What Makes You Come Alive?
What makes you come alive? This might be one of my favorite questions of all time. In fact, it’s a question I ask myself all the time to make sure I’m living my life exactly the way I want to. It reminds me of all the things that I consciously make the effort to include in my life.
My dream life consists of:
- Food (good, quality food…with a side of Taco Bell and desserts)
- Family, friends, and my puppy
- Mind stimulation
I spend a lot if time finding new ways to incorporate all these important things into my life. In my professional life, I’ve managed to find a career in HR that lets me explore a profession where every day is kind of an adventure, that lets me establish new relationships with people, that keeps me stimulated on a daily basis.
If I wasn’t working in HR, my other two dream jobs are to be a waitress or a high school principal. Both jobs fit into several areas that make me come alive. I love HR, but know that I have other options that I can love equally if that ever changes.
When I have free time, I love to travel and explore new food, visit new places. I love trying new restaurants. I read dozens of articles about relationships each month, learning about romance and what it means or how to be a good friend. I take time almost every day to get some exercise, and make the effort to figure out ways to change up my routine.
In my daily life, I manage to squeeze in almost everything I love. These are my top priorities in life, and will always do what I can to make sure I’m living the life I want at any given moment in time.
So, what makes you come alive?
