This was inspired by the short but powerful video at Jungle of Life. I think I want to watch it once a week for the rest of my life!
The quality of your life is up to you. Every moment is an opportunity to let go of the old and breathe in new life; to exhale fear and inhale love; to exhale pettiness and inhale magnitude; to exhale grandiosity and inhale grandeur.
Today, decide to make your life delicious, juicy and fun!
The following are suggestions based on my life and plan:
Wake up and smell the day
Go outside in the early morning and be grateful to be alive and while your out there smell the day!
Thrive on simplicity
Don't complicate you life. To me less is more because I don't want to spend time fixing and taking care of stuff. I don't purchase anything new until the old is worn out. My car, a VW beetle is 10 years old and still going strong.
Thrift shops, beauty schools and the library
These favorite places help me save money for traveling. The money I'm currently saving will be spent staying in a hotel at the bottom of the Grand Canyon and bungee jumping in New Zealand.
Spend time with people who matter
I only want to be with non-complainers, my family, friends and other weird, crazy and fun people.
Discovering new people, places & ideas
Blogging has allowed me to connect and know people from all over the world.
Make your life happy
Happy thoughts plus happy words plus happy actions = happy people. Karl can tell you how to "Work Happy" and enjoy life.
Absolute "No" List
Nope, I'm not going to judge, regret, gossip, or waste time doing other useless things that add nothing to the world. "No matter what you think you have no idea what is really going on" – Anasasi
Absolute "Yes" List
Katie helps people do kind, funny and silly and invites you to come along! On my list will also be using to magical phrases even more: I love you and thank you.
Take a risk
I'm going to live on life's edge. Risk taking is a way of life for bold people. Don't hesitate to take any step in the right direction, ever!
Rise above the ordinary
This is so easy to do when you stop following celebrities and tune out all media. Evita at Evolving Beings is an example of being extraordinary.
Take delight in life
I take delight in my family, friends, good food, a variety of music, children, the elderly, blue skies and sunshine.
Create good times for yourself Think of them as "Life's Coming Attractions." Peeps what good stuff are you creating for your future?
Loving relationships I'm makin' every relationship I have loving and peaceful. I don't have room or time for littleness or distractions.
Believe the best is yet to come
The best is yet to come for all of us. "Joy Girl, Megan is an example of the many, wise, friendly and caring people I've met online.
Create your own health care plan
In order to live a grand life I need to stay healthy. No one is more responsible for this than me! If you need a plan for health and wellness Stacey is your go to person.
I want to live in the rainforest like Robin Easton did. She's going to tell us about it in her new book!
Dinner by candlelight When is the last time you set this scene at your table? Let's shake things up and see if we can do it once a week.
Appreciation and Gratitude There is nothing more powerful than living these out loud! We can't be grateful and unhappy at the same time.
Engage in it, give it all you've got. Write that book, make that phone call or call that date.
Life can be difficult, it's what makes us interesting, human and capable.
Celebrate that and positively anticipate your future. We are truly blessed!
Amen! Great list and wonderful links to powerful thinkers.
