The BEST Way for Your Whole Well Being
Jonathan Fields is the author of How to Live a Good Life: Soulful Stories, Surprising Science, and Pratical Wisdom. I like his candidness of moving through our lives on “autopilot busyness”. All those “dis” words we have and use in our vocabulary . . . disconnected, disengaged, dissatisfied.
Are we going through the motions to get through the daily grind? Do we have the knowledge and tools? Do we have the mindset and support? To live the good life!
In my own mind I am thinking on my feet while I am truly tripping over my own two feet! I do not come from a place of grace or patience at times. I know I wish some days I could shift and adapt with more ease. I do need to stay in charge and tap into my strengths. I do need to do what works best for me too!
- How do you live the talk you tell yourself?
What does a life well lived really mean to each and every one of us?
- It is practice and progress.
- It is passion and pursuit.
- It is practical and you just be, go and do each and every day.
At times you know how and where to begin and other times you do not! Sometimes you have to hope, believe and trust in yourself. To have faith. To go with your instinct. To release and let go, especially in what you have no control over!
- How does one live life with direction and purpose?
At times you have to test the waters! To dip a big toe in. To wade in. To just go for it and jump in!
At times there is going to be challenges, uncertainty and the fear of the unknown! You have to weigh the potential along with the risks. There is also achievement and success. You have to create and innovate to find what you love to do and truly discover your passions!
- How does one live life with action and impact?
Get curious and just grab life and live it! Embrace the life lessons and opportunities to develop, to experience growth and gain life experiences. Ask for what you need and want as well as dream and desire. Lean in with love to support yourself and your greatest someones. Everything you discover can be actionable and through the experience validates impact and meaning in living your life!
Life is like an exploration where you find your path to discover the gifts and treasures while journeying along! Communicate, interact and engage. Cultivate, contribute and do your best. Love and be love and learn to share that love with others. Each day is a new start!

You are always so encouraging, Renee. I think my new choice for 2017 will be to keep at arm’s length those who are hurtful to me or my family.
