Live, Love, Laugh…..3 of the reasons to abide by these ‘Laws of Life’

I was just thinking. Thinking out loud and came up with a few simple notations on the life that we live….. Or some of us do

Here are three of my Laws of Life.

The Three Laws of Life

  • To make a Life you need to Live it.

  • To enjoy a Life you need to Love it.
  • And to Love a Life you need to Laugh a lot.

Well, how about You?

Do you tick all the boxes here?

Or…

do you tick one or two?

To live Life fully, all three must be present in your Life. All three must be embraced by You.

“To make a Life, you need to Live it”.

What is “Living”? being aware of your surroundings and …what You are capable of. Then using this awareness to create a Life that you want. That’s a simplistic answer I know. However much of our lives can be lived more fully by adopting a “simpler view of things”. You’ve no doubt heard a million times how good, great, powerful you are. Believe it.

You have the power to Live fully. Just be aware of this power.

“To enjoy a Life you need to Love it”

What’s this guy banging on about, you may be thinking. We go thru periods of enjoyment. We have our ‘ups & downs’. Life is not always enjoyable. Some experience very little joy at all…..“Life sucks” syndrome.

However, if you take a different viewpoint and accept that their will be ups & downs…and love them for what they are, then Life may not suck so much. We can learn a lot from the “downs”. And consequently have greater enjoyment from the “ups”. Love your Life as it is, or how it can be or how you want it to be…just Love it.

It’s there for your taking.

“And to Love a Life you need to Laugh a lot”.

Not necessarily, you may be a serial smiler. However I did want to include this ”law”. I don’t know anyone who truly loves their Life and can’t crack a smile. In fact I bet that most true lovers of Life split their sides with laughter regularly. “Laughter is the best medicine”. Heard that one before?

Laughter is feel good music. It adds to the symphony of Life…and you have to Love that.

Do these ‘laws’ resonate with you? I welcome your thoughts and comment below.

Are you drowning in a world of detail?

Give me a “hell yeah” if the heading resonates with you.

Detail slows us down. It stifles creativity. It cramps our freedom of expression.

Yet “detail” is so prevalent  in many parts of our Life.

It’s like having rules with extra fine print attached.

I’m not much of a ‘rule follower’. I like to exercise my freedom to create, without unnecessary restriction.

So, how do we express ourselves, live free and create, with so much detail hanging around us?

TRUST…..in your Big Picture

If you don’t have a bigger picture of how your Life should pan out for you then you will likely be chasing around, hanging on to every ‘detail’ that comes your way. Trying to dot the “i’s” and cross the “t’s”. That’s fine if you work in a Law firm.

If you do have a ‘Big Picture’, you have something to rely on. Have faith that it will turn out. Keep showing up. Keep the dream in focus. The greater the focus, the greater the pull. Your Big Picture is like a magnet. It draws you ever closer…and it draws all of the necessary detail with it. Without you having to worry about it.

Avoid the messy detail, keep your Big Picture alive.

Are you caught up in every ‘detail’ imaginable or is your Big Picture in focus? Let me know below.

Humanity, the Beach & a million Thoughts…

Changed spaces this morning and spent 2 hours walking the beachfront esplanade a few minutes drive from my home.

And what a cracker of a morning it was! Delightfully clear skies, no breeze & pleasantly mild for this time of year (early winter). The weather has calmed from the past few days when an east coast “low” had created some (previously) nasty weather…but not today.

Today the surf was boiling and many boardriders were taking advantage of the swell. World famous Snapper Rocks(home to The Billabong Pro each Feb/March) was a little too dangerous this morn though & consequently “action” there was quiet.

There was much more action on the boardwalk.

Here were people of different nationalities (holiday makers mostly), different shapes and sizes, some smiling, some frowning (what on earth for?), some expressionless, some animated, some talking, some just lost in thought….. all mixing in a patchwork quilt of Humanity and with seeming Harmony.

I love to observe people, read their faces, peer into their thoughts or at least what I imagine that they are thinking. You can tell so much from people’s facial expression, at least I feel that I can…..and that’s really helpful as a Life Coach.

And mostly I have been correct.

Tuning in on another’s ‘wavelength’ when communicating with them makes for generous and valuable conversation…nothing wasted.

Getting into fresh space is great for my soul. Thoughts flow freely and often (need to have a notebook handy)…..it’s like a complete renewal of my system. Co incidentally my “computer guy” was giving my computer a ‘renewal’ at home at the same time as I was at the beachfront. It now has more space….. of the hardrive kind.

Needless to say, I had more thoughts than I could handle this morning however made a ‘mental note’ of the ones that most caught my attention. These will come in very handy for a new “Coaching philosophy” that I am working on currently.

My best thoughts come to me when they are allowed to.

Being in a fresh space, uninhibited by deadlines, phone calls, email alerts allowed better communication with my higher self (woops, a little woo woo there)…..must be the Sun & fresh salt air getting to me.

I am extremely grateful to have the power of Choice…..to choose my space and change when necessary, to be able to choose the thoughts that give me the most value…..and to be part of this patchwork quilt of Humanity.

Is Time on your side or is it slipping away without notice?

“Time” was something I included in my last post. It’s something that I have been much more accutely aware of in recent years.

As I flip the pages on the calendar of my Life, I am much more appreciative of what “time” has offered to me and how precious it is to me now, tomorrow, next week & so on.

Time is running thru the hourglass for us all.

How often do you think about this?

“Time” is often taken for granted by many as if it is a seemingly infinite resource that we can tap into at any time(excuse the pun), much like withdrawing available funds from our bank account when we need it.

However there will come a “time” (sorry) for all of us when that resource will become dry and there will be no overdraft available .

The present moment is our only guaranteed time here. Taking more time (pun intended) to enjoy, reflect, live life in the present moment is one that should be taken very seriously.

So when you hear the voice inside you or other people say….”another time”, “haven’t got the time …”, “wish I had the time…”, “If only there was time…”, “There’s not enough time”,

consider this…..how are you spending your time now?

Consider the things that are really important to you and prioritise the time accordingly.

Live in the now, think in the now, dream & visualise in the now because life is a series of “now” moments….. not yesterday or tomorrow moments but “now” moments – live your life, enjoy your life, Now.

What are you doing now?

Can I suggest that you prioritise some time to have a read of these marvellous posts from some fellow blogging friends of mine:
