Before we go on to deconstruct today’s post, I would like to acknowledge the girl in the photo. Her name is Malika and she is my daughter…and she is living her best life! Oh…one more thing…she sends her warmest regards to everyone in my blogosphere.
Are you truly living your best life?
What if your best life rests on writing that novel that has been living in your imagination? What if your best life necessitates adopting a new circle of friends? What if your best life means starting that business you’ve always dreamt about?
What if your best life centers on capturing that image—perhaps of someone or something in nature? What if your best life requires you to accept a new position or a new job in another state or country? What if traveling / living abroad comes to define your best life?
What if your best life involves doing something you’ve never done before? What if your best life entails committing to a minimalist lifestyle—a life of simplicity?
Life is a game, play it; Life is a challenge, Meet it; Life is an opportunity, Capture it. -Unknown
What if living your best life encompasses choosing diversity over division, hope over despair, and love over indifference? What if looking into another’s heart and imagining the best ways to practice compassion is the essence of living your best life? What if going the extra mile to fulfill another’s need is to live your best life?
What if your best life asks that you take a stand against racism, classism, tribalism, and elitism?
What if your best life calls for you to treat fellow human beings with dignity and kindness, not because they deserve such treatment, but because you deserve to experience the freedom that comes with the knowledge of having done the right thing?
What if your best life is linked to adequate sleep, a healthy diet, and regular exercise? What if your best life grows out of teaching, modeling, and inspiring your children to think critically and reflectively?
What if your best life means facing your fears? What if your best life gives rise to taking more intelligent risks while in the pursuit of your goals?
What if your best life rests on taking that first step toward becoming the best version of you, thereby making the rest of your life the best of your life?
