If you know me at all, then you know that I geek out about anything related to personal development, productivity, habits, and so forth. I LOVE listening to these two ladies right here, Gretchen Rubin and Elizabeth Craft. I have been a faithful podcast listener of their shows, Happier and Happier in Hollywood for years! Gretchen has many sayings that she has coined in her books and podcast, and one of my favorites is this: “Choose the BIGGER life.” Simply put, when given the opportunity don’t always choose the easier path…but choose the path that provides the biggest opportunity for growth, fun, exploration, relationship building, etc… Yes, that means that you probably should NOT choose to veg on the couch for an entire weekend binge watching Netflix. Yes, that DOES mean you should put on your big girl panties and go for it…whatever “it” may be.
Waring and I are busy right now, and we are certainly tired too…but I am thankful for all that God has blessed us with and want to strive each day to live the BIGGER life!
