The five most important appointments in your life

How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most. -Stephen Covey

I’m not a fan of going to the dentist. I have a hard time keeping appointments. It is important for my health that I keep this appointment. Even though I know that it is important to keep my appointments, I sometimes still resist going to the dentist.

This resistance led to me sitting down and having a serious discussion between my mind and heart about the Life Appointments that are most important to me.

Shifting your Perspective

You can avoid making appointments by changing your perspective. Instead, realize that you are moving in the right direction. We can check in on ourselves by spending time in meditation or yoga.

It is much better to make a list of the things that you want to do in life. This makes it easier for you to keep them.

All edges appear to be softer. Thich Nhat Hanh puts it this way: “We have a meeting with life, and that appointment is in the present moment. We miss our appointment with life if we miss the moment.

The five most important appointments in my life:

Meditation and Prayer

Every morning, I meditate. Even if I am meditating loudly, sitting in stillness will make the rest of my day quieter. It gives me the power to begin my day on a fresh slate.

Before I go to bed, I will say my prayers. I am able to hear the guidance that the Universe has been trying to give me.


Invite people from the fringes of your life to join your tribe. Create opportunities for people to meet.

Fulfilling Acts of Service

The positive thoughts we send out into the Universe are manifested in the act of doing good. You could do something good at home or get involved with an organization that facilitates our giving.

Enjoy both relaxation and adventure.

I choose to rest when I am tired. I love myself so much that I design a life and a day I enjoy by scheduling time for quiet pleasures and new adventures.


This daily practice helps me to maintain my commitment to myself. This practice gives me the time to accept myself completely and study myself (physically as well as mentally and emotionally).

Your life’s key appointments are a visual demonstration of your values. Your values are who you are. You are fulfilled when your values and your actions align. We live in discordance when our appointments do not support your values. This paradox can be changed.

Renew your commitment today to living in harmony. What is the most important life appointment for you? What are your life appointments?

PS: I make sure to attend my dental appointments because they are important to me.
