Remember A Year To Live challenge? Last Friday was the last day of my experiment. I “died.” It is time to draw the results.
Overall, it was a very illuminating challenge and I highly recommend it. Most of the things I learned were the things I already knew but I put them to practice more. Live here and now. Don’t leave anything important to tomorrow if you can do it now. Money is an excuse, you can find money, don’t let money stop you. You don’t have enough time on negative or ignorant people, you won’t save or fix them, leave them alone. Meditate daily. Eat what you want (but take care of your body) and feed others.
My goals were simple and I achieved most of them, or rather Universe made them happen. I must put a X next to the Spain one as well as a friend invited me to travel there in January out of the blue. Now I just have to find a job to be able to afford it.
I was patient, I was brave, I didn’t take no for an answer. And the most important objective of my experiment – this year I really felt alive. I hope to be able to continue to live with this newly found attitude.
You don’t need to take shrooms or travel to Spain to live fully. There are plenty of small and/or free things you can do right now to enrich your life. It is more of a mindset shift rather than anything else. I hope you find your way.
