It’s Motivation Monday again! I found this quote about Success is Not the Key to Happiness, Happiness is the Key to Success, recently and it really resonated with me and defined my year in 2016 and will continue to guide me into 2017.
You see I had worked really hard to get my writing to the point where brands took notice and would want to bring me on press trips and allow me to travel. While travel is still something I long for, I found that when I was successful, that kind of travel wasn’t making me happy.
I found myself being invited to exotic locations and staying in luxury resorts… but I was missing important moments at home. I found myself reflecting on how much my family would have loved it. Travel is special… and I wanted to do it with loved ones, not strangers.
So I found in 2016, I changed my focus. I used my writing and blogging skills to increase my time at home. I cut back my regular job to 2 days and picked up more digital and virtual assistant jobs to allow me to work from home and be there with my family. My kids are teens, I need to embrace that time while I have it!
Travel is still in my heart and from time to time, if it works out, I’ll still do solo press trips, but more often than not, I’ll use my time to travel with my family instead.
This is what is making me happy in the now… which means success!
