And We're Back . . .
Old Dog New Tricks

About That . . .

Back in January, I wrote a post about how I came to choose my word for the year (intention), and in that post, I made the rather bold statement that I wanted to . . . live my best life every day.

And ever since then, I've been asking myself . . . what does that even mean???
And ever since then, I've been thinking about it.

Because I don't mean that living my best life is sitting in my garden with a glass of wine and a book, sighing with contentment and thinking about poetry and travel and my next spa treatment.  (Although that does sound pretty good.)  

Rather, living my best life is more holistic for me.
Longer term.  
I want to live my best life not just today -- but every day.  Now and into the future.

For me, living my best life = feeling good.  
Being healthy, grounded, balanced, challenged, connected, engaged.  
Living with a fullness that comes from . . . a holistic sense of being well.  

"Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit -- the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being."    ---Greg Anderson

Eureka!  That's it!

I've discovered that a focus on wellness (in an overall sense) will help me live my best life . . . today and every day.

So.  Strap yourselves in.  We're going on an adventure. 
(I hope you won't mind.)

This is my current journey. My word is rest but so much of living into rest has to do with wellness. I look forward to joining you on this adventure.

Oh my...I can't wait to see where we're going! :-) xo

It's ALL connected!

Vera

All connected for sure (but sitting in the garden with wine does sound awfully nice to me...but the snow MUST be gone and the sun MUST be out...I am a bit picky you know).

Wellness can include sitting in the garden with a glass of wine, right? I'm with you and look forward to what's next!

What a great statement! I can’t wait to see where this takes you! I so enjoy how your reflections get me to stop and think about my own journey. I’m celebrating a rather big birthday which has led me to reflect on what this next decade of my life will hopefully look like. Being physically and spiritually well will be critical.
