Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.Mary Anne Roadacher-Hershey
On a beautiful fall-like sunny Sunday, this is a perfect springboard quote to free write in your journal. “Live as if this is all there is” reminds me to live in the present moment.
I awoke earlier than usual this morning and walked outside with my coffee, breathing in the fresh fall air and enjoying the clear blue sky. I love Sunday mornings which allow for a restful day that gives us a chance to reset before the week begins on Monday. In being present this morning, just taking in all of the goodness and positivity, I began my list of gratitude quietly in my head. Afterwards, I got out my journal and began to free write on the above quote.
Do what I love? I love connecting with people. I love spreading sunshine and positivity. I adore those pockets of time when I commune with nature in order to expand my awareness. The child within me still exists. I really love her laugh and her silly ways. The unabashed ability to be goofy without embarrassment and the fun she enjoys when she lets loose. I have worked to incorporate the whole of me (inner child and adult) in order to balance my thinking. I find it a precious gift that I have given to myself over time. My affectionate nature shines through everything I do and perhaps I’m not understood by others, but that’s become ok with me. I only need to find peace within and put my head on the pillow without strife at night. You may think of me what you will. I know deeply within what resonates like a purr of a cat, I love life. I love people. I yearn to help, to laugh and to be in a place of peace. I embrace Joyful Change. I choose that the changes will bring joy. There are two ways to look at life and I choose to find the good.
Well, there was a bit of free-writing for you from me. Have you been able to free write or take the inspirational quotes as a springboard to write in your journal? I hope you’re enjoying the daily quotes!
