Cheap Feel Goods

dogboy.jpgA fellow coach just gave me a link to Dr. Meg’s interview with Shelly Yates on the 7/17 one hour event when those who opt in receive some sort of recoding (double link helix?) which allows us to participate in and fuel humanity’s evolution. That summary might be a little off, but whatever it is, it sounds good to me! An hour of focus on our human joy? Count me in!
There is a little talk of trouble on the planet here and there that I can skip right on by, because the rest of the message is uplifting and sounds right on to me. But that’s just me.
Anyway, after listening to the interview, I jumped in the shower and realized clean towels were still in the dryer. (I love that about me!) So I grabbed a handy extra one out of the closet, which happened to be a big bright orange and yellow and red and pink fluffy beach towel. I felt like I was on vacation in my own shower!
As I was noticing how great I felt, I wondered where it came from – because if you read my post from last night, you’ll understand how impressive that is. In addition to Shelly and vacationing in my bathroom, I concluded this latest feel good came from strongly honoring a couple of core values over the last 12 hours (Authenticity, Learning, Freedom).

Coaches are always talking about how important it is to know your core values, and on this point, I could not agree more. When we know what’s important to us, it’s that much easy to choose and live it daily. And when we do that, life works. Plain and simple.
If you don’t already know what your core values are, check out this article by Steve Pavlina. It’s a good start.
And if you’re having any cheap feel goods lately, please post them for the rest of us to enjoy!! Thanks, all!
PS – the photo included in this “cheap feel goods” post is of 17 year old Andrei at his visit to Best Friends Animal Society, where he’s better learning how to operate the humane society he runs back in Romania. Are you kidding me?! I’m in love with today’s kids!!

    How cool that you know your essence words, Tuck! You sound like a joy to be around, living those values! Not to mention what fun ones they would be to live out every day.

    Thanks for posting, and for reading, Tuck! 🙂

    And Leslie, if you can believe it, about 30 minutes in to the meditation I came to understand that my greatest joy would be to go back to sleep. So I did. 🙂

    Hey Jeannette…here are the essence words that rock my world:
    Fun, Freedom, Spiritual Community, Contribution, Creativity, Joy, Ease..I use these and a few more as my litmus test for “doing” on the playground of life. Love your postings!!!

    I love it that you have walked through your anger to get to your dessert!
    Don’t we all get a bit cranky when we feel our authenticy and freedom are getting a little pinched.
    And how empowering to not buy into that energy or stockpile it into your energy field but to use it to fuel your jetski.
    You deserve a day at the beach!
    Love you lots and will see you on Tuesday, what time will you be up? I am up at 4:11 AM!

    Love Leslie
