departing question

"If you ask me what I came to do in this world, 
I will tell you, 
I came to live out loud."
~ Emile Zola

What have I learned from living in Barcelona, Spain for three months? That's my departing question. What new insights do I want to take home with me?

Live life on purpose, not on default. Make conscious and deliberate choices. When you don't choose, circumstances choose for you. Live deliberately.

Wherever you go there you are. Be here now. Give what you're doing your best and fullest attention.

Get out of your comfort zone. Discover your talent. Create a new habit or break an old one. There is great beauty in 'shaking things up'. When you change, your world will change with you.

Say "no" to things that no longer serve you. 

Keep an open heart. Practice gratitude. Be authentic. Be of service. Be generous. Stop waiting. Be joyful.

Every day set the simple goal of being more awake and less distracted.

I like that I have figured it out and have so much to learn, both at the same time.
