Are You Hungry?

To be able to look back upon ones life with satisfaction, is to live twice. Khalil Gibran, writer

Have you ever asked yourself, What am I hungry for? We do this all the time when it comes to dinner but what about your life? Are you hungry for more fun, creative expression, time in nature, solitude, sleep? If you’re a new mother, perhaps it’s all of the above. 

Sit for a moment and consider the question. Then, select one thing for which you yearn and take small steps toward it. Start with just five or ten minutes a day pursuing something new that gives you satisfaction. You’ll be rewarded.

Affirmation: I know how to satisfy my internal hunger.

Coaching questions: What are you hungry for? What are you willing to do in the next few days to begin satisfying that hunger? What difference will it make in your life?

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?
