Just a short thought for the day today …
A friend and I were hanging out the other day just watching a perfect, beautiful sunset and drinking coffee when sort of out of the blue she said, “Can I just say how awesome this is? Our lives are just freaking awesome.”
“I agree,” I said.
“We are awesome at life,” she added.
Then we were quiet for a while.
It was a great moment.
So: my happiness tip for the day: Be awesome.
Rock so, so much harder than you think is possible.
Do the things that you never knew you could do and appreciate all the rest—even if it’s just watching a sunset and talking and drinking coffee.
Take the time to really live. Take the time to be awesome.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
