Traditionally, Tuesday Tips is a collection of ideas that make living life easier and more fun. But that makes a pretty silly assumption—that we need to think or work at all to make life easy and fun. Let's go straight to the truth: life already is easy and fun. Now what? What do Tuesday Tips look like when we're already enjoying our lives to the hilt? We celebrate them!
1. Celebrate yourself.
You're already perfect. You're already doing everything right. You're right on time. You're so loved. You are connected to everyone and you have infinite power. You're a glorious individual perspective who won the lottery the day you were born. Put that shit online! Take pictures of yourself! Go hard! Express yourself! Let it all out! Be loud and be proud! Start a lifestream! Write a book! Make some art! Show the world your perfection. It flows out of you effortlessly!
2. Give yourself positive feedback.
Write yourself a love letter. Give yourself the positive feedback you crave. Once you do, it will start pouring from everywhere.
3. Pay yourself.
Don't feel like thinking? Make money in your head. Practice silently counting as high as you can go, and then imagine you just effortlessly made that much money. How does that change your day? Do you approach your job and errands the same way, knowing you made that much money so easily? It really can come that easily with a little practice. Be it, see it!
4. Feel the way you want to feel.
Danielle Laporte's post on "how do you want it all to feel?" really made an impact on me last week. It's the most effective way I've found to attract experiences that make me feel the way I want to feel. I want today to feel like a sunny camping trip in southern Illinois with all my best friends!
If you ever get caught up in thoughts and forget about your inherent perfection, you can instantly tether yourself back into the Now by breathing consciously. (Try practicing with Pranayama.) Observe the flow of your breath and allow yourself to return to the present moment. Life really is easy. Let go of everything and let life love you. We all love you! Happy Valentine's Day!
