For the many past months, after being confusingly impacted by several losses and physical challenges, I’ve been very motivated to more richly and fully “live” the positive qualities and ideas explained in yesterday’s Pocket Perspectives post,  “Choose…plug in……connect to….the energy of so many positive qualities”

I really have been trying to “choose, plug in and connect to” the positive energies of those many positive qualities and skills…. doing my best to try to live those ideas, qualities and skills with curiosity, willingness, openness…and maybe even a bit of enthusiasm!

Wow!!!  Last week, I learned how to ride a motorcycle/dirt bike!!!! Wow!!!
I never, ever, ever, ever thought I’d do such a thing!!!
(it may be one of the bravest things I’ve EVER done!)
Choosing!  Plugging in!!!  Connecting!!!!

Committing myself to….
cheerfully, curiously, openly, willingly and enthusiastically
living the ideas on those lists!!!
Making….“cheerful choices”

 I came up with a “checklist” this morning, to fill in each day…or every few days…
in support of….motivating, nurturing and encouraging myself to try to live these ideas!

In support of living in this more positive, proactive manner, I created this Daily Checklist (specific to my own daily life)  using these wonderful ideas… in support of making cheerful choices to be creating positive habits through nurturing and developing  more conscious ongoing awareness of, commitment to and activation of some of these positive qualities and ways of living each day…. hopefully taking these positive ideas from an “interesting,  theoretical, academic perspective”  to a “living these ideas each day”  perspectiveleading to a richer, more meaningful, engaged sense of well being in our everyday lives!

    Wow! Looks like you had a lot of fun! 🙂 When’s your next date with the bike? 😉

    • That was “fun” riding that bike…scared fun! I was mostly curious to see if I could do it and determined to just give it a try and see if I could learn how. That was in New Hampshire, so I won’t be going there again until next summer. Now I can learn some other “skills.”

        I think that every time we go over a scary hurdle – no matter what it actually is – it makes so many other things easier and less scary at the same time, as if the stakes were lowered in general. 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear the past months have been rough, Kathy. But so glad you’re finding such amazing ways to pull yourself up and out. Dirt bike riding! I haven’t done that since I was a teen. Maybe it’s something I should put on my list. 🙂

    • Thanks Robin. I’ve been making a number of clear choices to “exceed” limits I might have been putting on myself…dirt bike riding was definitely exceeding what I may have thought that I could do! 😀
      Even though the past months were confusing, I’ve learned so much by studying and reading about “resilience”strategies and qualities and “well being” qualities…and have been able to actually use and live those ideas into my everyday life….so it led to positives, so that’s good.
