It’s March already and we are off and running.
Hopefully you have settled into the year well, you’ve found your feet and are making progress.
If you've had some real-world struggles, we want you to know you’re not alone, you are stronger than you feel and you will come through.
Here at Sister & Soul, we want to champion you in whatever season, through whatever circumstance.
Our heart is that you would love your life and the people in it.
Although at times life packs a punch, we want to live our days with gratefulness and enthusiasm.
Yes, we believe in living wholeheartedly.
Simply, living with energy and anticipation; spice and zest, light and colour.
Sometimes we can mistake happy wholeheartedness for a personality type, you know the kind that never seem to lose their bounce and are often found beaming from ear to ear...
Yet having a zest for life is not a matter of how we express ourselves, it’s about perspective and the attitude we choose.
Even the unadventurous can be opened and hopeful for the future.
Even the chilled can live a confident, passionate life.
Here are our top 5 tips for living wholeheartedly.
It’s impossible to live a wholehearted life while pretending, concealing secrets or hiding out.
Sort out issues of the heart, be unashamed of weakness and be kind to yourself.
Your inner life is EVERYTHING. So, examine your heart daily and sweep clean of worry and fear.
We can sometimes feel selfish for spending time doing what we love.
But this is what we cannot afford to miss.
That thing you are passionate about, it’s why you are here.
Find what floats your boat, use it in service to others and TADAH! Congratulations you have found your sweet spot.
When we find our sweet spot, we find our purpose.
3. Give problems and concerns a used by date.
It's important that we don't let bad disputes, doubts or difficulties extend their welcome.
Take time to apply wisdom, deal with things quickly and decide to move on.
Do not take responsibility for that which you have no power to change.
Do not lug your troubles around, turn your heart to hope.
Beauty and wonder are all around us.
Zesty people see life as a gift and appreciate the opportunity to ‘cease the day.’
They don’t look for limitations or lack, they don’t make excuses or indulge in procrastination.
Be present, aware of all that is good and always believe the best.
Giving to others will always make our lives larger.
Be inclusive, thoughtful, helpful and caring; it’s amazing the rich rewards these practices bring into our lives.
So sweet Sisters we hope you found our tips helpful, we hope you are fixed on living with zest, spunk and moxie, we hope you know you were made to be free and uninhibited from the inside out.
