Good Morning My Friends,
Welcome to February where love blooms in our hearts. It’s time to reflect on what you want and why. I’m realizing this is going to be a 7 part series. This being the second of 2, I’ve done so far, on what I feel the magic ingredients are to creating what you want in your life. It can be in any area of your life that you want to manifest your dreams.
Last week you may recall I talked on finding your purpose and today I’m going to talk about Want and Why. Let me be clear, there is no magic, but when you follow the outlined steps it feels like it. I will be doing them on Move it Mondays so stay tuned.
I’ve created another home organic video for you so please ignore my poor videoing especially in the beginning, but I do hope you enjoy the walk and talk with Hunter and I.
And if you don’t have time to listen, I’ll leave a brief outline below. However, if you do have time for a 9 minute chat, put your shoes on and join me on a walk, and then continue on without me. At least we can start out together.
Here is a great study on how just 10 minutes of walking a day may lead to a longer life that was in the New York Times today since we are on the subject of walking that a client shared with me this morning.
Here is the breakdown of my talk:
Know what you want and your why. It’s critical when you want to achieve something, whatever it is, to know what you want. Sometimes it takes time to know what that is, so it becomes critical to know your purpose, which we talked about last week.
When you know where you want to go, you have a direction to move you forward on your path, but it’s not enough. You need to know your why to catapult you forward, to give you the fire you need to make it happen. It needs to have enough meaning to inspire you daily, to keep it alive and propel you forward. Sometimes it’s hitting rock bottom when the lights go on which ignites your light in living a life congruent with what you deeply want.
Our friend Marsha at Alwayswrite walks 1,000 steps a day in spite of her recent health challenge and continues to bring people together and bless us with her wonderful rich stories and pictures. She has some great challenges you may enjoy participating in as well.
Sheereen from The Lightning Bug who is in medical school says she’s not walking a minute on her day off but walks circles around us on her rounds at the hospital. (I gave you Dr. status in my talk Shereen~ thanks for all you do. She has wonderful poetry and musings so do visit her.
Join Frank on one of his Beach Walk Reflections as he always has a rich talk with gorgeous pictures and videos to share.
And Dominique (I will add her site) has been on a mission and working out with her son and losing weight. Congratulations Dominique. It is so inspiring!
It was a sad day when THICH NHAT HANH made is transition last Saturday at 95 years of age but he definitely left his mark on the world. He was a Zen Master and always had a smile on his face and delivered a beautiful message. He was always in my pocket with his words in my heart and soul. On Wednesday, I will share a wonderful experience I had with my Godson while we visited Jikoji Zen Center and honored his life and read poetry in the Zen-do with the community in Los Gatos, California.
Have a wonderful Monday and start of your week and thank you truly for visiting today.
