Identifying Your Priorities

If you have been around the blog Creative Home Keeper for a while, you know there are a few things I am passionate about, including faith, family & intentional living.

I strongly believe that when we place our focus on the things that truly matter and say no to the non-essentials, we live with more purpose, more focus and a more grounded life.

One of the greatest things we can do for ourselves and our family is to really evaluate our priorities and understand what we view as the most important things in our lives.

Creating a life of purpose and intention starts with a clear understanding of those.

Let’s take a few minutes to think through your priorities.

You might be wondering what this has to do with holiday planning?

The reason I am starting here is because if we are going to truly prepare our hearts and home for a relaxing, joyful and Grace-filled holiday season, then we HAVE to have a good grasp on what we, and our families, view as the most important things.

As in all areas of our lives, when we intentionally plan (whether that be for normal day-to-day planning or special holiday planning), we are placing a value on the most important aspects of our lives.

Take a few minutes to identify your priorities. This is what we are going to keep our eyes and heart focused on as we plan for and live through a meaningful holiday this year.

Use the printable below to list out your priorities.

These are the things that matter most, the non-negotiable things you CANNOT remove from your life.

List them out in order of the most important.

And for clarity sake, it’s best to keep your list no longer than 6 (or 8 at the absolute most) priorities because having too many priorities, takes away our focus from what truly matters.
