Living It

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!

Moving . . .

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!

Testing . . .

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!

Being Tested

Practicing Endurance

Your endurance comes from the physical and mental as well as the emotional and spiritual! It can be felt as a positive or negative depending on the situation. It can be freeing or challenging or both at the same time from an external as well as internal level!

It is one skill that is worth practicing to lead a good, happy and healthy life!

I think about neutrality when it comes to endurance. That tendency to not side in a conflict. Being neutral. The mental against the physical. Being unbiased. The self control and self discipline that one tunes into as well as taps into when dealing with a challenge or a conflict in their lives.

Physical Endurance

Heightens Awareness within your whole being!

Practicing to progress. . . There is going to be discomfort and even hurt and pain at times. You can find that place within you to fight or flight in order to overcome the physical as well as deal with the mental and emotional. Finding that self discipline to strengthen your endurance. Being aware and in the present moment. Being open and embracing the learning, the growing and the gaining of experiences.

Mental Endurance

Helps You Deal!

Practicing to learn. . . Finding that self control. Finding the ease among the pushing and the pulling. Taking the time to make good and positive choices and decisions. Knowing when to engage the brain or the heart.

Emotional Endurance

Builds Your Character and Strength!

Practicing to grow. . . Tuning into our emotions, feelings and thoughts. Tapping into our emotional strengths and weaknesses. Listening to your inner voice, following your heart and trusting your gut. Being true to who you are and believing and trusting in yourself. Discovering your strong! 

Spiritual Endurance

Helps You Explore Your Inner Self! 

Practicing to release and let go. . . Finding that balance between discipline and devotion. Being positive in your mind and coming from a place of love by following your heart. Experiencing freedom, joy and happiness. Being mindful, aware and present. Believing and trusting in yourself that you are right where you most want to be in living your life fully!

 Never Giving Up

If you feel like giving up, pause and/or stop and be in the moment! Be open to change, especially your perspective and your mindset. Find what drains your energies. Discover what gives you ultimate strength to move forward!

Know when to surrender, release and let go! The negative. The self defeating thoughts. The limiting beliefs. Practice to progress . . .

  • Come from a place of love in order to overcome your fears.
  • Change weaknesses into your greatest strengths.
  • Being able bodied and open minded.
  • Engage and explore with your whole being to journey along and create your story!

Your surrender to the perfected self in having everything right as well as the ego self in having to be right! No one can do it all. It is okay to lean for support and ask for help! It is better to surrender than collapse or plain just give up. It is finding what works best for you and discovering yourself on all levels! Most of all love and happiness.  

CELEBRATE the successes . . . the experiences . . . each and every moment . . . making memories!
