Recent news has caused us to really take a step back and think about the way we’re living our lives. Whether it’s a loss of a legend or natural disasters that are affecting entire populations of humans and animals, both are consequential reminders for us to live life to our fullest ability.
As we fall into routines, it becomes easier for us to forget just how precious and fragile life is.
We can unknowingly wrap ourselves up in checking off our daily to-do list and live with the sole intention of getting everything done, rather than truly living our lives. Although this can seem so very productive, it’s missing an important aspect of life: being in the moment and enjoying each experience.
If you find yourself relating to this more than you thought you would, that’s okay, it happens to many of us - we’ve been there too - and that’s why we’re here.
Together, we can change our perspective and take full advantage of the most precious thing we have, life.As we continue this week’s blog, we’d like to do so in loving memory of one of the greatest:
we can make a meaningful difference in this world by pursuing our passions, and
we can make every single moment count by cherishing time with our loved ones.
Making a conscious effort to be all there, to be all in, wherever you are, and in whatever you are doing - that is living with intention.
Maintaining a present mindset every day will allow you to truly live your life to the fullest. Presence allows you to become more mindful of who and what is around you, and if you give every piece of your life, you give all of you rather than distracted or oblivious you.
You will then begin to see, hear, and feel a whole lot more.
You will begin to live in every moment.
You won’t miss a beat.
Be here, now.

If you were to add up all of the hours you spend working and realize that what you’re doing doesn’t set your soul on fire, are you really living life to its fullest?
Your why is a powerful source. The energy you notice when just thinking about it should light you up in a way that makes you feel like you can do anything. Chasing that light, that fire, and pursuing your passion is an opportunity you shouldn’t push away. You have the ability just as much as anybody else to chase your dreams. We guarantee that once you do, you will realize that work doesn’t feel like work anymore. Your hard work will feel more than worth it and you’ll end up, happily, wanting to do more.
You deserve to pursue your happiness and become the best you that you can.
We know life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. It has a way of throwing some of the toughest struggles at you when you least expect it. But you know what? This is all the more reason to live your life to the fullest. Don’t let obstacles steer you away from a quality life you deserve. Don’t let circumstances change the way you see the good in life and in people. Instead, make it a habit to find the good and truly live.
Our relationships define us. They make us who we are.
They say you are a combination of the people you spend the most time with. Cherish those people and those relationships. If reflecting on this strikes you negatively, make a change.
Surround yourself with people who are uplifting and supportive. Once you find your people, don’t let them go. Instead, let them know how much they mean to you.
Just because life gets busy doesn’t mean you stop cherishing what and who fills your life with joy.
We hope you are feeling inspired to truly live your life to the fullest, because you inspire us to do just that. It is our mission to lift you up and bring you our best, always.
