The Art of Living Week 19: Give It Up and Keep Living

What Would Your Give?

If you were told that you would die in a few days if you didn’t give up something, what would you do?

Would you give that thing up or would you say, “I’m done?”

Well, I know that this seems like hypothetical question but in reality, it is not.
The truth is big things don’t snatch away our lives and its fullness; the little things do. More accurately, it’s the lack thereof.
So today, ask yourself this “What are my little things?”

             Going to bed late
Not resting when you need to
Burning your candle at both ends

           Not drinking water
Not exercising (6 weeks of Insanity does NOT count)

Not getting hugs

Not saying “I love you” at the end of your calls

Not getting at least 10 minutes of fresh air everyday (driving with the windows down does not count.)

Not giving and getting love

Not laughing

Not eating grains, vegetables, proteins, vitamins

Not seeing the doctor and or naturopath

Not getting massage

Not stretching

Not sharing what you know

Not learning new things daily

Not having a real bath regularly

Not being in nature

Not being at peace

If you are not doing these things you are not taking care of yourself. This list could be longer but then I would not be able to go pee. (Yeah, add that to the list.)

Be you, be well, be living
