What are you up to? We just finished spending dinner with my Dad and older sister. (Taco night!)
Let’s get right into todays quote:
When you start giving, instead of getting, you make a difference. You can always give a warm smile, a sincere hello, a positive vibe… your attention, your time, your love, and kindness to those around you. ― Roy T. Bennett

The Magic Formula For More Life, More Good & More Energy
By Shamala Tan
Don’t we all wish to have more energy, more life and more good in our lives? And as we get older, we find that we seem to be experiencing less and less of it. But it really doesn’t have to be so.
I am always asked this question, how do you manage to keep up and have so much energy — doing so much, and doing what you do? Let me share my little secret with you,
I have lived by this simple formula for decades now, since the days I overcame my addictions. This magic formula has helped me to have more energy, maintained my youthfulness, given me more life despite everything.
FORMULA FOR LIFE: Life-Giving Activities > Life Sucking Activities
Now, putting it into practice means you need to know what are the things in your life that are life-giving, and what is life sucking. You have 24 hours each day to make sure that you tilt the balance towards life-giving stuff.
Here’s a simple list of things that are life-giving to give you an idea: meditation, healthy whole foods, deep breathing, walks in nature, playtime, reading, relaxing, massage, working on your purpose, exercising, lots and lots of water, dietary supplements, be with positive people, dreamwork, gardening, positive conversation, positive self talk, smiles, working with a therapist, study and etc.
Here’s a list of things that are life-sucking: complaining, gossiping, sugar-laden chocolate cake, alcohol, late nights, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, not drinking water, processed food, drifting in life, negative self-talk, mindless TV watching/gaming, anger, being around toxic people, reading trashy content, popping pills unnecessarily, not breathing properly, bad posture and etc.
I think you have an idea of what I mean just by looking at the above two paragraphs. Now, I am not saying that it is not OK to indulge in that chocolate cake. What I am saying is that you need to practice mindfulness that you are tilting the balance towards more positive things in your 24 hour day. So if you want to eat that chocolate cake, make sure you also exercise and drink lots and lots of water on the same day!
If you spend 8 hours being with negative people constantly complaining and gossiping with them, guess how more hours you need to work on meditating, positive self-talk and working on your mindset? Yup! It is self-explanatory. So the goal for each and every day is to make sure you have more life-giving activities.
Day by day you will ‘build a reserve’ so to speak of more energy, more life and more good. Learn to say no to things and people, learn to keep clearer boundaries with others, learn to know when to switch off.
If you don’t want life to suck, then stop giving too much of your time and energy on things that rob you of life. By keeping a focus on things that energise you and give you life, you will have a greater ability to see love, feel love, experience light and be the light!
