Is your cup full?

Someone once explained to me that everyone has a "love cup", an internal measurement of how happy you are in life. Throughout your day or week things will happen to you that empties your love cup. It could be something small that gradually drains you like the stress of commuting to work in a busy city or it could be something substantial like getting let go from your job. He explained that it is up to YOU, no one else, to actively seek out things to refill your love cup, that happiness is not a passive feeling, that it is chosen and pursued.

Don't sit on the sidelines and be passive in your own life. Take risks, get out of your comfort zone and make mistakes. Check in with yourself every day and make sure you are doing things to make you happy, that truly bring you joy and that fill up your love cup.

I hope everyone is having a great week and has a fantastic weekend!
