Some people say we live life through seasons. Some say stages. Some say we live a life patterned by waves. Whatever way you see life, have you ever pinpointed your most ALIVE living?
We humans often let our happiest life moments pass quickly. Marking a highlight and labeling it as ‘probably won’t ever happen again.’ When, more times than not, we can live more of those moments, turn them into days, weeks, years and into the rest of our lives.
A dear friend just recently asked me “What’s your perfect Colorado day?” Easy answer: sunshine and outdoors. With more description requested, it came into a aesthetically detailed account of adventure and then the next three days, it came to reality, over and over. That got me thinking….Why don’t we seek out to live our happiest of days, everyday?
Is it too planned then? Telling yourself that you’ll wake up and all things that happen will make you happy?
Maybe it doesn’t have to look like that. I say, live freely to feel ALIVE. We must not turn our backs on life again. Surround ourselves by the people that make us feel most alive, in the places that bring our souls to song, actively seeking the things that we choose, that our eyes see as the best things we can do to make this world a better place. Challenged daily if you seek challenges. Opportunities there, if you keep your eyes open, for you to say “YES” repeatedly. Be-a-YES-person.
You wake-up smiling, you’re in the right place. You find yourself surrounded by fantastic beings, who are willing and wanting to share the day. The daily activities couldn’t be more perfect. If you’re a risk taker, then the challenges are high. If you’re a reader, the book has you on the edge of your seat, tornadically flipping pages. If you’re a lover of sound, music comes to you from leaves, water and Mumford songs.
But then again, maybe your most ALIVE living doesn’t have to do with where you are and with whom you’re surrounded by. Maybe, feeling ALIVE is all perception.
