Today: Look Up.

August 26, 2014

The other day I posted this Daily Dose [of Living Huge] on my social media:

Of course, someone had to make the comment, “At what?” Ha-ha. Hardy-har-har. Smartass. [<< My initial reaction.]

And maybe it truly was meant to be sarcastic. [<< Whatever.]

Then again, maybe the correlation with living huge isn’t clear to everyone. [<< Anything else would be a bad assumption on my part. So let’s explore this…]

What does looking up today have to do with creating & leading a bold, vibrant life?

[First this >>] When I was in high school, there was a sign posted at eye level on the door frame in the girls’ locker room. It said, “When you leave this room, make sure your head is high enough to read this sign.”

No matter what happens to you, what you’ve gone through or are going through right now, hold you head up. High enough to look people in the eye.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou

Look up.

[It’s about this, too >>] Observe the world. Take in the scenery. Smell the roses. EXPERIENCE and be inspired by what’s going on around you rather than just trudging along, so completely focused on the 3-feet right in front of your feet that you miss…well, everything.

Look up.

[Let’s not forget this >>] See your Life. Your Big Picture. Keep your eye on the horizon while boldly navigating the path in front of you today. OWN IT with all of its joys and shortcomings. Take steps today that your future self will thank you for.

Look up.

[And last, but not in the least >>] See that you’re not alone. Connect & reconnect. Ask for help. Offer yours. Give 100% in your relationships. Shift your focus off of me-myself-and-I and look for opportunities where you can be of service to others.

Look up. A small action with big impact.

 
These are a few of the ways I connect looking up + living huge. How do you see it?
