Have you ever had a day when all you wanted to do was stay in bed? I have, and it wasn’t because I was depressed or sick or lonely. The reason was simple, and not so simple at all. What I snuggled under my covers to delay or avoid were the responsibilities that come along with work, family, friends and all the extra things I often dragged through life. Until one day it dawned on me that I had the power to let it all go so I developed these three reasons why every day is worth living (out loud!):
First, life is truly what you make it. It is cyclical in every way. We are born, we love, we hurt, we give, we take, we cry, we need and we die. What happens in between is up to us. People with good attitudes get up early, bask in the morning dew, live every day as if its’ their last and love every minute of it.
Second, life is sweet in spite of all the sour parts. We all have good and bad experiences but in the end the gift that doesn’t stop giving is the power to persevere. Learn to push forward with no surrender.
And finally, life is yours! Right now you have power so mystifying that no one on earth can truly understand it. You smile when there are no reasons to do so. You love when you may not get it back in return and you dance even when the music stops. This is living out loud!
Tell me how you live out loud, share the last time you danced to no music.
