LEARNING is a life-long task.
Constantly being open to new experiences and learning helps keep us young at heart and our human ego at bay. We never truly know everything because life is in a constant state of fluid movement, and learning is always part of that movement.
LABOR is being able to work and have hobbies you love to do.
Bring in all the things that fill you up with your true meaning of life. Even if you work a paying job that is mundane, participating in hobbies brings great joy, big smiles, and much more love of life. Hobbies are a labor of self-love.
LOVE is the ability to give, recognize, and receive love.
Loving self can be challenging because we tend to judge ourselves harshly. The ability to love and recognize love can only be accomplished by learning to love self. With self-love, we strengthen our ability to love, be loved, grounded, positive, and it gives us the energy to begin shining our personal light toward others.
LAUGHTER is one of the best medicines out there.
Learning to laugh at yourself and with others is a gift that always keeps on giving. It lowers the blood pressure, makes you breathe much deeper (from the diaphragm), gets the circulation moving in the body, and calms the mind. Laughter is timeless and never ages.
LETTING GO of things that cannot be controlled.
In essence, get rid of all the negative thoughts that poison your mind. Learn to let go of the worries, should’s” and “would of’s.” Letting go is a major step in reducing stress within the mind, body, and soul. Worrying is basically “future thinking” – the future cannot be controlled because it doesn’t even exist yet. The only moment you truly have is this very moment.
Begin each day by honoring your ability to learn with love, labor with love, love with love, laugh with love, and lovingly let go of things that no longer serve you.
The world really wants to see your smile.
