Universal Suggestions

Listen to disruptions.

Celebrate small successes.

Exchange words in your vernacular like working, building, and producing with crafting, cooking, writing, gardening, or painting. The results will taste better.

Hold your truth with humility.

Embrace paradox.

Spy for beauty and then tell us when and where you found it.

Obey your body.

Center yourself often in gratitude.

Keep learning and sharing what you’re learning.

Enjoy.

Flavor Bouncing Your Life

Often times we wonder, sometimes even to the point of not being able to make a decision, about where we should go with our lives, our relationships, or our careers.

We create an endless domino train of “if-thens” and, in doing so, never take the first step into what could actually and beautifully be.

What if our indecision is actually a lack of understanding about the flavoring combos of life?

What if we started to layer our questions about the direction of our days with questions about the flavors, harmony, and experiences we are truly after in this life?

What if we started with the bass note of joy and from there bounced ideas of peace, friendships, rest, weather, culture, and art until we arrived at a wonderfully calibrated milieu that was uniquely fashioned for each of us?

The video below is from Grant Achatz of Alinea in Chicago. I’ll let you take this metaphor from here.

The Inner Child

Talk with him or her often.

Ask him to remind you to be wide-eyed.

Seek her counsel and lean into her innocence.

Think back…How did you see before you were taught in/out, up/down, left/right, right/wrong, or winner/loser?

The inner child knows these answers.

Before we started to analyze everything we simply experienced everything.

So may you……simply…

………………………………………..experience…

………………………………………………………………..everything.

The you that is truly you will be so glad to see you again.
