LiFE Prints© – Do you make any?

LiFE Prints© – Do you make any?

The alarm clock goes off and you rise from your slumber begrudgingly; hop in the shower and grab a cup of coffee to hopefully roost the spirit within you. You begin to feel the energy percolate as you make your way in the world.  Then it happens.  You begin to think about all the things you have to accomplish today and what little time you have to do them, realizing they will likely back up into tomorrow; and the cycle begins.  You’ve effectively turned the world around “off” and you’re now moving under the radar.  You are focused on getting to work and starting your list of chores while passing fellow workers without so much as a nod of acknowledgement.  Once in your seat at work you begin the daunting task of reducing “the list” before time runs out on the day and you have to make the same journey in reverse on the way home, to start likely another personal home “list”.  Then to bed and the cycle begins.

Have you ever just stopped.  Paused, for just a moment to wonder what or who you missed while worrying about all your tasks?  Have you ever looked behind you and realized you haven’t left any LiFE Prints©?  As if you moved through your day effectively without touching the world around you?  We all do it; but, let’s try to incorporate some world interaction into our busy lives and see how it makes us and the world around us feel.  Make some waves, interact, leave LiFE Prints© and let the world know you were there.

Consequences; can they be good?

When we hear the word “consequences” it elicits a connotation of something bad.  But, can consequences and our perspective of them be altered for good? We think so.

Consequences are merely a byproduct of an action; and we’re certainly all for action.  So why is it that when the word is brought up do we immediately feel like we’re in trouble?  Good question.

Some of it revolves around our perspective, brought on by years of thinking a certain way.  Some of it is that consequences do mean we’re in trouble.  Maybe we made a decision and threw caution and thought to the wind, acted and now we have to “face the consequences” of a poorly made decision.  What if, however, we were to change our perspective a bit, throw that same caution to the wind and choose wisely!?  Then our consequences would subsequently be good, right?

Taking more chances at life can bring more consequences. So let’s travel back to high school when we learned about the law of averages, add that to a change in perspective and take more chances.  Odds are we’ll find more “consequences” that are fun and beneficial to our well being.  Then keep doing it.  Parlay a small amount of good into something that happens every day.  And, pass it on!
