Bring Life to Your Life

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. Khalil Gibran, author of The Prophet

Ana, one of the daughters I interviewed whose mother died when she was young, gave me this great quote, “Make sure you don’t leave anything in your closet, unworn, with tags on!”

My interpretation of this is; live every day to the fullest, be present in your life, not bemoaning and living in the past. Ana also gave us this piece of advice, “Don’t be mad that’s she (your mother) is gone, be glad you’re still here.” Words to live by….thanks, Ana.

Affirmation: I’m glad I’m alive.

Coaching questions: Do you have anything in your closet, unworn, with tags on? What’s keeping you from wearing it? What’s keeping you from celebrating life and living in the present? What’s one thing you can do TODAY to bring more life to your life?

  1. Another interpretation: don’t let yourself believe you wasted your entire day by reading, doing crossword puzzles, and playing Scrabble on the computer when you had planned to pull weeds, sort through “a pile of stuff”, pay bills, vacuum/dust.
    Be glad you had time to finally do those “frivolous” things. And be glad you woke up this next day so you can get to that “other stuff”.
