Living like you mean it

Living like you mean it. Yeah, sure looks good on paper.

Woke up at 4:00am (75 minutes ago) feeling groggy. Tempted to hit snooze. i’m literally never tempted to hit snooze. Back in the day (Disney Resort Operations), i used to do it every morning – for 15 years.

Moving to Disney Institute in 1999, i no longer worked crazy shifts and started having regular sleep cycles. The snooze button became irrelevant because i focused on a regular bed time and an eight-hour a night sleep target.

Staying up until 10pm-ish to watch Olympic Track & Field finals and getting up to be at High School Cross Country practice by 5:50am has led to a short-term sleep disruption.

And i am reminded that my incentive for doing this is i am watching these Olympics as my last Olympics.

i may live long enough to watch the 2020 Olympics, but i am not planning on it.

Joy In Your Spirit

Maybe we could all use to write a manifesto on why we aren’t anymore

Inspiring quote
Not sure who said it… but it’s brilliant.

 

Maybe we could all use to read a book entitled something like this:

How to live like a kid again

Maybe we could all use to write a manifesto on why we aren’t anymore.

Is something magical happening happening in your life?.

On the cusp of a breakthrough in living like you mean it?

What if.

Authenticity (New Currency)

Yes, some people will not like us for it

Florida wildflower field
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

 

When are we gonna finally live full on?

No more holding back on what we really want to do?

When?

Knowing we are going to die is the best incentive to start living full on – authentically.

Yes, some people will not like us for it.

And others will be cheering for us – and smiling – (and thinking, so glad she finally let go of her fear).

A beautifully simple and elegant piece of art designed around that which we think of constantly

Live fully now: Tragedy and Hope’s Alan Watt’s video message:

 

 

Isn’t it a delightful surprise when someone puts together a beautifully simple and elegant piece of art designed around that which we think of constantly, yet struggle to articulate?

Things I Learned Yesterday

You Can Really Live When You…

People Have Always Been Willing To Die For Freedom
People Have Always Been Willing To Die For Freedom

We catch ourselves sometimes, don’t we, just going through the motions. Auto-pilot. Dangerous, in my opinion.

After rereading yesterday’s post, it hit me. Did it hit you? That thought.

The thought that we can not be fully alive until we are prepared to die.

I know this is pretty deep for a Thursday morning thought, but think about. It could be your missing link.
