For a moment right now, take a deep breath, put down all your devices and say gratitude for all you have done in your business and life. It’s a “stop and smell the roses” moment.
I attended a memorial and life celebration service Sunday evening for a dear friend who passed away suddenly from a heart condition. He was ONLY 59. He was one of my creative friends I knew since junior high school. Family man. Devoted father and husband. Amazing lifestyle and wedding photographer. Gone. Just like that.
My heart hurts so much for his wife and sons.
Life takes on a different priority when these experiences show up. Don’t they? So, here is a list of rewards to ponder and take action on, ok? (Thanks Jack Canfield for the inspo!)
Take a 20-minute walk after a few hours of concentrated work
Go for walks in the morning and evening with your spouse, friend or significant other
Take 20 min to listen to music and daydream
Take most weekends off
Take several week to two-week vacations throughout the year
Get regular massages
Engage in daily meditation, exercise, and yoga
Take music or acting lessons just for the fun of it and connection to your artistry
Go to the movies, concerts, and plays
Listen to comedy podcasts, watch comedy on Netflix or Ellen TV episodes
Listen to motivational podcasts or audios when driving
Which one will you do first?
Have a blessed week. Watch for photos from Italy!
