What is a Life Worth LIVING? (PERSONAL)

Written April 15, 2019

MEMORIES ARE FOREVER…❤️

This morning I packed my suitcase as I depart back to Chicago today. It’s been almost 2 weeks I’ve been in the UK, traveling from Scotland all the way to London. To say the least, it’s been a beautiful ride! 🎢

I placed everything back in my suitcase, everything back to where it was on Day 1 when I first packed them. Everything was all back in its place…yet it also wasn’t. 👐

Why? Because I’m not the same person I was when I got here on Day 1. I’ve shifted. Grown. Evolved in the littlest of details. And I will never be the same person again for as long as I live…👤

Have you ever experienced a moment in your life where your emotions hit you so hard but it was only after the moment had already passed? 🤔

As I packed my suitcase, the realization hit me I was actually leaving the UK, that 2 weeks had gone by so fast. So this morning I decided to take a moment to sit on my bed and just close my eyes…👀

🌟 Take time to remind yourself how far you’ve come. 🌟

I let my thoughts wander throughout the past 2 weeks, and I quickly became overwhelmed with tears. As I wrapped my arms around myself, the tears turned into streams. My mouth slowly gaped open. My head tilted upward to the heavens. And for the moment, my whole heart laid bare. 😭

The places…the people…the moments…the emotions…most of all the experiences. In my mind, they all became compiled into One, sealing into my conscience for the rest of my life. I take this all with me now as I head home, and I’ll take it with me wherever I go. ❤️

What is a life worth living?

👐 It’s one you’ve created for yourself, one you’ve decided on your own terms.

👐 It’s one which lights up your heart wherever you are, wherever you go, one you can say you’re grateful to be living.

👐 It’s one where you can peacefully say at the end of every day: “If I died tomorrow, I’ve lived a full life to completely embrace it.”

This is the life I’m choosing to live, one where the heart keeps filling and the tears keep coming. So until we meet again UK, I love you! ❤️ #EudaimonicLife

How Giving Back is An ANTIDOTE!

🌟 Find ways to give back to others. 🌟
.
Now this may sound a bit cheesy or common sense, but common sense isn’t common. Otherwise more of us would be using it. 😉
.
And not only is giving back “common sense”, it’s a powerful antidote for suffering. Yes, an antidote for suffering! 😲
.
How so, Donald? 🗣️
.
📍 We gather new perspectives on our own suffering through other people’s. We see how our hopes and fears are similar to each others. We continue to realize we’re not alone in our pain.
📍 When we focus on our problems, they magnify in our minds. The less we focus on our problems, the greater they shrink.
📍 We forget that problems are a necessary part of life. Because without problems, we wouldn’t grow as people.
.
I challenge you to give more back to others, even when you think you can’t. One thing I can assure you on…👂
.
❤️ There’s never going to be a “perfect time” to do it. ❤️
.
This past weekend I had the privilege to give back and serve at another one of Tony Robbin’s Unleash the Power Within event for 15,000 participants! Add to that, I’ll also be serving at London’s event too next month! 😄
.
The progress I’ve made the past few years I give a lot of credit to his work! The least I can do is give back and pay it forward. ❤️ #UPWLA2019

#TranscendLabels???

What do I mean to #TranscendLabels🤔

We create and use labels very often. We use them with political parties (Republican, Democrat, Independent), with personality traits (Introvert, Extrovert), with racism (African American, White, Asian), with sexual orientation (Gay, Straight, Bisexual), with food habits (Paleo, Atkins, Vegan), with medical diagnoses, etc.

Creating labels gives us a feeling of security, the impression we greater understand how the world works. They reinforce what we wish to understand more about versus what we don’t. They provide a sense of community among others who share the same beliefs and values.

And none of these things are right or wrong. But I’ve also found the more labels we continue to create, the more limitations we unintentionally set in understanding ourselves, others, and the world around us. I see it having a negative effect. Instead of the individual, we have a category. Instead of having multiple political views, we have a side to choose. Instead of understanding someone’s emotions, we have a diagnosis. Instead of understanding a culture, we have a stereotype.

By no means am I saying I’m perfect either. But I wouldn’t be where I am today if I kept saying: “It’s because I have Autism…It’s because I have a disorder…It’s because I’m an Introvert… It’s because Veganism is weird…” Transcending our labels and the ones we’re told about who we are, you will soon see how much you in this life are capable of. Much love. #TranscendLabels

I Reached My Heart

I remember one of the first times I felt truly touched by another person. I couldn’t really place it into words back when it happened, but I know I had felt something deep. It was these emotions of overwhelming love, a deeper sense of appreciation for something really close to my heart. It wasn’t a feeling I had experienced often, and perhaps that was why it was so powerful at the time. Continue reading “I Reached My Heart”
