Spending time in nature is The Best!!

img_1763-1

For the past 2 weeks my Lifestyle Inspiration has been sharing a process I’ve been going through as part of a program I started in January called A Radical Shift. My final project is a script that describes, affirms, and projects my essential life. Asking what would all parts of my life look like and feel like when Iโ€™m aligned with my essential self? This has been a life changing and extremely creative process that has included countless hours of formulating just the right sentences that are meaningful and clearly state my essential life intentions. Today I’m sharing the part on my health. Read my last 2 regular blogs to get in the loop and enjoy my beautiful Earth Day blog in the process! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have excellent physical and mental health by making self care and self love a priority! I eat healthy foods, continue to learn and grow, spend as much time as possible in nature, live in the present moment, practice optimism and mindfulness, incorporate movement, and celebrate all that life has to offer me on a daily basis with gratitude!

Spending time in nature is The Best!!

Today I encourage you to think about both your physical and mental health. Are they where you’d like them to be? Have you connected them to self care and self love? And what tweaks, changes, and/or improvements would you like to make?

My name is Laura Li. Through my business and personal brand Laura Li Lifestyle, Iโ€™m focused on self care and self love, while creating my best lifestyle! In the process Iโ€™m being called to get vulnerable and authentically share to connect, support, and inspire everyone on the path of my life adventure! Thanks for saying yes to join me!

What’s your favorite part about Monday?

cabin

I asked the following question on Facebook this morning…

What’s your favorite part about Monday?

My 4 favorite replies were… New week new opportunities, Fresh start!!, New week – fresh slate!, and Waking up knowing that life is waiting for me to experience amazing things!

The feeling I have on Monday is mostly renewal! I started today by connecting with a friend for a walk and nature, two of my favorites, and both left me feeling renewed!! We saw the above image on the path capturing how lovely both were!! ๐Ÿ™‚

It was on the path, which is where most of my ideas come to me, that it became clear the part of my final project for the program A Radical Shift I was supposed to share with you this week was the part about relationships. This is a process I started in last week’s blog if you’d like to read it and catch up.

As I focus on my core values of love, authenticity, expression, adventure, and health; I naturally attract relationships that reflect them back to me. ย 

Connecting with family is wonderful and time spent with my kids is the absolute best!! Sharing a meal, conversation, or simply hanging out together. Connection with close friends is vital and nourishes me at a deep level! And connection with my bigger community lights me up and is an important part of me fulfilling my life purpose!

I encourage you to think about your relationships… Do they look and feel the way you’d like them to and do they include values that are important to you?

I was Ready for A Radical Shift!

I started a program called A Radical Shift in January that’s just now coming to an end. The process of the entire program has radically shifted me! Just prior to being introduced to the program I downsized a house and moved from a community of 23 years and closed a business of 18 years. Although both changes where my choice, it was monumental to have them both happen right about the same time!!

That said, I was ready for a radical shift!ย 

The part of the program I’m being called to share is what I’ll call the final project and describes, affirms, and projects my essential life. Asking what would all parts of my life look like and feel like when I’m aligned with my essential self. I have spent countless hours thinking, rethinking, tweaking, and formulating just the right sentences that clearly state my essential life intentions. The process has been life changing for me and I believe it could be inspirational and life changing to others, so here I am sharing because that’s what I do! I share to connect, support, and inspire everyone on the path of my life adventure! ๐Ÿ™‚

The section I’ll share today (this will be a process over the next few weeks) is the part about my home. It’s short and sweet, and I love it!

My home is more than a physical location; itโ€™s where I am physicallyโ€ฆ Whether Iโ€™m by myself or with others, in the location where my belongings are that I love, Iโ€™m traveling all over the world, spending time in nature at the beach or in the woods, I choose to feel comfortable, relaxed, safe, and at home!

I encourage you to think about what your home looks like and feels like to you?!

I encourage you to continue on your life path!

pathOn a recent walk I noticed many similarities to the walking path and my life path. So here I am sharing, because that’s what I do. I share to connect, support, and inspire everyone on the adventure of my life path! ๐Ÿ™‚

The collection of images from my recent adventure include…

A decision to go left or right… Going right seemed to be clearer, but I wasn’t sure what was ahead on the path?! A bridge that could bring me to another part of the path… A decision to stay on the current path or switch?!… Which way would lead me to my goals and dreams?!? There were many sections where I had to walk through mud and cross over ice. There were also dry sections, uphill, downhill, and flat sections. Locations for getting rid of unwanted trash accumulated on the path. Opportunities to stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery. A bench to take a break allowing time for reflection, recharging, and creation. Warning signs needing attention… Covering things to be aware of, cautious of, and how to handle obstacles on the path. And finally, a tree stump with a lot of rings reminding me that the path of life is a process filled with many adventures!!

Think about the life path you’re on… Is it the one that will lead you to your goals and dreams?! Do you currently have obstacles in your way? Trash to get rid of? Is stopping to reflect, recharge, enjoy, and create necessary?! Offering a reminder that the many adventures in life include ups, downs, easy and hard times…

I encourage you to continue on your life path!

I Can Do It Attitude!!

Today’s lifestyle inspiration is about not giving up until your goal is reached. As I did last week, I’ll use the 2013 movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” with Ben Stiller as inspiration. When Walter is locating the missing negative for the last cover issue of Life Magazine he doesnโ€™t give up until he reaches his goal of locating it. This includes connecting with others for support, traveling out of the country, jumping in and out of a helicopter, battling a shark, and most importantly getting out of his comfort zone!

For me, I’ve dealt with a learning disability my whole life. For a long time I didn’t like using the word disability and certainly didn’t share this with anyone because I saw it as a weakness. It’s only recently that I’ve made the choice to embrace all of who I am and that includes my learning disability. I’ve dealt with feeling stupid, not belonging, and the fact that it takes me longer to do certain things compared to others. Although I’ve had many frustrating moments, I’ve developed an I can do it attitude which has helped me reach numerous goals! And I’ve discovered what I only saw as a weakness has some strength too!

What goals would you like to reach and what kind of obstacles will you have to get out of your comfort zone or develop an I can do it attitude to achieve creating your best lifestyle?!!

I’d encourage you to get any needed support and understand that the path to reaching your goals might look different than you originally thought. Be open and know that developing a strong, courageous, and confident attitude takes practice, time, and is definitely a process! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever underestimated your value?!?…

While watching the 2013 movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” with Ben Stiller I was inspired! In the movie Walter is the Negative Asset Manager for Life Magazine, and although he has successfully manged countless negatives, he’s misplaced the negative that will be the image for the last cover. He goes on an adventure to find it, doesn’t give up until he locates it, and delivers it in time to be processed. Delivers it without looking to see what it is…

When the last issue of Life Magazine is completed and on news stands, Walter sees himself on the cover and is in shock! The cover image is below courtesy of You Tube.

Although he took the responsibility of his job very seriously for many years, he underestimated his value of working hard and collaborating well with an important photographer of the magazine that strongly suggested this specific negative for the cover of the last issue dedicated to the people who made it (who made Life Magazine possible).

Have you ever underestimated your value?!?…

I have more times than I can count! What it can look like is not standing up for yourself and speaking your mind. Not giving yourself credit when credit it due. What it can feel like is being let down (mostly by yourself). Also thinking and acting smaller than you’re intended to. Underestimating your value is YOU placing limitations on yourself, YOU creating your own roadblocks, and YOU standing in your own way of fulfilling the important responsibilities and purposes you were made for!

I encourage you to say Yes and step into Your Value with Your thoughts and Your actions! By saying Yes expect to say No to some other things that have been standing in your way. When you say Yes you have the power to help, support, and inspire everyone!
