75 Questions: Day 3



There are 75 days before the start of a new Gregorian calendar year. So, for the next 72 days (Monday – Sunday) the blog postings will ask you one question. That question may inspire you, it may perplex you, it may anger you, or it may tickle you. The whole thrust of the 75 questions is to prompt a reaction and honest answer to the probe.

The unfiltered intent of the 75 questions is to capture change. The questions are to be a catalyst for inner change that leaves you feeling more dynamic, powerful, intrigued, and authentic. When these salient emotions are opened up within you (they already exist), you change and your world changes and the whole world changes with you.

Post your answers, you will get a response to your replies and we will use these 75 questions to lift life as the year 2017 begins.

Question 3: What is exciting to you?


Take It Easy On Yourself

It’s time to celebrate YOU! The woman you are should be celebrated. The man you are must be celebrated. The young person or child that you are deserves loud claps of celebration too. It is time to celebrate.

Why is it time to celebrate? You need to celebrate and take it easy on yourself because life is so wonderful and you have contributed to that awesome wonder. Each time that a smile is shared, a word of praise is exchanged, an unexpected gift is given or a song is shared that lifts the heart-you have made a difference.

Celebrations also allow you to take it easy. Oftentimes the frenzied pace of the day demands that your attention is elsewhere on tasks and on competing requests to be fulfilled. Understood, but you have to take it easy too. Breathe in the fresh air, tickle a kitten, skip on the sidewalk, hum a bright tune. Have fun, celebrate.

A good way to keep a proper perspective while your life is hectic, as it can often become, is by focusing more on the fun and enjoyment you can share with others. Here are a few tips to take it easy on yourself:

  • Find your center. Get to the core of who you really are. You are more than a time clock. You are more than a carpool driver. You are alive and active for a purpose. Connect with that purpose person and take a minute or two and celebrate your given, central  reason for being here at this time, right now.
  • Be in the present. Blank out all of the head noise and just be. It is okay and the sane-making to be with yourself in the present. Cancel all noise and just be in  the serenity that is ever present with you. Be present.
  • Claim your right. You are entitled to celebrate. A you focus is proper and necessary each and every day. Shun any notion that you have to wait for your birthday or special event to celebrate. Celebrate and add good vibes any time you want to.
  • Relax and rejuvenate. Be free. Be positive, expect positive and everyone ends up winning. You can create a victory for yourself and others today by simply choosing to enjoy every second. Refresh your life. Relax and rejuvenate. Take it easy on yourself.

Jump for joy. Make it an any person festival of happiness. Look up and marvel. Plant your feet on your solid awareness that you are created with purpose. Smile, life loves you.
