Live Your Life as if Your Body Were Perfect

Over the years, I have both loathed and loved my body. I have found that loving my body is much, much better. So I made a decision to love my body, not in spite of imagined flaws or ways that it deviates from the media ideal of what a body should look like, but rather because it is mine and it is perfect. I spent decades putting my life on hold—waiting to achieve an acceptably, socially, skinny body. I didn’t lose any weight (at least not permanently). All I lost was a few decades. So one day I made a… Read more.

Crossing the Threshold

When you are inspired to do something, whatever it is in you that calls to be expressed, answer the call. Be bold; cross the threshold into uncertainty with the joyous anticipation that you are in fact stepping into your magnificence. And that whatever results will benefit you and others, otherwise you would not have been inspired in the first place. Most of us will not have our life play out in the public eye on Earth’s big stage. Most of us will not discover a cure for a major disease or invent something that changes the way we live.

It turned out to be a really good risk. Michael Jordan was cut from his sophomore varsity basketball team for being too short.

Why Taking Risks Is Worth It

Everything is a risk. It’s a risk to stay where we are in our life just as much as it’s a risk to step into unfamiliar territory. The question is not, “Which decision is a risk and which isn’t?” The question is, “Which decision reaps the highest reward?” This is the principle of calculated risks, which governs our lives; take a step into the unknown and life will reward you for your courage. Yes, it may be scary, but fear is an innate part of the human experience. It can become the chain and ball that locks us in the… Read more.
