We all too often forget how important each day of our lives is. We go about our days and so many things work out just right. But still, every day, so many people forget to take notice. We tend to focus on the negative moments instead of appreciating all the wonderful things that we witness or have occurred for ourselves.

Growing Through Change and Challenges

“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.”  ~Martha Graham

Life goes by quickly and we often don’t take the time out of our day to take care of ourselves. I often find myself saying I’ll exercise tomorrow, I’ll eat better tomorrow, I’ll do it tomorrow, etc. In order to live a healthy life, it’s important to make your tomorrows today. There is no better time to begin taking care of yourself than right now.

Take exercising as an example. Exercising doesn’t have to mean running on a treadmill for hours or lifting weights. If you ask me, that stuff gets monotonous. Exercise is anything that elevates your heart rate and takes your body outside of its normal comfort zone. Going on a walk, practicing yoga, stretching mid-day, etc. are all options that you may find pleasure and comfort in. Find what makes you comfortable and allows you to grow.

“You may not end up where you thought you’d be, but you always end up where you’re meant to be.”

It can be challenging to make a change in life but after the first steps feelings of excitement can take over. Instead of wondering how you will achieve your goals, focus on the steps that will lead you there. Taking things one day at a time can help you see that anything is possible. It can be difficult to trust that things will work out the way they’re supposed to, but they always do. Taking that step out of what is normal and into new adventures is what helps to keep life exciting. No matter where that new adventure is you are bond to find new and exciting things.

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” –Robert Louis Stevenson 

You don’t always need to schedule an elaborate vacation to reap the benefits of traveling. Sometimes it can be simple: take a wander through the woods near your house or take the “scenic” way home from work and stop at a cute little shop you’ve never been to before. There is potential for adventure all around you. The more you can see and experience of this world, the better!

Let Passion Inspire Your Daily Life

What makes you wake up in the morning? I don’t mean your alarm clock or early noises of cars in the street. Not the routine tasks that are calling for you or even the list of to-dos that you need to accomplish by the end of the day. But rather, what makes you want to wake up and be alive?

Day-to-day responsibilities can have a tendency to dim our enthusiasm. Don’t forget why you started things in the first place! If it’s where your passion lies, then keep pursuing it. Always. If you’ve yet to pursue it, then what better time to start than right now?

The Importance of Reflecting on Your Past

Posted by Kelly Wallschlaeger

Aug 20, 2014 10:00:00 AM

Appreciate the past and all you’ve been through—look how far you’ve come! Reflecting on our pasts can give us feelings of nostalgia and a deeper gratitude and understanding of our lives. Reflection, like most things, is healthy in moderation. Above all, we must remember to live in the present, to be conscious and aware, and do our best to live a wholehearted existence each day.

Cherish memories that remind you how much love and joy exists in your life, and let go of negative memories that have been holding you back. You cannot change the past, but you can definitely grow and learn from it. Remember the words of Maria Robinson, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

Relaxation - Why We All Need A Break Sometimes

Posted by Kelly Wallschlaeger

Aug 13, 2014 10:00:00 AM

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.” –Etty Hillesum

In this modern age of multi-tasking, with so much emphasis on speed and efficiency, it can be difficult to remind ourselves how important it is to simply slow down at times. The next time you’re feeling stressed out by a busy schedule or a growing to-do list, set aside some time for yourself.

Do yoga, meditate, curl up with a great book, or simply go outside and enjoy the weather. Though taking a break may not seem productive, it will allow you time to rejuvenate and return to your work feeling refreshed and ready for action.
