin to be love, and to exude love. You begin to be more joyful and loving of others. All of this in turn brings more and more love into your life; it has a sort of snowball effect.
When you love what you do every day, it’s so much easier to find love and attract love – in fact, it just happens.

So why don’t we just do this? Why are so many of us not only not loving our lives, but we’re just getting through them, trudging tirelessly through our days, thinking things will be better tomorrow?

Well, there are many reasons, probably as many reasons as there are people. But there’s a common theme among them: We’re not living our own lives. We’re not living our lives for ourselves. Instead, we’re doing what we think we should be doing. What others, our parents, our teachers, our school counselors, our friends, the media (mostly the media!) have told us we should be doing. We choose a school, a job, a career path, because it’s considered by others to be prestigious. We choose who we date because of what the media tells us is beautiful, what our parents tell us is respectable, what our friends tell us is glamorous. It just goes on and on.

We live our lives constantly concerned about what others will think of us. Are we wearing the right clothes, are we going to the right places, are we doing the right things? And we’re so afraid to try anything different, because what if we fail? What will everyone think then?

Next: If you love what you're doing, you can't fail.
