There Are No Dress Rehearsals - LIVE - PLAY - LOVE Full Out

A billionaire dies at the age of 56. He has seven billion dollars, but he doesn’t care. He’s never seen a hearse with a luggage rack. He now knows the Truth - you can’t buy love and you can’t buy life.

So there he is lying in his death bed, lamenting on what little joy he experienced throughout his life. He cautions us that “recognition and wealth are meaningless in the face of imminent death.”

He left us with a few more words of wisdom:

Educate your children to be happy instead of rich so they know the value of things, not the price.

Eat food as medicine so you don’t have to eat medicine as food.

If you want to go fast - go alone! If you want to go far - go together!

The six best doctors in the world:

  1. Sunlight

  2. Rest 

  3. Exercise

  4. Diet

  5. Self-confidence 

  6. Friends

Thanks for the wise words, Steve Gouves. 

I hope this message pierces your heart, dear reader, because otherwise, it could be you looking back from your death bed filled with emptiness and regret.

Why wait until you are sick or nearly dead to look back and wish you’d been/done/had something different/more/less?

All you have is THIS moment. 

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
— Mary Oliver


LIVE Full Out

Go for your dreams. Live while you’re alive. Be bold and courageous. 

Move your body. Honor your body - send love, joy, compassion and healing to your organs, glands and senses. 

Get quality sleep. Feast on life-giving foods. Drink plenty of purified water.

Let go of the fear, “what will people think?” - they’ve either already had their thought/snarky laugh about you or they simply don’t care, either way, what’s it to you?

You are what your deep driving desire is; as your desire is so is your will; as your will is so is your deed; as your deed is so is your destiny.
— Upanishads

PLAY Full Out

Leave it all on the dance floor. Color outside the lines. Do it.

Laugh. Sing. Dance. Play freely like a child.

Get outside. Put your feet in the dirt or sand. Take in some sunshine. Breathe deep.

Get off your damn phone and look around. Take in the beauty.

Don’t go back to sleep. Don’t go back to sleep. Don’t go back to sleep.
— Rumi

LOVE Full Out

Live with an open heart. Trust yourself, it takes the pressure off trusting others.

True love begins with self love. You can’t give away what you don’t have. Fill your heart with unconditional love, joy, peace and wisdom then let your “cup runneth over.”

Catch your loved ones doing something RIGHT.

Express your appreciation like there is no tomorrow - because let’s face it, tomorrow isn’t promised to any one of us.

Put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.  Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.
— Colossians 3:13, 14

What’s standing in your way of living your best life?

Negative beliefs and self-talk?

A history of unhealed wounds inflected by others or by yourself?

Addictions to drama, drugs/meds, sugar, limiting beliefs?

Fear? Someone’s approval?

No matter the answer, YOU have control over your life, even if it’s something as small, yet significant as changing your mindset about your circumstance. YOU get to choose; and choose again. 

The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
— Marcus Aurelius

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to the future generations.
— George Bernard Shaw
