12 Ways to Fall Wildly In Love with Your Life

Topics: , , , ,
  • By falling in love with life, we fall in love with ourselves (and visa versa). When we fall in love with ourselves we can access our true potential because we become willing to give ourselves the experiences, practices and beliefs that support us to succeed AND the self acceptance to get back up when we fail.

    If we don’t fall in love with life and ourselves, then we fall into the perpetual wheel of self sabotage, struggle and suffering.

    How I support people (starting with myself) to love life:

    • I establish powerful, self-serving daily practices. Our habits make us who we become.
    • Be creative and do what makes me come alive. This is the zest of life that makes our time on Earth worthwhile.
    • Meditation, Breath, Sound Expression. This keeps the fog clear so I can focus on what I love.
    • Living with Reverence and Gratitude for the gift of life. I am committed to becoming masterful at expressing appreciation to life for all my experiences, especially the ones that challenge me and force me to grow. This journey is a gift.
    • Healing and finding peace with the past. When I carry the pain from my past with me, it haunts me and blocks me from being free and fully expressed in my present reality. Deal with it by healing it.
    • Getting clear and living with intention. Having a vision gives us the power to drive forward through the difficult times. We all need a bigger vision for our lives.
    • Connecting with nature. My balance depends on spending plenty of time in nature, whether it’s sitting, hiking or sports. I need nature time.
    • Take care of my body. Putting powerful, clean foods into my body, exercising and doing yoga are some of the most important things when it comes to my self care and loving life. We only have one body.
    • Growing through fear. Fear is a natural part of life and because of this I embrace it and honour it when it comes up.
    • Taking 100% responsibility for my life. I recognize myself to be the creator of my life and successes. By taking full responsibility I allow myself the opportunity to learn from my mistakes, rather than blame.
    • Check things off the bucket list. Every year needs to have at least one thing checked off the bucket list. This gives us something fun to shoot for.
    • Making a positive difference in other people’s lives. This is one of the most fulfilling, energy-giving things I can do in life. It gives me purpose. Everyday I try to make somebody else’s day. Big or small acts go a long way.

    There is so much we can do to love our lives and blossom into the fullest expression of who we are … but many don’t. People make excuses, they say there’s not enough time or that blah blah blah gets in the way. Truth is, if you’re not loving it, then YOU are getting in the way.

    If you want to know what it feels like to be wildly in love with your life, then you need to declare yourself willing and committed now.

    You must be willing to change everything and embrace a whole new way of living — if that is what it’s going to take. What I find with the people I work with who don’t love their lives now is that they haven’t been living according to their own passions, dreams, authentic expression and agenda. They have been living to the beat of somebody else’s drum … and that path will always lead to unhappiness.

    Here’s the thing, if you’re locked into some negative habits and patterns, then it’s going to take effort to get out. But it’s the fun kind of effort because you will be adding more and more awesome things into your life that you love (refer to above list or make your own), while allowing the other old stuff to fall away naturally.

    As these awesome acts become awesome habits, your reality will take the form of an awesome life.

    I create the flowIt is highly possible that you will be judged and questioned by the people closest to you who want you to remain a slug and slave to mediocrity, or who just simply don’t understand your new vision, but if you can avoid being deterred from your path and not take their remarks personally, then you will find yourself blazing a trail to freedom, growth and a never-before experienced love for life.

    When I meet negative people like that, I try to see them as mirrors of myself or reflections of my own consciousness. When I hear them being negative or pessimistic about my choices I say to myself (and sometimes them), “Wow, I still believe that? Well that’s just silly and definitely doesn’t serve. I let that one go now {while smiling}. Thanks for the reflection, friend, but I choose to believe ___________.”

    Bottom line is, if you take 100% responsibility for yourself, your dreams and your life then you will create a reality that you love, a body that feels like your temple and incredible relationships that last into infinity over time. It just takes daily practice.

If you DO love your life, what do you do consistently that supports that? Share in the comments below, then share this with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    As an entrepreneur, athlete, husband and teacher, I understand how challenging it can be to fulfill your dreams. I know how frustrating it is to have life’s demands take precedence over your own passions and how discouraged you can get when you continually fall short of your goals. I also know how much more powerful and focused you are when you create the daily habits and rhythms that support you to thrive and succeed. That was the purpose for why I created Cowabunga Life. I felt inspired to support people to embody their potential in every moment. Since 2007 I have facilitated more than 450 meditation human potential workshops, led adventure retreats in Peru, Hawaii, Mexico and Canada, as well as supported thousands of people to harness their personal power through the daily practices and tools in my Cowabunga eCourses.
