Attitude is contagious, is yours worth catching? Consider this – your attitude towards anything can work with you towards your goals and dreams, and can lead you to accomplish things you didn’t think were possible. OR conversely, your attitude can work against you and limit your potential, which keeps you in a spiral of negative attitude.
It’s also contagious in that your attitude affects others – whether it’s family, friends, or co-workers. If your positive attitude today makes one person smile then isn’t it worth it? I think so. Remember that you may only be one person to the world, but to one person you may be the world.
So which one do you choose? Yes, it is a choice! If you want to live your best life, it’s an easy choice. Choose a positive attitude.
Life can present you with many rewarding experiences and many challenges.
Expect the unexpected, there will be challenges along the way. It’s how you respond to life’s challenges that matters.
You can’t control the curveballs being thrown at you, you can however, control how you react to them. So, make sure you move out of the way as quickly as possible, so that curveball doesn’t knock you down!
Be sure to allow yourself the freedom to experience an array of appropriate emotions for each life experience. These are all encompassing moments that change, mold and challenge us as individuals.
Happiness is dependent on expression of all emotions.
When life throws you a curve ball, what are some of the ways you cope?
Embrace the Day!
A simple reminder that we should take moments in our lives to experience joy, wonder, and “awe” along this journey called Life! Take a moment from what your mind perceives as the seriousness of life, and look up at the sky, or at anything in nature; really anything that puts you in a state of wonder or awe. Also, let’s remind each other how amazing life is, because we are all in this together. Joy, wonder, and awe are simple tools we can use to Embrace Life within ourselves, and outwardly with those around us. Eckhart Tolle said:
“Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be”.
As I sit here having breakfast in southern Texas, y’all, I look out of a restaurant window and can see snippets of the ocean. As wonderful as this is, you know what I found more exciting? You guessed it – one of my fave songs from the 80’s (I have many) appeared on the radio station – Heaven by Warrant. Isn’t it interesting and wonderful how joyous moments can appear anywhere you are? We’ll get back to this thought in a moment.
As human beings we have the ability to make a conscious choice to embrace life. It’s almost magical how fear, anxiety, anger, etc seem to diminish when you are “in the moment”. Now, embracing life can mean different things to different people. I don’t suspect hearing Warrant on the radio is an absolute joy for many of you as it is for me and I’m ok with that. I’m me and you’re you. More on this shortly.
Embracing life is really about showing up for life, accepting life as it is (suspending your judgment), learning from your mistakes, and then making better choices every day because you learned from your mistakes…right!?!
Keep in mind that better hourly and daily choices often involve:
- opening your heart
- taking a few deep breaths
- taking the “high road” whenever life challenges you
- and most importantly accepting who you are! You are beautiful…YES YOU!
Embracing life has many different facets. This blog has covers several different areas of life that we will fully explore in the near future. Krista and I plan on taking you along on a wonderful journey as we explore and hack life. Please stay tuned for more exciting content!
If you have anything to add to this or any general questions on embracing life we would love to hear from you. We are all in this together.
Embracing life as best I can,
Life isn’t about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.
-George Bernard Shaw
You can stop searching, you aren’t lost!
Start to look within, to reach your goals and realize your dreams!
You have everything you need to create the life you dream of.
