Cast your vote

Yesterday was election day. Whether you submitted a ballot or not, you still have a chance to vote. How? Every day is voting day. Every day we cast our votes for what we deem important. How we spend our money, where we go, what we watch and who we spend time with are all votes.

How will you vote today?

What to make today…

There are a lot of things I can make today. There are a lot of things I can do. There are a lot of ways I can spend my time. But most important of them all is to make today meaningful.

Here are a few ways I can make today meaningful: hug, laugh, encourage, kiss, smile, give, rest, play, work, nurture, love and listen.

How do you make your days meaningful?

Be Spontaneous

Being spontaneous does not come naturally to me, especially since I have two young kids. I like having a plan. I like being prepared. I like following a schedule. So, when I said, “Yes!” to a spontaneous trip to the beach, everyone was surprised (especially me).

Live in the moment. Let go. Get dirty. Get knocked over by waves. It’ll be okay. You know how I know? Because that day I laughed harder than I had in months.

Planning and preparation are good, but so is spontaneity.  The reality is that I need a little bit of both in my life. I can’t plan everything and I can’t be prepared for everything. Even if I could, I don’t know if I’d want to because some of the most enjoyable and memorable moments are unplanned.

Be Spontaneous. It's good for the soul.
