6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

    Fridays are fun, but one thing I’ve discovered in my quest to find and do work I absolutely love is that almost every day can be really fun. If you’re saving all your living for the weekends, it’s time to truly think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great to have plans you look forward to on the weekends, but what if you could have that excited Friday feeling most, if not all, days of the week? It takes a lot of self-discovery and work, but it’s truly possible to live a life you love—even on Mondays.

    2. You live for your vacations.

      Vacations are great, but what’s even better is building a life you don’t need to take a vacation from. As Seth Godin said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” Vacations are fun and exciting, but even better is building a life where you have the potential to do what lights you up many weeks of the year, not just your two allotted vacation weeks.

      3. When you stop and think about it, you’re really not focusing your life on your priorities.

        Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Consistently spending time doing what matters most to you is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled in your life. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you, it’s time to make some changes.

        4. You have no idea what lights you up, and you don’t have the space in your life to discover it.

          If you haven’t found your passion in your current life, you’re not going to find it if you continue to do your same routine, over and over, year after year. In order to discover what lights you up, start by creating the space in your life to seek it. Give yourself time to figure out who you are, what your strengths are, and what picques your interest. Experiment with learning new things, spending time with inspiring people, and doing more of what excites you and less of the things that suck your energy.

          5. You’re frequently jealous.

            If you find yourself frequently feeling jealous of someone, there are 3 changes to consider making:

            1. Make a point to focus on your path instead of his or her journey. Sometimes this involves taking a break from social media.
            2. Get inspired from the person you’re jealous of, and work toward a similar goal in your life.
            3. Decide what the other person has is not something you are willing to put in the effort to achieve, so you’ll cheer him or her on but choose to not be jealous.

            When you are feeling jealous, consider why you want what the other person has, and what your motives are. Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more fulfillment than trying to be somebody else.

            6. You can’t remember the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone.

              According to Neale Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Your life can become even more amazing if you stretch beyond your comfort zone. If you’re not sure where to start, try the tips in this article about small ways to step out of your comfort zone.

              Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential. If you decide you’re ready to change your life, I encourage you to start taking small action steps toward the life you want to live. Keep moving forward.

              10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

              10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

              Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

              Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

              1. Make the Windows Your Own

              When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

              One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

              2. Put up Some Art

              If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

              Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

              3. Improve the Aroma

              A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

              Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

              4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

              A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

              There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

              5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

              If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

              Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

              6. Improve Your Air Quality

              One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

              The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

              7. Fill it with Plants

              Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

              They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

              8. Change the Doorknobs

              Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

              Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

              9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

              There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

              Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

              10. Fresh Cut Flowers

              You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

              You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
