How to Do Nothing and Feel Everything
Do nothing, feel everything. As a person that is always GO, GO, GO, Iâ€™ve learned to embrace those moments of doing nothing and have started to schedule them into my life. When youâ€™re always on the go, you forget to stop and smell the roses…
A Little Romance
Anyone that’s ever been in a long-term relationship understands the comfort you feel with one another after a while. I know everyone freaks out over the idea of becoming “comfortable” in a relationship, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Don’t you want someone that you’re comfortable with?
The Joy You Feel
Acknowledge when you feel joy. It could be as simple as a quote on a tea bag that makes you feel joy, but itâ€™s important to be conscious of the things that make you feel this way. No matter how big or small they seem, the joy you consciously feel will help shape your frame of mind for when youâ€™re in not so pleasant situations. I have come to celebrate the little things in life. I acknowledge the joy a California sunset gives me, the joy I feel when I experience nature, they joy I feel when I realize that the simplest things are all I need in life…
Love With Your Whole Heart
Love. Love is the craziest of all feelings. What I find strange about it is that it can be as all consuming as grief and hurt just as much. For those of us who have incredibly open hearts, life can sometimes suck. Loving people and things with your whole heart, with every fiber of our beings, can leave us extremely vulnerable and susceptible to unbelievable pain when this kind of love is not returned… but I wouldnâ€™t live my life any other way. This kind of love has allowed me to help myself, and most of all, help others. I always say, â€œgive of yourself, if and when you can.â€ Giving to charity is something that is very important to me, but Iâ€™m not a Rockefeller, so monetary donations canâ€™t happen as often as I’d like, but what I can give all the time is LOVE.
