Recently, in my backyard … my Dad went through tongue cancer surgery, my mom was injured with a perforated colon during a colonoscopy, and my dear friend, Jen Angel in Oakland, was violently robbed and tragically passed.
I could go on as I know so many friends, family, and clients are struggling. The sheer enormity of it all can feel overwhelming.
And so, I am reminded and inspired to remind and inspire you—that Life is precious.
Life is precious because in a blink of an eye, everything can change.
Life is precious because we never know when our last day on earth will be.
Life is precious because we have no guarantee for what tomorrow will bring.
Whether in your own backyard or the collective—being in the face of adversity brings Life into perspective.
So here are some basic but good reminders to fully live your one precious life—with kindness, soulfulness, love, and courage.
🤎 Take deep breaths.
🤎 Pray for others.
🤎 Be present.
🤎 Ask for help.
🤎 Smile at strangers.
🤎 Forgive quickly.
🤎 Turn off the news.
🤎 Discern more.
🤎 Move your body.
🤎 Go for your dreams.
🤎 Startup your own business.
🤎 Stop saying yes when you mean no.
🤎 End all people pleasing.

🤎 Speak kindly to yourself.
🤎 Follow your yes.

Some days are magic, and others are hard. Both days you have the gift of Life.
