Thoughts On Living Well

For many, I think there is a misconception about what living well means. Living well has very little to do with the amount of money you have. It is so much more than that.

Living well is being content with your place in life.

Living well is loving yourself and others and receiving love in return.

Living well is doing what you love. Do you love to garden, bake or write? Go do those things!

Living well is living now. By focusing on today and taking each day as it comes. 

Living well is enjoying the simple pleasures in life. Enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning (or cocoa), bird song, reading a good book, or soaking in a warm bath - the simple things make life just a little bit sweeter.

Living well is being satisfied with enough. We don't have to fill up every nook and cranny in our homes. Less is more.

Living well is eating well.

Living well is moving your body. When the weather is nice I like to go for a walk and we are talking about eventually getting bicycles to ride around town for the fun of it. 

Living well is celebrating the good. A promotion, a new baby, holidays, birthdays, or simply because it's Wednesday! 

Living well is doing your best with what you have.

Living well is not wishing your life away. Enjoy each day because you never know when it will be your last one.

Living well is living without regrets

What I want most to convey is living well is not about how much money you have. It's about creating a life you love and doing things that make your heart sing.

It's never too late to start over and begin to live well.

P.S. Here's a few more thoughts on living well. Hope you enjoy it!

Great post. Some of the "richest" and happiest people I know have very little in the way of money or material goods.
